The leather-coated X60 Pro+ was Vivo’s most powerful phone until the X70 Pro+ came along, though unfortunately it’s only available in China and India – so buyers elsewhere will have to import.
This is a photography flagship, boasting a camera spec that wouldn’t be out of place in an Ultra-class phone from other brands: a 50Mp main lens, 48Mp gimbal-stabilised ultrawide, 32Mp 2x zoom, and 8Mp 5x periscope. The X70 Pro+ has since pipped it, but not by much – this camera is still stunning.
You get all of that for a lot less than you might elsewhere, but only because Vivo has skipped luxuries like wireless charging, an IP rating, or stereo speakers – though internal specs are top notch, with the Snapdragon 888 at its heart.
Bear in mind that while the Chinese version of the phone runs Vivo’s new Origin OS, the Indian model instead runs the company’s older Funtouch OS software.
