After tons of leaks and rumors, Vivo has finally pulled the curtains off of its latest Vivo X80 series which includes two devices—the Vivo X80 and X80 Pro. These devices were released as a follow-up to their X70 series counterparts, which were well-received for their cameras. As a result, it’s natural to expect the Vivo X80 series to be camera-focused smartphones. In this article, we will go through the specs, features, availability, and expected price of the Vivo X80 series (Vivo X80, X80 Pro) in Nepal.

Vivo X80, X80 Pro Overview:

Both the smartphones in the series have a curved edge on the front and a flat back panel; and are available in three color options, namely Orange, Black, and Blue.

In terms of display, they come with a 6.78-inch AMOLED panel with support for a 120Hz refresh rate, 1500 nits of brightness, and a P3 color gamut. However, the X80 features a Full HD resolution screen whereas the Pro has a 2K display with 10-bit color depth, ΔE≈0.45 color accuracy, and 1000Hz touch sampling rate. Furthermore, the latter is also an LTPO 3.0 technology, which allows it to alter the refresh rate between 1 Hz and 120 Hz depending on the content.

Performance

Inside, Vivo has packed the flagship MediaTek Dimensity 9000 chip. Nonetheless, the X80 Pro also comes with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor. Memory-wise, both the X80 and X80 Pro are available with up to 12GB of RAM and up to 512GB of internal storage. The company has also included vapor chamber cooling to keep the temperature in check during heavy workloads.

Cameras

In terms of cameras, the X80 Pro features a quad-camera setup led by a 50MP GNV 1G primary sensor that also supports OIS. Accompanying this is a 48MP ultrawide, a 12MP portrait, and an 8MP periscope sensor that brings 5x optical zoom and 60x digital zoom.
