Vivo launches X90 globally for mobile photography

Published on


Following their first release in China in November 2002, the Vivo X90 series flagship smartphones have now gone global. The X90 Pro contains a Sony 1-inch-type sensor and Zeiss lenses, with a strong emphasis on photography.

“The new X90 series combines our in-house innovation with some of the industry’s premier imaging technology to deliver consumers a smartphone portfolio capable of tackling some of the most difficult conditions, such as night photography and videography,” said Spark Ni, the company’s CEO.

The X90 Pro’s triple camera array around the back is designed to impress, with a 50-MP main camera built around an IMX989 1-inch-type sensor for capturing more light and detail through Zeiss glass with an F1.75 aperture, with Vivo claiming that the photosensitive area has increased by 77% and light intake has increased by 43% compared to the sensor used in the previous generation of X phones.

Those looking for additional information in low-light situations can use 4-in-1 binning to increase pixel size to 3.2-m, and optical image stabilisation is available for smoother run-and-gun shooting.

Other members of the camera family include a 50-MP F1.6 telephoto with an IMX758 sensor and optical image stabilisation, as well as a 12-MP F2.0 ultra-wide with a 108-degree field of view that feeds light to an IMX663 sensor.

For improved colour accuracy, Zeiss Natural Color 2.0 is included, and users can change onscreen colour rendition in settings for optimal display when sharing photos to pals. A motion-detection algorithm and a fast shutter release work together to create a Zero-Shutter-Lag Motion Snapshot function that “frozen frames” moving subjects.

An AI-powered Night View can process HDR tones with a colour depth of up to 22 bits and capture up to 10 RAW frames. A handheld Astro mode is featured for photographing starry nights “with higher clarity without the need for a tripod,” while a Super Moon mode allows for landscape Moon images.

The 6.78-inch 2,800 x 1,260 AMOLED display houses a 32-megapixel selfie camera. That display has 452 ppi, a refresh rate of 120 Hz, a peak brightness of 1,300 nits, and support for 100% of the DCI-P3 colour gamut.

Inside, the Pro is powered by MediaTek’s premier Dimensity 9200 mobile platform, which features octa-core CPU and power-optimized graphics. This operates in a dual-chip format with Vivo’s V2 chip, which includes an image processing subsystem, an AI accelerator, and on-chip memory. Up to 12 GB of LPDDR5X RAM and 256 GB of storage are available for the system.

Other features include Bluetooth 5.3 and Wi-Fi 6, as well as 5G connection, Vivo’s Funtouch OS 13 (based on Android 13), and a 4,700-mAh battery with support for 120-W wired fast charging and 50-W wireless charging. An “extremely big vapour chamber” aids in keeping the device cool during intense mobile gaming. The phone also has a dual SIM arrangement, one of which is an eSIM for increased convenience.

The X90 model is similar to the Pro in many ways, but the 50-MP main module around the back is based on an IMX866VCS sensor, while the 12-MP portrait and 12-MP ultra-wide cameras are both based on IMX663 sensors. This model also has a slightly smaller battery, with a capacity of 4,690 mAh.

Vivo hasn’t revealed where people outside of China will be able to buy the new flagships, but we’ve found them listed on the company’s Malaysia webstore for RM 3,699 for the X90 and RM 4,999 for the Pro (which converts to about US$870 and $1,175 respectively – though there’s little chance of an official release in the US).
