Announcement. Vivo X90 and Vivo X90 Pro are invigorating mid-range smartphones

Vivo launched its flagship X90 series of smartphones in China today.
Vivo X90,
Vivo X90 Pro and
Vivo X90 Pro+.

This news is about two junior devices. You can read about the older one, about the Vivo X90 Pro + separately - here.

The debut of the MediaTek Dimensity 9200 chipset.The most powerful of the modern MediaTeks, we are waiting for more than a million points in AnTuTu. (Interestingly, in the X90 Pro + we also have a chipset debut, but a different one. They put Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 there).

Memory.8 or 12 GB of RAM for both devices (LPDDR5/LPDDR5x). Permanent memory - from 128 to 512 GB for X90 and from 256 to 512 GB for X90 Pro (UFS3.1 for the younger version of X90 and UFS4.0 for all other versions). There is no support for memory cards.

The screens appear to be identical.6.78″ (111 cm²) AMOLED matrices with a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz. And the resolution is tall - 1260 × 2800 (453 ppi). (The X90 Pro+ has the same screen size but is more modern and has an even higher resolution.)

Batteries are close, but still slightly different.4810 mAh for Vivo X90 and 4870 mAh for Vivo X90 Pro. Wired charging is obscenely fast at 120W (interestingly, the top-end X90 Pro + is somewhat slower). The younger device Vivo X90 is deprived of wireless charging.

The front cameras of all three smartphones in the series have a resolution of 32 MP. I suspect that they are generally identical (but this is inaccurate).

With the rear cameras, everything is, of course, a little more complicated. Let's start with the Vivo X90 Pro. Here we have cameras with a resolution of 50 + 50 + 12 MP.

  • 50 MP - main camera. Same inch Sony IMX989 sensor as the X90 Pro+. And also with optical stabilization, of course.
  • 50 MP - telephoto portrait, also with OIS. And also the same as the Pro +. Those. incomprehensible brand new Sony IMX758 sensor.
  • 12 MP - a simple wide-angle camera without stabilization. Sony IMX663 sensor.

The younger smartphone Vivo X90 has the same set of cameras, but the set is simpler. 50+12+12 MP.

  • 50 MP - the main camera with a simpler and smaller Sony IMX866 sensor. But OIS is available.
  • 12 MP - portrait telephoto on the Sony IMX663 sensor, i.e. also simpler than that of the “firmware”.
  • 12 MP - no change here, also Sony IMX663.

Other. There is support for 5G networks, there is a sixth Wi-Fi, Type-C, an IR blaster, an NFC module. No support for LTE Band 20.
