Vivo is yet to confirm the launch date for the global markets officially. Meanwhile, a new leak has revealed the global launch date of the X90 series.

Tipster Paras Guglani has uploaded the retail box images of the X90 series and claimed that the phones will be up for pre-order from January 27. The company will launch the phones in various markets on February 3. Vivo is yet to confirm if the phones are coming to India on the same date.
