Vivo X90, Vivo X90 Pro, and Vivo X90 Pro+ specifications revealed by new leak
With the Vivo X90 series due for launch in a few days, there isn't much left to the imagination. Key specs of all three devices are known thanks to a deluge of leaks and teasers. Unlike last time, Vivo actually wants to release three flagship smartphones, although the Vivo X90 Pro was conspicuously missing from the leak ecosystem until very recently. Now, Ishan Agarwal (via Pricebaba) has effectively ruined Vivo's surprise by revealing the entire Vivo X90, Vivo X90 Pro and Vivo X90 Pro+ spec sheets.
Vivo X90 Pro+
Starting with the top-of-the-line Vivo X90 Pro+, one gets a 6.7-inch 1260p AMOLED panel clocked at 120 Hz and 300 Hz touch sampling rate. It will be the only smartphone of the lot to run a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, as confirmed by an earlier Geekbench listing, complete with LPDDR5X RAM and UFS 4.0 storage. The smartphone will draw power from a 4,700 mAh battery. Wired and wireless charging wattages are rated at 80 Watts and 50 Watts, respectively. This is a tad puzzling, given that its competitors offer remarkably faster charging in their upper-mid-range offerings.
Some of the earliest Vivo X90 Pro+ leaks and Vivo's marketing strategy around the phone has been centred around its camera. The star of its round camera module will be a colossal 1-inch 50 MP Sony IMX989V sensor. A 64 MP OmniVision OV64A telephoto lens (3.5x optical zoom) will accompany it, along with a 48 MP Sony IMX598 ultra-wide-angle lens and a 50 MP Sony IMX578 portrait lens. Lastly, a 32 MP front-facing sensor will handle selfies and video calls.
Vivo X90 Pro
Moving on to the middle-of-the-pack Vivo X90 Pro, it will substitute the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 with the MediaTek Dimensity 9200. Its screen specs remain the same as the Vivo X90 Pro+, although there could be some minor differences. It gets a remarkably better 4,800 mAh battery that supports wired charging at 120 Watts and wireless charging at 50 Watts. The Vivo X90 Pro will also feature a brand new 50 MP Sony IMX866 camera sensor. It will reuse the 50 MP portrait lens from its elder sibling and substitute the ultra-wide-angle lens with a 12 MP module. Other specs include a 32 MP selfie sensor, LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 4.0 storage.
Lastly, the vanilla Vivo X90 will also bat for Team MediaTek with its Dimensity 9200. Its rear camera module retains the 50 MP Sony IMX866 and 12 MP ultra-wide-angle lens but opts for a 12 MP telephoto sensor instead. Other specs include a 6.7-inch 2K 120 Hz screen, a 4,800 mAh battery with 120 W wired fast charging, and a 32 MP selfie camera. It probably doesn't support wireless charging, otherwise, the feature would have shown up in its TENAA listing.
Looking at the spec sheet alone, the Vivo X90 Pro+ could easily give the Galaxy S23 Ultra a run for its money, at least in camera prowess. The colossal sensor plus Leica colour science might even allow it to take the fight to the Huawei Mate 50 Pro. The Samsung flagship has the advantage of a faster Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 variant, giving it an edge in synthetics and gaming. Then again, that won't matter given Vivo has put all of its eggs in the camera basket for the past generation or so.
