The Vivo X90 series is shaping up to be one equipped with extremely high-performance hardware, if the unofficial information so far holds true. The Chinese manufacturer is reportedly planning to launch the Vivo X90 Pro+ and Vivo X90 “standard” models before the end of this year, equipped with the two most powerful processors that will be available at launch: the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and the MediaTek Dimensity 9200.
X90, Vivo’s next flagship series will adopt the latest high-end processors on the market
According to Digital Chat Station, a leaker known for the information it publishes on its Weibo account, the Vivo X90 won’t be far behind the Pro+ in terms of hardware specs. The phone will be equipped with the Dimensity 9200 chipset, which appears to be significantly more powerful than last year’s model. The phone will use an OOLED display with “1.5K” resolution, which suggests it will be above Full HD but below QHD, similar to iPhones or Huawei flagship phones. This screen will also house a fingerprint sensor.
The Vivo X90 will also feature 120W charging for its 4,700 mAh battery and will be Vivo’s first non-Pro model to offer water and dust resistance. However, these will not be to the IP68 standard. Presumably it’s more likely to be splash water resistance, as we’ve been seeing on cheaper phones lately.
In comparison, the Vivo X90 Pro+ will use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, a QHD display, larger 5,000 mAh battery, and more advanced components like LPDDR5x memory and UFS 4.0 storage.
With the Vivo X90 series expected to launch in December and the two processors officially announced in November, there’s a good chance they’ll hit the market before the end of the year. However, vivo usually keeps its new flagships exclusive to China before bringing them to European markets.
