This week’s global launch for the Vivo X70 and X70 Pro+

by - – On Thursday 9 September, Vivo will announce its next flagship phones in China, with a global launch the day after. The Vivo X70 and X70 Pro+ handsets were leaked several times, including TENAA lists showing renders and specifications.

The website of Vivo now has a serial holding page that provides a few pictures and a countdown period to see when this is ready. It is probably the day on sale because on Monday 14 September 2021, it indicates 1 p.m. BST.

The website concentrates very much on the camera and the collaboration of the firm with Zeiss, a pun completely intended. Zeiss T* lens coating technology will be used to minimize glare and ghosting.

The camera also has gimbal tech for shaking reduction. And the telephone itself “is small yet touch-sensory.”

The official web sites are not very well described, however a listing previously published with regular Chinese communication – the TENAA – shows that one device (probably the X70) runs on a 2.8GHz Exynos 1080 CPU and another (X70 Pro+) has a medium size of 3.0GHz 1200.

Both model types are supposed to include 1080 x 2376 pixel AMOLED panels and fingerprint sensors in the display.. They both have a battery of 4,320mAh and allow 44W quick charge.

Their rear cameras are three-lens combinations of 40 megapixels and two-fold of 12 megapixels. The front is supposed to be a 20-megapixel snapper.

We’re very soon going to find out more.
