- Vivo X60 global launch date is March 22nd, according to Vivo Malaysia’s official website
- The global Vivo X60 and Vivo X60 Pro variants will run Snapdragon 870 chipset instead of the Exynos 1080
- Vivo will launch the Vivo X60, Vivo X60 Pro, and Vivo X50 Pro+ in India
Vivo India’s Nipun Marya confirmed that the Vivo X60 India launch date was set for sometime in late March 2021. We now know that the phone will be released globally on March 22nd, thanks to a teaser posted by Vivo Malaysia’s official website. However, it is unlikely to be the Vivo X60 series India release date as well. We recently learned that Vivo could launch the Vivo X50 Pro+ alongside the Vivo X60 and Vivo X60 Pro in India. Therefore, a dedicated Vivo X60 India launch event would make more sense, unless Vivo plans on launching the Vivo X50 Pro+ globally as well.
The teaser also sheds light on one key Vivo X60 specification that we all took for granted. It turns out that the global Vivo X60 and Vivo X60 Pro will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chipset instead of the Exynos 1080. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing, though. While both chips are more or less identical when it comes to performance, Qualcomm’s offering has a slightly better feature set. On the other hand, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888-powered Vivo X60 Pro+ could remain exclusive to China for a little more time.
Both the Vivo X60 and Vivo X60 Pro come with a 6.56-inch FHD+ AMOLED display clocked at 120Hz, HDR 10+ support, and a hole-punch camera cutout. Storage and memory configurations max out at 12GB and 256GB, respectively. Similarly, both phones feature the same 48MP primary sensor, 13MP ultra-wide lens, and a 13MP telephoto unit. The Vivo X60 Pro has an additional periscope lens on top of that. The Vivo X60 has a 4,300mAh battery as compared to the 4,200mAh cell on the Pro variant. Both cells support fast charging at 33W.
