Photography Redefined Through Global Partnership with ZEISS
The first vivo smartphone to be co-engineered with the iconic brand, the X60 series 5G integrates the user-oriented innovation of vivo and the outstanding expertise in mobile imaging of ZEISS to culminate in outstanding software and hardware capabilities. The combined best-in-class optical lenses, sensors, image processing algorithms and diverse multi-modal features allow users to enjoy camera technologies that were previously only limited to professional photographers.
“vivo is excited to give consumers the best mobile photography experience by leveraging the capabilities of ZEISS, a legend in the world of optics for 175 years,” said Spark Ni, Senior Vice President and CMO of vivo. “Smartphones have become an extension of the consumer’s lifestyle to record and capture the joy-inspired moments of their lives, causing mobile photography to become a critical part of user experience. We have collaborated with ZEISS to bring unparalleled sharpness, clarity and image quality to vivo smartphones.”
Key to the X60 series 5G’ top-notch photography capabilities lie in its groundbreaking vivo ZEISS co-engineered imaging system, resulting in uncompromisable and powerful performance. The X60 Pro 5G model has three rear cameras (48MP + 13MP + 13MP), as well as a 32MP front camera. The ZEISS logo has been emblazoned on the lens, while the ZEISS Vario-Tessar trademark is engraved beneath the cameras, fitting for the professional photography flagship device that is sure to turn heads.
For the first time, users can also access ZEISS Biotar Portrait Style on the vivo X series. This new feature allows users to create customised professional portraits, with an unprecedented ability to render center sharpness and unique swirly harmonious bokeh.
Bringing Advanced Imaging Features to Users
vivo has refined its existing imaging technologies to be implemented in the X60 Pro 5G, starting with Gimbal Stabilization 2.0. With the latest Gimbal Camera System and creatively utilised Pixel Shift Ultra HD Imaging technology, the X60 Pro 5G camera system supplements enhancement of image details and sharpness after eight pictures are taken in parallel to help users get ultra-HD images. The X60 Pro 5G also utilises VIS 5-axis video stabilization technology, allowing users to obtain clear shots of objects in dynamic motion with greater accuracy. Additionally, Extreme Night Vision 2.0 helps users to recreate the million shades of night with a single tap, capturing the impressive expanse of the night through vivo’s innovative AI noise reduction algorithm.
The X60 series 5G is home to a diverse set of multi-modal photography and videography features that are hallmarks of vivo technology. Through the Cinematic Master feature, great cinematic footage can be filmed on a 2.35:1 widescreen aspect ratio with clever audio zoom and direction sound input. Depending on their situational needs, users may also choose between HDR Super Night Portrait, Ultra-Wide Night Mode, Super Pano, Pro Sports Mode, Kids Snapshot, Multi-Style Portrait and Long-Exposure Mode, amongst many others.
Optimal Power and Flagship Performance
The vivo X60 series 5G harnesses power, connectivity and speed that can satisfy contemporary high-end smartphone users, who demand exceptional device performance. The vivo X60 series 5G sports the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor that promises smoother daily user experiences. With a substantial boost in CPU and GPU performance, these energy efficient processors contain integrated 5G basebands that can make the user’s 5G wireless network lightning fast with minimal latency. To accelerate the speed of its flagship processor, the X60 series also comes with UFS 3.1 ultrafast flash memory to meet consumers’ need for running and storage in most scenarios.
Optimising users’ sensory experience, the vivo X60 series 5G features a 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz response rate running on an edge-to-edge AMOLED display. The industry leading 120Hz refresh rate allows for effortless scrolling and viewing, while the 240Hz response rate induces an ultra-responsive touch screen to optimise user performance in gaming or occupational capacities. Additionally, the X60 series 5G has been awarded with certifications including HDR10+, SGS Eye Care Display, SGS Seamless and Hi-Res Audio; consumers can look forward to vivid clarity with stunning displays, leading to rich and immersive visuals that won’t strain the eyes after long periods of usage.
Ultra-Thin Design with Premium Aesthetics
Notwithstanding the multitude of powerful features and cutting-edge capabilities of the X60 series 5G, vivo has managed to encapsulate all of this technology into slim constructs and lightweight shells. Both X60 Pro 5G and X60 5G are complete with a stunning 6.56-inch flexible Ultra O Screen containing a 3.96mm front camera punch hole centered at the top with ultra-narrow bezels. Exuding elegant 3D curvature with futuristic aesthetics, the X60 series 5G has carried on the elegance of the X50 with super slender curves and a sleek silhouette. The contours are more captivating than ever and adorned with a choker – a beautiful band that runs along the top edge to complete a picture of grace with sophisticated touch and feel.
The rear cameras are encased within the vivo X60 series 5G’ New Dual-Tone Step, an ingenious layered design that refrains from an otherwise bulky look. Fashioned in thin cascading panels that rise in subtle steps, the Dual-Tone Step integrates all of the professional-grade imaging technologies and photography features co-engineered with ZEISS.
As slim as 7.36mm and weighing from 176g, the latest models are available in Shimmer Blue or Midnight Black. With Shimmer Blue, users can experience the visual radiance and feel the eternal hope of a sunrise, comprised of soft blue and purple hues that peek through the morning mist. Midnight Black is a powerful colorway that envelopes consumers in the tranquil summer night sky, allowing them to feel the fervor and passion hidden within – the energy of life.
