Technology industry tipster Yogesh Brar has indicated that vivo’s next-generation flagship smartphone is set to launch later this year. This comes on the heels of news that the Chinese electronics firm had cancelled the launch of the X80 Pro+ in 2022, and sources claim that the new model will have a different name. According to Brar, the vivo X80 Pro+ 5G is tentatively scheduled to launch in October 2022, which is subject to change depending on global supply chains.
The tipster also confirmed that this smartphone adopts a Qualcomm 8+ Gen 1 chip. This flagship chip is based on 4nm technology. It improves CPU and GPU by 10% compared with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, and reduces power consumption by up to 30%.
There is no other detailed information except the processor. But considering it is a new vivo flagship, the phone is expected to come with a Zeiss co-branded imaging system and a micro cloud stage design. According to some previous reports, the phone will feature a 50MP + 48MP (IMX598) + 50MP (JN1) + 50MP (JN2) quad camera.
In addition, the phone may be equipped with a 6.8-inch 2K AMOLED display panel, supporting 120Hz refresh rate and 120W fast charging.
