Vivo has lifted the lid on the X80, the cheaper alternative to the X80 Pro. While the X80 lacks some of its more expensive sibling's features, it still packs a Dimensity 9000 chipset, up to 12 GB of RAM, and a 4,500 mAh battery that supports 80 W fast charging.

Vivo has launched the X80 in China, one of three smartphones that it has released today in its home market. Fundamentally, the X80 is a scaled-down X80 Pro, although the pair share a few features. For one, they both rely on the MediaTek Dimensity 9000, a 4 nm chipset that Vivo complements with its V1+ chipset. Additionally, they also utilise the Samsung E5, a 6.78-inch AMOLED display that operates at up to 120 Hz.

However, the X80 utilises an LTPO 2.0 backplane rather than the third-generation version found in the X80 Pro. Still, LTPO 2.0 allows the X80 to dynamically adjust its refresh rate between 1-120 Hz to maximise battery life and minimise power consumption. Incidentally, the X80 supports 80 W fast charging, matching the X80 Pro. There is no wireless charging support for the 4,500 mAh battery though, which is 200 mAh smaller than the X80 Pro's capacity.

Vivo has equipped the X80 with less capable rear-facing cameras as well, with the Sony IMX866 (50 MP) serving as its primary camera. Meanwhile, the X80 also has 12 MP ultra-wide-angle and telephoto cameras. Unfortunately, a periscope zoom camera is not to be found on the X80. While Vivo has not commented on an international launch yet, it has begun offering the device in China at the following prices: 

  • 8 GB of RAM/128 GB of storage - CNY 3,699 (~US$564)
  • 8 GB of RAM/256 GB of storage - CNY 3,999 (~US$610)
  • 12 GB of RAM/256 GB of storage - CNY 4,399 (~US$671)
  • 12 GB of RAM/512 GB of storage - CNY 4,899 (~US$747)
