Vivo X80 series launch in India has been confirmed for May 18. The series boots two models, for now, the Vivo X80 Pro and Vivo X80. A third model, called the Vivo X80 Pro Plus, is coming later. Both X80 Pro and X80 were launched initially in China, followed by global launch recently. The “pro” X80 in China comes in two variants, one with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and another with MediaTek’s Dimensity 9000 chip. Globally, though, Vivo is launching the phone with flagship Qualcomm chip, alone, and we’re expecting the same from the X80 Pro headed to India. The standard Vivo X80 is powered by the Dimensity 9000.

Vivo X80 Pro specs, features
The X80 Pro comes with a 6.78-inch 2K E5 LTPO2 AMOLED display with up to 120Hz refresh rate and hole punch cut-out at the centre. This houses a 32MP selfie camera. Biometrics are handled by an ultrasonic fingerprint reader.
The phone has four cameras on the back— a 50MP primary Samsung ISOCELL GNV sensor behind an optically stabilised lens with f/1.57 aperture, a 12MP Sony IMX663 sensor behind a gimbal-stabilised 2x telephoto lens with f/1.85 aperture, another 8MP sensor behind an optically stabilised 5x periscope telephoto lens with f/3.4 aperture, and a 48MP Sony IMX598 sensor behind an f/2.2 ultrawide lens. All the cameras benefit from Zeiss T* lens coating, thanks to Vivo’s continuing partnership with the German lens maker.
