vivo announces the global launch of flagship X80 series and collaboration with ZEISS

Smartphone manufacturer vivo has announced the global launch of the flagship X80 series, which it said brings users to the next level of premium mobile experience with new cinematic photography features in collaboration with ZEISS. 

Building on vivo X series’ professional mobile photography foundations, X80 series, featuring X80 and X80 Pro, continues to demonstrate the relentless pursuit of the perfect user experience in photography and videography with the smartphones’ cinematic mode, flagship performance, and technological innovations.

Spark Ni, Senior Vice President and CMO of vivo, said: “X80 series demonstrates vivo’s constant pursuit of user-oriented innovation and premium mobile imaging technology. 

“In successive collaboration with ZEISS, a global leader in optics and opto-electronics, we are once again delivering excellent experiences to users who can capture memories and create quality photographs and videos with more dynamics and perspectives.”

X80 Pro has a 32-megapixel front camera and a rear four-camera system consisting of a 50-megapixel ultra-sensing camera with GNV sensor and optical image stabilisation (OIS), a 48-megapixel wide-angle camera, a 12-megapixel gimbal portrait camera, and an 8-megapixel periscope camera. 

The X80 model has a 32-megapixel front camera and a rear camera system consisting of a 50-megapixel ultra-sensing main camera, a 12-megapixel portrait camera, a new 12-megapixel wide-angle camera. The X80 model also features a new ultra-sensing IMX866 sensor that improves the camera performance in dark and low-light scenarios.

The X80 Pro includes an AI Video Enhancement feature that allows the device to automatically identify the right mode for the light conditions, prompting users to choose between video HDR and night mode depending on the scenario. The vivo V1+ chip enhances the X80 series visual experience in display and gaming.

Camera Panning is a new and exclusive feature that uses portrait motion tracking technology, which can reduce motion blur caused by shaky hands. In addition, the Night Sports Mode in the X80 Pro allows users to capture clearer photos even during extreme scenarios with its improved motion detection abilities.

vivo says the new X80 series has significant battery upgrades that can accommodate the lifestyles of users. The entire series supports 80W FlashCharge, while X80 Pro also supports 50W wireless FlashCharge with a 4700 mAh large battery, and the X80 has a 4500 mAh large battery. 

With such a sizeable battery, vivo said X80 Pro can get a full charge in just 35 minutes compared to its predecessor, the X70 Pro+, in 56 minutes; X80 can also be fully recharged in 35 minutes.

For gaming, X80 series introduces new upgrades so that users can enjoy immersive gaming experiences.

X80 series is equipped with a large X-Axis Linear Motor, supported by vivo’s self-developed vibration algorithm that enables quiet but powerful scene-based vibration. X80 Pro’s response speed, referring to the start-stop time, has increased by 20% while X80’s response speed has increased by 41.2% with more vivid vibration for enjoyable gaming.

The Dual Stereo Speaker in both models provides a Dual Stereo Speaker balanced with powerful bass to improve the overall sound effect, bringing dual speakers to X series for the first time.

The X80 device, in conjunction with the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 platform, offers a solution to tackle the issue of shortened battery life and unstable frame rate under heavy load games — the AI Gaming Super Resolution. 

This feature can compress heavy load gaming resolution as a way to reduce the CPU and GPU workload, then re-upload the compressed images through the AI Gaming Super Resolution. This cutting-edge feature has been tested to reduce battery consumption by 10%.

X80 series is available in two colours: cosmic black and urban blue. The X80 Pro model only comes in cosmic black, and the X80 model comes in both colours.

Key selling points (both models):

  • Collaboration with ZEISS
  • AI Gaming Super Resolution
  • Support 80W FlashCharge
