Vivo has launched a new smartphone in China, called the Vivo X Note. It sports a huge 7-inch screen on the front and is powered by Qualcomm’s top-of-the-line chipset, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. In this article, we will walk you through the specs, features, availability, and expected price of the Vivo X Note in Nepal.
Vivo X Note Overview:
Design and Display
As aforementioned, the X Note flaunts a 7-inch E5 AMOLED panel with a 21:10 aspect ratio. Yet, the phone is fairly slim at 8.37mm and weighs around 220 grams. However, the actual weight differs for the different color options. It’s also IP68 rated for water and dust resistance and has a Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protection on the front.
Likewise, it’s an QHD+ (3080 x 1440 pixels) resolution screen with DisplayMate A+ certification and a 120Hz refresh rate. The refresh rate is backed by LTPO 3.0 technology, which allows it to alter the refresh rate between 1 Hz and 120 Hz depending on the content.
Furthermore, the smartphone features a glass sandwich design. But Vivo has carved faux stitch marks and created a rough surface on the rear to give it a leather-like feel. A left-to-right elongated camera island with the Zeiss logo is also included.

Under the hood, the X Note is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor while the company has also used a self-developed V1 chip to achieve professional image quality enhancement, share GPU load, and optimize power consumption.
To keep the temperature in check, it has a large 47132mm² vapor chamber area and three-dimensional heat dissipation structure composed of a vacuum chamber soaking plate, PGS graphite thermal conductive sheet, and thermal conductive gel.
Moreover, Vivo is the first to utilize Qualcomm’s SPU (Secure Processing Unit) to deliver chip-level security protection for account passwords, financial activities, and such.
Talking about security, the Vivo X Note has an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor with a large fingerprint sensing region, making it simple to unlock the phone. Interestingly, you can also choose a two-finger biometric option to complete the transaction during payment verification. In terms of memory, it is available with 8/12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256/512GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
As for the optics, the back has a quad-camera array headlined by a 50MP Samsung GN 1 sensor with optical image stabilization (OIS). This is accompanied by a 48MP ultra-wide lens, a 12MP portrait sensor, and an 8MP periscope telephoto lens with OIS. The latter features a 5x optical zoom range and a digital zoom capability of 60x.
The aforementioned Vivo V1 chip also aids in image optimization and has the capability to run face detection even while shooting a gathering of 30 people. On the front, it has an 8MP lens for selfies.
