Vivo launched its latest flagship series, the X60 with Zeiss-powered cameras today. The company launched three phones under the moniker: the X60, the X60 Pro, and the X60 Pro+ (it’s a tongue twister).

All the phones have similar screens and designs, except that the top-tier Pro+ sports a vegan leather back. While rear camera configurations differ in each model, the front camera remains the same. Let’s take a look at their detailed specifications.

The X60 Pro+

  • Screen: 6.56-inch FHD+ AMOLED display
  • Refresh rate: 120Hz
  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 888
  • RAM: 12GB
  • Rear camera: 50-megapixel main sensor with f/1.6 aperture (1/1.31-inch) + 48-megapixel ultrawide sensor with f/2.2 aperture and gimbal stabilization + 8-megapixel telephoto sensor f/3.4 (5x optical zoom) + 32-megapixel portrait senor with f/2.08 aperture
  • Front camera: 32-megapixel with f/2.5 aperture
  • Internal storage: 256GB UFS 3.1 (for faster read and write speeds to open apps and access content quickly)
  • Security: In-screen fingerprint sensor; face unlock
  • Battery: 4,200 mAh
  • Charging: 55W wired flash charge
  • Software: Funtouch OS 11.1 based on Android 11

The X60 Pro cuts down on the processor with Snapdragon 870 and it supports 33W fast charging, instead of 55W. In terms of camera, the gimbal support is on the primary 48-megapixel camera, but there’s not dedicated telephoto sensor.

The X60 Pro

  • Screen: 6.56-inch FHD+ AMOLED display
  • Refresh rate: 120Hz
  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 870
  • RAM: 12GB
  • Rear camera: 48-megapixel main sensor with f/1.5 aperture and gimbal stablization+ 13-megapixel ultrawide sensor with f/2.5 aperture  + 13-megapixel portrait sensor (2x optical zoom)

  • Security: In-screen fingerprint sensor; face unlock
  • Battery: 4,200 mAh
  • Charging: 33W wired flash charge
  • Software: Funtouch OS 11.1 based on Android 11

The base version has almost the same specs as the pro, but it uses an inferior 48-megapixel sensor. Plus, it has a flat-screen instead of a curved one on the pro. In terms of battery, it gains a measly 100mAh over two other models.
