Vivo’s first top of the range? It’s to conquer Portugal Leak

If you don’t know the brand very well Livingdon’t worry, this is completely normal.

After all, the Chinese giant only arrived in Portugal very recently, and in fact still does not have a top of the range, really worthy of the name, to set foot on its big rivals, such as Xiaomi, Samsung, Oppo, and in a way, also Huawei. But that will change with the Vivo X80 Pro! A smartphone full of simply brutal features, which promises to revolutionize the world of high-end mobile phones, in the field of photography.

X80 Pro: Vivo’s first serious top of the range, wants to conquer Portugal

So despite the fact that the X80 Pro isn’t quite the company’s first high-end, and in fact it’s not even the first device in the “X” line, it’s undeniably the first device capable of competing with the most well-known names in the world. Android world.

In other words, it is a smartphone that will have to compete with Samsung’s Galaxy S22 Ultra, the Xiaomi 12 Pro, and of course, the Oppo Find X5 Pro, the latter, curiously, from a brand that also belongs to the BBK conglomerate Electronics – (In which Vivo is also included)

That said, in the world of smartphones, it’s not enough to have a good product, you have to do much more than that! Something Vivo knows better than anyone, and that’s why it’s entering Europe through the front door! In a very curious way, taking advantage of the love that Europeans have for the world of Football.

After all, in addition to the sponsors of the Champions League, and several extremely well-known championships on the Old Continent, the Chinese giant has also entered into a partnership with FIFA, to be one of the main sponsors of the 2022 World Cup. .

Vivo is here to win, and of course the X80 Pro is an integral part of their strategy!

In fact, you could even say that the X80 Pro is one of the most important parts of what the company does. Ultimately, as you may have noticed, if the X80 Pro fails to make a statement, much of what has been done is essentially thrown away.

But… At the right price, this could be a very interesting device for consumers, and of course, a thorn in the side of Samsung, and other big brands in the Android world.

Let’s take a closer look at the smartphone itself. After all, what is the X80 Pro worth?

First of all, as we said above, the X80 Pro is a top of the range in its own right!

Ultimately, it has a 6.78-inch AMOLED LTPO display capable of going to 120Hz, Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen1 SoC, 12GB LPDDR5 RAM, 256GB UFS storage capacity 3.1, a 4700 mAh battery with support for 80W fast charging with cable and 50W without cable, and of course, the stars of the party, in the form of a camera module that promises to bring its lot of good things to the Android ecosystem, and even a fingerprint sensor quite different from the usual, presenting a significantly larger authentication area.

What will it look like, all together in the same package? It is necessary to wait for the detailed examination. But one thing is certain… In the field of performance, the thing promises!

First Impressions – Appearance, Presentation and Build Quality

At first glance, in addition to being beautiful and having all the details that we have always praised and will continue to praise in a high-end smartphone, as well as the glass and aluminum construction, as well as the presence of a curved screen with extremely reduced. The Vivo X80 Pro is also a smartphone that stands out, due to the great care that the development team has taken in its design! This even taking into account a camera module that at first glance seems strange, but very quickly, in the manner of Coca-Cola, first strange, but then rooted.

A rear module, which in addition to fulfilling its mission in the field of design, also promises to make a difference, with great help from the partnership with Zeiss, in the field of image capture.

But, here we are, we will talk more about it when we have the device in our hands, and we will have the opportunity to take the first photos.

Different fingerprint sensor?

This is one of Vivo’s key areas to differentiate the X80 Pro from anything on the market. Here we have the latest ultrasonic sensor from Qualcomm which, in addition to promising improvements in terms of reliability and speed, bets on a significantly wider field of authentication.

In the end, compared to what can be found in Samsung’s S22 Ultra, this sensor is 4x larger, with dimensions of 20*30mm. In other words, on the X80 Pro, you don’t have to watch where you put your finger. The area is large enough to almost guarantee that as long as your finger is at the bottom of the screen, it’s above the sensor. In fact, the sensor is so large, and so responsive, that you can even program a few shortcuts, depending on how many keystrokes you make in that space.


In my opinion, in this launch, Vivo does everything, or almost, well. My only question is the price. After all, a device over 1000 €, based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen1 SoC, at this stage of the championship, may make little sense, when we already have the S22 Ultra, the Xiaomi 12 Pro and the Find X5 Pro making almost 6 months of market on the national territory. Especially since Vivo is still a little-known brand in our market.

But… The manufacturer may be able to make the difference, with its camera system, its software, and bet on a fingerprint sensor quite different from what is usual.

Besides, what do you think of all this? Do you find the Vivo X80 Pro interesting? Or just more of the same?
