Vivo has announced the Vivo X80 series in China and this time around there are only two phones called the Vivo X80 and the Vivo X80 Pro. The Pro model gets the privilege of both Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and MediaTek Dimensity 9000 chipsets. Meanwhile, the regular Vivo X80 sticks to just the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 silicon. The Vivo X80 Pro also enjoys a variable refresh rate of up to 120Hz thanks to the LTPO2 panel. The standard X80 can hit 120Hz but it is not adaptive in nature. The main 50MP camera on the Vivo X80 is a Sony IMX866 sensor whereas the Pro variant gets a Samsung GNV sensor. The Pro-tag also gets you a slightly bigger battery with 50W wireless fast charging and 10W wireless reverse charging besides the 80W fast wired charging present on both models.
