Vivo X70 Pro+ Overview:

Let’s start with the elephant in the room. The Pro+ model brings significant improvements in display, camera, and battery over its predecessor.

Design and Display

Let’s start with the display. This time, Vivo has upped the screen size from 6.56-inch to 6.78-inch. Similarly, the display on the X70 Pro+ uses the latest E5 AMOLED display from Samsung.

It’s an LTPO panel that can dynamically switch between 1Hz to 120Hz. The screen boasts a touch sampling rate of 300Hz too. There’s a center-aligned punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera, while the bezels around the screen are quite thin.

At the back, you get a massive camera island along with the “Ceramic cloud Window.” The phone is available in three colors. Depending upon the variant, you get Fluorite AG glass or vegan leather finish.

Performance and Memory

Running the show underneath is the Snapdragon 888+ chipset. The latest processor from Qualcomm brings higher clock speeds compared to the vanilla Snapdragon 888 on the X60.

This time around, the camera processing will be handled independently by Vivo’s own V1 chip. As for memory, there are three configurations to choose from – 8/256GB, 12/256GB, and 12/512GB.

Camera

Vivo X60 Pro+ flaunts a quad-camera setup that hasn’t changed much from the previous generation. Vivo is still using the Samsung ISOCELL GN1 sensor for the primary camera. This particular sensor has been paired with ZEISS ultra-high transmittance glass lens for reduced glare.

It is accompanied by a 48MP ultrawide sensor. Additionally, it also retains the 8MP periscopic lens and a 12MP portrait camera from its predecessor.

All four cameras now come with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). In addition, the ultrawide module also has Vivo’s “gimbal-like stabilization”. Similarly, all four sensors have a ZEISS T* coating for reduced ghosting.

Rest of the specs

Fueling the X70 Pro+ is a 4,500mAh battery. It’s slightly bigger than the 4,200mAh cell on X60 Pro+. The charging speed still caps out at 55W.

Moving on, the phone is IP68-rated against dust and water damage. It ships with Vivo’s OriginOS 1.0 based on Android 11 out-of-the-box. However, it is expected to be replaced with FunTouch OS if the phone gets a global release.
