Vivo has announced that it will debut the X60 premium smartphone series outside China for the first time on March 22, 2021. They will be powered by the Snapdragon 870 SoC, as opposed to the Exynos 1080 they launched with in their domestic market. Nevertheless, they may prove an interesting new entry to the global market.

Vivo has just effectively confirmed leaks that suggested its current X60 flagship series would launch outside China soon with the Snapdragon 870 processor, apparently leaving the Exynos 1080-powered SKUs a domestic exclusive.

This might be good news for mobile photography fans in Malaysia, as the OEM has partnered with Zeiss in order to develop these second-gen "gimbal-cam" phones. Then again, Vivo's new teasers only seem to show the X60 and not its Pro variant, which also has a periscope zoom lens in addition to this spec. Nevertheless, it also specifically states that the new series is coming on March 22, 2021.

Hopefully, this event will be followed up by similar launches in more regions. Vivo is, for example, also active in Europe, a market in which it also plans to expand in 2021. Therefore, its amended X60 series might also be destined for that area this year...which, as that might mean we get to review them here on NBC, would be just great.

(Then again, you can also just order a Vivo X60 Pro now on Amazon.com.)

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
