The Vivo X90 Pro+ will be the world’s first smartphone with the all-new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. While the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC will power most of the flagship Android phones launched in 2023, Vivo is beating everyone and releasing it before the new year when it launches the smartphone in China in early December this year.
Looking at the specifications from online sources, we see that the Vivo X90 Pro+ sports a 6.78-inch, 3200×1440, OLED display supporting a 120HZ refresh rate, the device will get up to 12GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage, and a 4700mAh battery with support for an 80W fast charger. mAh battery, and a rare signature of Qualcomm’s super-sized 3D Sonic Max in-display fingerprint sensor. We also get 50W wireless charging.
The cameras are also really big, with Sony’s 1-inch IMX989 sensor, 50MP portrait camera, a 48MP ultrawide, and a 64MP 3.5x telephoto. The cameras are co-developed with Zeiss and seem pretty solid. In fact, Vivo is so confident about the camera on this smartphone, especially that 1-inch Sony sensor, that Vivo is calling it the “king of one-inch sensors”. While the Vivo X90 Pro+ is not the first to come with the Sony IMX989 sensor, Vivo has equipped it with several enhancements that make it special.
Vivo’s suite of software features like horizon correction, lens flare portrait mode, astrophotography mode and 100x hybrid zoom further complement the camera setup. The phone can record 8K videos at 30fps with Dolby Vision and LOG10 support. The company has equipped the phone with its V2 ISP for image processing. It has 45MB of SRAM and provides 16TOPS per watt of performance.
With the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and what it enables, users will get UFS 4.0 storage, a new, faster flash storage standard that can hit read speeds of 4,200MBps and write speeds of 2,800MBps. We can also expect to see Wi-Fi 7 support. However, we don’t know for sure if the Vivo X90 Pro+ gets all the latest bells and whistles of the new SoC.
