After a stretched period of leaks and teasers, Vivo's flagship family officially welcomed the successive X90 series in China yesterday. Three new models, dubbed Vivo X90, X90 Pro, and the Vivo X90 Pro Plus, have been introduced. All of them are on the bleeding verge of technology.

It's customary for Vivo to pour all their love into making X-series phones. The same goes for the X90 series too. The latest models pack absolute high-class hardware and brand-new technologies, which will become the new standard for 2023 flagships. Let's dive in to see what new X Vivos pack inside.

Vivo X90

Base X90's outlook aligns perfectly with the Pro models — a giant glass disc on top and a metallic glossed line horizontally cutting the backplate in two halves. The accented line has 'Xtreme Imagination.' engraved on it. The phone ships in three finishes; two are standard black and blue, and the third is leather-styled red. 

Flip the phone around to find a punch-hole curved OLED display measuring 6.78 inches with a 2800 x 1260 resolution, 452 PPI, and 120Hz refresh rate. It supports the modern-day 2160Hz PWM dimming and a 100% DCI-P3 color gamut. It boots to Android 13 OS and carries dual-stereo speakers, IP64 rating, linear haptics, plus a triple camera configuration; 50MP (prime), 12MP (ultra-wide), and 12MP (telephoto).

X90 sports a powerful octa-core CPU, MTK Dimensity 9200, teamed with LPDDR5 RAM, UFS 4.0 storage, and a Vivo V2 ISP chip. It runs on a 120W-rated 4810mAh battery. The phone has 4 RAM/ROM combos ranging from 8+128 to 12+512 Gigs, and the starting price translates to roughly 115k/- PKR (518$).

Vivo X90 Pro and Pro Plus

Both X90 Pro variants have OLED screens spanning 6.78 inches, curved edges, and center-aligned punch holes. The design language is similar to the vanilla model. The standard Pro bears 1080p, while Pro Plus has 2K resolution. A 120Hz refresh, 1300 nits peak brightness, and an in-screen biometric are common on both models.

Collaborating with Zeiss, Vivo brings an extreme set of cameras on both X90 and X90+. The former houses 50MP alpha, 12MP ultra-wide, and a 50MP 2x telephoto sensor. X90 Pro plus, on the other hand, flexes quad-lens setup bearing 50.3MP primary, 64MP periscope telephoto (3.5x zoom), 50MP telephoto (2x optical zoom), and 48MP ultra-wide sensors with Zeiss coating.

Accompanying chipsets are different in both phones. X90 Pro has a Dimensity 9200 chip on board, while Pro+ has Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. Among the standard essentials, users will find up to 12GBs of LPDDR5 RAMs and a max 512GBs of UFS 4.0 storage on both phones.
