Vivo introduces the successor of the X50 Pro smartphone - the special feature remains the gimbal-stabilized camera in the new flagship model X60 Pro 5G, but the system has been optimized once again. The four-axis stabilization for taking pictures is said to be improved, and a fifth axis is now added for video recordings to also compensate for unintentional rotations of the smartphone.
However, only the main module of the camera trio offers a moving sensor (1/2.0" with 48 MP and f/1.48 optics), while the ultra-wide-angle camera (with 120°) and the portrait module with 2x optical zoom are electronically stabilized when filming. A max of 60fps is available in 4K resolution. The optics are supposed to come from Zeiss, and according to Vivo, the camera system was also developed in cooperation with the optics specialist.
A new AI-based noise reduction algorithm and an aperture of f/1.48 are supposed to contribute to better pictures in low-light conditions (Extreme Night Vision 2.0). For the photo function, it seems that Pixel Shift Ultra HD Imaging Technology is also implemented to improve colors, detail reproduction and zoom sharpness.
The X60 Pro 5G runs on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 870 platform and features a 6.56-inch edge-to-edge flexible AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate, 240Hz response speed and HDR10+ capabilities. Built-in are 12GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage, and the battery has a capacity of 4200 mAh. The smartphone is to be available for 799 Euros (~) starting in June.
