Vivo recently launched the X70 series in India and other markets. The X70 series in India comprises the X70 Pro and the X70 Pro Plus. Vivo ditched launching the base X70 in India. It has been around three months since the company launched its premium smartphone series in India. However, it looks like the next flagship from Vivo is around the corner. According to a new leak, the X80 series launch is imminent. Vivo is working on launching the X80 series during the first quarter of 2022. Let’s take a look at more details around the Vivo X80 series India launch timeline.
Vivo X80 series India launch timeline
The Vivo X80 series could debut sooner than expected. According to a new report from 91Mobiles, the next Vivo flagships could launch by late January or early February. The report further states that the company plans to launch only two smartphones in India. These include the Vivo X80 Pro and X80 Pro+. Much like the X70 series, the company does not intend to launch the X80 in India, according to the report.
If true, then the Vivo flagship smartphones would launch in India just around the same time when OnePlus is rumoured to launch the OnePlus 10 series. Both these flagship series will compete against the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S22 series, which is rumoured to debut globally on February 8 at the Galaxy Unpacked 2022.
Unfortunately, there is nothing known about the two Vivo X-series flagship smartphones. We can expect the devices to continue featuring Zeiss-tuned camera systems. The devices will also feature Vivo’s Gimbal-stabilisation for stable photo and video capturing. On top of this, we can expect the phone to feature a Snapdragon 898, aka Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, or Dimensity 2000 SoC.
The base model, which is unlikely to launch in India, is said to feature a MediaTek Dimensity 2000, a 120Hz Full HD+ display and Android 11 OS. The phone is also said to come with a 50MP primary camera with a sensor size of 1/1.3 with 5-axis stabilisation. Accompanying the main sensor would be a 12MP telephoto lens with 2x zoom. There is no word on the sensor of the ultrawide camera at the moment. We can expect more details to surface online in the coming weeks.
