Why does this story matter?
Vivo X80 series will be the company's first flagship line-up to go official in 2022. If the report is to be trusted, then the X70 series will receive its successor in India within six months. We can expect the X80 range to first debut in China and then arrive in India to take on rivals like Xiaomi 12 series and Samsung Galaxy S22 range.
There will be an in-screen fingerprint sensor
The Vivo X80 Pro and Pro+ will have a punch-hole design, slim bezels, and an in-display fingerprint reader. They may sport a 6.56-inch Full-HD+ (1080x2400 pixels) AMOLED screen and a 6.78-inch QHD+ (1440x3200 pixels) AMOLED display, respectively, with an aspect ratio of 20:9 and a refresh rate of 120Hz. The latter is also said to get an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance.
A 32MP selfie camera is expected
Vivo X80 Pro will likely offer a 50MP primary shooter, a 12MP ultra-wide sensor, an 8MP periscope lens, and another 12MP camera. The X80 Pro+ will also get a similar arrangement but with a 48MP ultra-wide sensor. The duo shall bear a 32MP front-facing snapper.
The phones will run on Android 12
The Vivo X80 Pro will likely be powered by the upcoming MediaTek Dimensity 2000 chipset and a 4,450mAh battery with 44W fast-charging support. The X80 Pro+ will reportedly draw power from a Snapdragon 888+ processor and a 4,500mAh battery with 66W fast-charging support. Both the handsets should boot Android 12 and support Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, GPS, 5G, NFC, and a Type-C port.
