Vivo has announced two new flagship smartphones, the Vivo X30 and Vivo X30 Pro. These two smartphones are almost identical, the major difference can be found in their camera setups. The Vivo X30 Pro, unlike the X30, has a 5x periscope camera on the back. More on that later.
Other than that difference that can be seen on the back, they look the same. These two phones come with extremely thin bezels, and are made out of metal and glass.
Both devices feature a display with rounded corners, and a display camera hole. That hole is placed in the top-right corner of the display, and it’s fairly small and close to the corner. Both devices include three vertically-aligned cameras, while the X30 Pro also has that periscope camera next to them. An LED flash is included on the back as well, as is Vivo’s logo.
Both devices included an in-display fingerprint scanner, and this is an optical in-display fingerprint scanner we’re looking at here. Physical keys sit on the right-hand side of both phones.
Both devices include a 6.44-inch fullHD+ (2400 x 1080) Super AMOLED ‘XDR Display’. That display can boost brightness all the way up to 1,200 nits.
Samsung’s Exynos 980 64-bit octa-core processor fuels both of these phones. That chip was announced back in September, in case you don’t remember. It comes with an integrated Mali-G76 MP5 GPU, and it has an integrated 5G modem.
A 4,350mAh battery is included in both devices, and both phones support 33W Flash Charge fast wireless charging. A 3.5mm headphone jack is also included in both instances.
Both devices include a 64-megapixel main camera (f/1.8 aperture, 26.4mm lens) on the back. That camera supports Super Night mode that can stack 12-16 photos in order to reduce noise in the dark. ‘Hyper HDR’ is also included in the package.
An 8-megapixel ultrawide camera (108-degree lens) is also included, while a telephoto lens is also placed on both phones (2x optical, 20x digital zoom). Now, the Vivo X30 Pro also includes that periscope camera that we talked about. That camera can shoot 12-megapixel photos at a native focal length of 135mm, and it can zoom digitally up to 60x. There’s even a dedicated mode for taking moon photos.
A 32-megapixel camera sits on the front side of both phones. That camera comes with an f/2.0 aperture lens, in case you were wondering. Android 9 Pie comes pre-installed on both phones, along with Vivo’s Funtouch OS 10.
Both phones will become available in China later this month. The Vivo X30 Pro will launch on December 24, and its 8GB RAM variant with 128GB of storage will cost CNY4,000. The variant with the same amount of RAM and 256GB of storage will cost CNY4,300.
The Vivo X30, on the other hand, will come with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage first, on December 28, for CNY3,300. The 8GB RAM model with 256GB of storage will become available a bit later on for CNY3,600. As you can see, the X30 Pro will go on sale first.
