Vivo X90: Everything you need to know

The six-month gap between Vivo flagship phones is ended, as the firm has announced the Vivo X90, X90 Pro, and X90 Pro+.

The X80 Pro is one of our favorite phones of 2022, but the Chinese conglomerate is already planning a wave of new versions.

Everything you need to know about the Vivo X90 series is right here.

When will the Vivo X90 be released outside China?

Vivo introduced the phones via live webcast in its home country of China on November 22, 2022, and all three are currently available for purchase.

In late December, an official-looking graphic was posted on Twitter, claiming that a worldwide X90 series event will take place on January 31, 2023, albeit it does not specify which phones or countries will be present.

Vivo Malaysia has began promoting the X90 series on its website, raising hopes for a quick international debut. However, no exact release date has been specified, and the manufacturer has confirmed to GSMArena that the X90 Pro+ would not be available in Malaysia, with the Pro serving as the top model instead. What is unclear is if other overseas markets will follow suit.

How much does the Vivo X90 cost?

The Vivo X90 costs ¥3,699 ($520/£430) for the 8GB RAM/128GB version. It also comes in 8GB/256GB, 12GB/256GB & 12GB/512GB versions for ¥3,999 ($560/£470), ¥4,499 ($630/£530) & ¥4,999 ($700/£590) respectively.

The X90 Pro costs $700 (¥4,999/£590) for the 8GB/256GB model. A 12GB/256GB version is ¥5,499 ($670/£650) while a 12GB/512GB version is ¥5,999 ($840/£700).

The X90 Pro+ costs ¥6,499 ($900/£760) for the 12GB RAM/256GB storage version. A 512GB model costs ¥6,999 ($980/£825).

The X80 Pro costs £1,199 in the UK, so if the phones make it here, they will all cost considerably more than the converted prices shown.

What are the Vivo X90’s specs and features?

Vivo has put everything at the X90 series, including three phones with varying specifications and features.

The ordinary X90 contains many of the same fundamental specifications as the X90 Pro, but the Pro adds wireless charging, an enhanced portrait telephoto lens, and a slightly bigger battery.

We thought the X80 Pro was the most phone Vivo could throw at us in 2022, but the X90 Pro+ is a full-fledged flagship that attempts to push the smartphone envelope once again.

The X90 Pro+ goes all-in with IP68 and an amazing quad camera setup that includes a one-inch primary camera sensor akin to the Xiaomi 12S Ultra. It’s also the sole variant using the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor rather than the MediaTek Dimensity 9200.

The 1in primary camera sensor is noteworthy since it is one of the earliest applications of the Sony IMX989 sensor. Vivo has combined it with a glass lens coated with Zeiss T, a glare-reducing compound.

According to Vivo, this 50Mp lens has a 77% bigger photosensitive surface than the 1/1.3in sensor in the X80 Pro. Because of its huge sensor, that phone produced excellent low-light results, so we’re hoping the X90 Pro+ will be available in Europe so we can put it through its paces.

The camera system is also linked with Vivo’s new V2 image signal processor (ISP), which is a tantalizing upgrade option.

With the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, it is also one of the most powerful and competent smartphones on the market. It remains to be seen how Vivo uses it beyond raw processing for the camera, but keep in mind that any release outside of China would most likely see the phone run Vivo’s Funtouch software rather than the OriginOS that it does in its home country.

All of that phone wizardry is powered by an obscenely brilliant 1800 nit 2K AMOLED screen, specifically a Samsung E6 panel. It has 10-bit color accuracy and can refresh at rates ranging from 1Hz to 120Hz owing to LTPO 4.0 technology.

The phone is available in black or a beautiful red leather variant. We truly hope it comes to Europe, but in the meantime, check out our roundup of the finest smartphones available right now to see what the X90 series will be up against.
