Vivo officially sets a date for the X60 series' launch; announces new Zeiss collaboration for its cameras
Vivo has finally confirmed that its upcoming X60 flagship series will launch on December 29, 2020. This event may represent some interesting changes for the OEM, not the least in that it is to adopt the Exynos 1080 SoC for these phones rather than Snapdragon silicon as usual.
The devices should also be the OEM's first premium products to ship with its new Android skin, OriginOS, and may also integrate 120Hz displays across all variants this time. Then again, the Vivo X60s may be similar to their predecessors in that they will have a larger-than-average main shooter in their rear camera array.
Vivo has also let it be known that at least 1 of these phones' cameras has been designed as a result of a new collaboration with the lens specialist Zeiss. A new official teaser shows this company's branding on the X60s' new camera hump, whereas other renders show that the same exhibits text indicating that it has "Vario-Tessar 1.48-3.4/16-125 ASPH" technology from the same firm.
Zeiss and Vivo might offer more details on these indications at their joint press conference on this new collaboration, which will take place ahead of the X60 launch on December 17, 2020. Meanwhile, the former has given no hints as to what this new business move could mean for its existing partnership with Nokia.
