vivo’s upcoming X70 family has had no shortage of leaks, live photos, official teasers and certifications lately, leaving very little to the imagination for the September 9 unveiling event. Any remaining confusing regarding specs across the trio of X70 models should now be officially cleared-up thanks to an extensive specs sheet leak.
Again, most of these specs were already known, but, we’ll still recap everything that we know, starting with the flagship X70 Pro+. It is rocking a 6.78 QHD+ (3200 x 1440-pixel), 10-bit, 120Hz, HDR10+, AMOLED display, of the Samsung E5 variety, which has 25% better power consumption compared to E4, 8000000:1, and a local peak brightness of up to 1500 nits. There is a punch-hole 32MP selfie on the front as well as an in-display fingerprint reader. Providing power – a Snapdragon 888+ chipset, with 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage, as well as a 4,500 mAh battery, with 55W fast charging and 50W fast wireless charging. All of this crammed inside a 64.54 x 75.21 x 8.89mm, 209g body. For cameras, the X70 Pro+ has a 50MP, f/1.57 main camera, based on the Samsung GN1 sensor, a 48MP, ultrawide Sony IMX598 camera, with 4-axis gimbal OIS, a 12MP portrait camera and an 8MP periscope zoom camera, with OIS (likely 5x). Other alleged features include dual SIM support, dual-band GPS and Android 11 with Funtouch OS 11.1 on top.
The vanilla vivo X70 and X70 Pro are both expected to have the same 6.56-inch, FullHD+ (2376 x 1080-pixel), HDR10+, 120HZ AMOLED display, with an in-display fingerprint reader. Both also get the same 32MP selfie, also shared by the Pro+ model and both can charge at up to 44W. Both should also be available with 265GB of UFS 3.1 storage and either 8GB or 12GB of RAM. Apparently, they will boot Android 11, with vivo’s new Origin OS 1.0 on top, instead of Funtouch. That about covers the similarities.
The X70 Pro has a 4450 mAh battery, inside a 158.30 x 73.21 x 7.99mm, 185g body. It also packs an Exynos 1080 chipset and its main camera setup consists of a 50MP, Samsung GN1 main snapper, with OIS, a 12MP ultrawide camera, with a macro mode, a 12MP portrait camera and an 8MP periscope.
The vanilla X70 has a slightly smaller 4,400 mAh battery and a 160.10×75.39×7.55mm, 181g body. In a weird twist, it is said to be available with either an Exynos 1080 chipset of a MediaTek Dimensity 1200. An odd decision which might even make the X70 family rather unique for offering chip options from three different, major competitors in the same line. For cameras, the X70 has a 48MP, Sony IMX776, OIS-enabled main snapper, a 12MP ultrawide, with macro and a 12MP portrait camera. Essentially, just skipping the Pro’s periscope.
The X70 family is shaping up as quite an impressive one. Plus, even after all of the extensive leaks, we still have at least a couple of interesting bits to look forward to, like the ZEISS T* lenses, apparently present on all three phones, as well as vivo’s own custom V1 ISP chip, that promises interesting features for the camera viewfinder, as well as video capture.
