Vivo has finally launched the Vivo X30 and Vivo X30 Pro smartphones in China. Both devices offer almost the same specifications and features, but there are certain key differences that set them apart. Let’s have a look at the prices and specifications of the Vivo X30 and the Vivo X30 Pro 5G smartphones.

Vivo X30 and Vivo X30 Pro: Prices

Starting off with the Vivo X30 Pro, the device is priced at CNY 4,000 for the 8GB/128GB variant and CNY 4,300 for the 8GB/256GB variant. The Vivo X30 Pro will go on sale in China on December 24. The Vivo X30, on the other hand, will take a little longer as it will go on sale on December 28, the same day on which the Oppo Reno 3 series is launching as well. The Vivo X30, on the other hand, will be priced at CNY 3,300 for the 8GB/128GB variant. There is one more memory variant of the Vivo X30 which has 8GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage. That variant, however, will go on sale in the near future. The company has not yet specified any timeframe for the same.

Vivo X30 and Vivo X30 Pro: Specifications and Features

Let’s start with the processor that the Vivo X30 series utilizes. Both the smartphones come equipped with Samsung’s Exynos 980 chipset. The funny thing here is the fact that the Vivo X30 series is the first series to be powered with the Exynos 980 chipset and even Samsung has not used it in any of its smartphones yet. The Exynos 980 SoC comes with 2 Cortex-A77 cores and six A55 cores. More, the processor features an integrated 5G modem that can deliver 3.55Gbps by combining 4G and 5G.

The major difference between the Vivo X30 and the Vivo X30 Pro is the presence of a 5x periscope camera on the Pro variant. The camera can shoot up to 12MP photos at a native focal length of 135mm and up to 60X of digital zoom. Furthermore, the Vivo X30 comes with a Super Moon Mode.

The 60X zoom feature is missing out on the Vivo X30. Moving on, the Vivo X30 series comes with a 50mm portrait camera that has a 32MP sensor and a bright f/2.0 aperture. It is worth noting that the 50mm portrait camera on the Vivo X30 is the only zoom camera it has, so the standard variant’s zooming capabilities are restricted to 2x optical and 20x digital zoom. Sadly, the 60X zoom feature won’t be making its way to the standard Vivo X30. That, however, makes sense owing to the price difference between the two devices. The primary camera, on the other hand, stays to be the same in both the devices – 64MP along with a 26.4mm lens with f/1.8 aperture. Lastly, there is this 8MP 8MP ultrawide lens with both the devices. The 32MP selfie snapper sits right underneath a punch-hole.

Speaking of the punch-hole, the Vivo X30 series comes with a punch-hole display which measures 6.44-inch from one diagonal to the other. The display is a Super AMOLED FHD+ panel (with a resolution of 1,080 x 2,400 pixels) which the company has dubbed to be an “XDR display”. The display, as claimed by the company, should be as visible in direct sunlight as it is indoors as it hits 800 nits of brightness and goes up to a maximum of 1,200 nits local brightness.

Both the Vivo X30 and the Vivo X30 Pro come with a 4,350mAh battery that has support for up to 33W Flash Charge. What’s good to see is that the Vivo X30 series retains a 3.5mm headphone jack. There is, of course, a USB Type-C charging port too.
