- vivo has launched X90 and X90 Pro models in global markets.
- However, the company is not bringing the X90 Pro Plus along for the ride.
Vivo announced the X90 series in China late last year, and the phones boast powerful processors, fast charging and exciting camera technology. It took a while to wait, but the series is finally hitting the global markets.
Unfortunately, Vivo is not launching the X90 Pro Plus globally, instead the company is bringing the standard model and the X90 Pro. The company did not give a specific reason for releasing the Pro Plus variant in global markets, as a representative simply told reporters that it will listen to consumer feedback on the X90 series.
However, we want to see this model outside of China, as it offers a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, a QHD+ display, an impressive Qualcomm 3D Sonic Max fingerprint scanner and a 64MP 3.5x periscope lens. But the X90 and X90 Pro still look like solid devices on paper.
Both the phones share a number of features such as MediaTek Dimensity 9200 processor, 6.78-inch OLED display with 2800 x 1260Hz resolution, IP68 rating and 120W wired charging. For the latter, vivo offers two modes, Balanced. " and "Quick Charge", the former can reach 50% capacity in eight minutes.
