The latest arrival onto India’s smartphone scene is the vivo X70 Pro with its Zeiss-certified camera system. The phone has all the qualities needed to be an impressive flagship that will set the market on fire. Prime among them is the incorporation of the MediaTek Dimensity 1200-vivo chipset, which guarantees top-notch performance along with 5G support. But there’s much more to the device than just that. Let’s take a close look at what it brings to the table.
A camera powerhouse
vivo has knocked it out of the park with the camera setup of this phone. It harnesses the full capability of the Dimensity 1200-vivo chipset, which can support a multi-camera setup. The X70 Pro packs a 50MP primary camera and dual 12MP cameras with telephoto and ultra-wide lenses. There’s also an 8MP periscope lens that enables 5X optical zoom along with a 32MP selfie shooter. The camera benefits from Zeiss T* Coating, which helps produce true-to-life colours. It also supports the camera’s Pure Night View feature, which prevents ghosting effects that are caused by stray light in the background. Speaking about night-time photography, the phone comes with a Real-Time Extreme Night Vision mode, which lets you manually adjust the exposure intensity and photo brightness during the preview, along with showing the time required for shooting.
Needless to say that night-time shots come out looking beautiful. Credit for this also goes to the 5-core ISP onboard the MediaTek Dimensity 1200-vivo chipset, which enables 20 percent faster speeds in capturing night-time shots. vivo has worked in tandem with MediaTek and leveraged the capabilities of MediaTek Dimensity 5G Open Resource Architecture Platform to develop the specially customised MediaTek Dimensity 1200-vivo 5G chipset. It features tweaked ISP and APU that can better handle vivo’s image processing algorithms for Super Night Mode, Astro Mode, and Pro Sports Mode. Compared to the vanilla MediaTek Dimensity 1200, this one is 30 percent more efficient at running said image processing algorithms. The phone also offers support for 4K videos at 60fps and uses the chipset’s new ‘Staggered’ 4K HDR video recording ability that provides 40 percent greater dynamic range in 4K video capture.
The primary 50MP sensor onboard the vivo X70 Pro uses a bespoke Sony IMX766V sensor. It’s assisted by the Ultra-Sensing Gimbal Camera assembly to keep images sharp and steady. You also get 5-axis video stabilisation, 60X HyperZoom, and a Super Night Video mode, aside from a Zeiss Style Portrait section that gives you four unique portrait effects. The versatility in the camera setup onboard the vivo X70 Pro gives it an edge against the competition.
Blazing fast speeds with MediaTek Dimensity 1200-vivo
Thanks to the MediaTek Dimensity 1200-vivo chipset, the vivo X70 Pro can deliver blazing fast performance. Its 6nm octa-core setup includes one ARM Cortex-A78 core clocked at a whopping 3GHz. Three other ARM Cortex-A78 cores are clocked at 2.6GHz, while the four efficiency ARM Cortex-A55 cores run at 2GHz each. This allows the chipset to offer 22 percent faster CPU performance while being 25 percent more power-efficient than the previous generation.
In terms of daily use, this means no lags, no frame drops, no performance hiccups, and no app freezes. Once you power on the vivo X70 Pro, it will be smooth sailing till the end. And this kind of raw power will also allow you to indulge in high-end online games without worrying about load times. Such a strong internal setup only means a smooth and uninterrupted user experience. The phone also offers up to 12GB RAM and 256GB of storage. Thanks to the MediaTek Dimensity 1200’s support for UFS 3.1 storage, you can take advantage of 1.7Gbps data throughput.
Splendid 120 Hz E5 AMOLED curved display
The HDR 10+ 6.56-inch 120Hz Ultra Vision Screen onboard the X70 Pro uses the industry-leading E5 luminescent material to enhance its peak brightness and reduce power consumption. So not only do you get smooth and sharp images while scrolling or playing games but there’s also less battery drain. Another good thing about the display is that it comes with a 240Hz touch response rate. The display is also SGS Eye Care Display and SGS Seamless certified, meaning it will cause less strain in your eyes while you are using it.
Amazing battery life with 4,450mAh battery
A 4,450mAh battery goes inside the vivo X70 Pro. Moreover, this powerful unit is assisted by the 44W FlashCharge fast charging technology. Those who want reliable battery backup can trust the vivo X70 Pro fully. You can get a full day use of this phone without any issues. Once you run out of the battery, you can quickly charge it up using the 44W FlashCharge. The phone can go from zero to 60 percent in just 30 minutes. Much of the contribution to the X70 Pro’s battery life also comes from the MediaTek Dimensity 1200-vivo chipset. Its 6nm nature guarantees efficiency, while plenty of other optimisations onboard the chip result in added battery savings.
Super fast 5G support
The presence of the MediaTek Dimensity 1200-vivo chip onboard the vivo X70 Pro gives you future readiness for when the superfast network standard will be made available in India. And not only does the SoC support this feature, but it also looks to enhance its 5G output with added technologies. These include the 5G Elevator Mode and 5G HSR Mode, which ensure seamless 5G experiences with immediate recovery time and reliably faster speeds.
The modem’s 5G-CA certification results in faster average speeds, over 30 percent greater layer coverage, and a seamless handover between multiple 5G connection areas. The MediaTek 5G UltraSave feature has also made its way into the phone, giving it power-saving enhancements that work with both 5G Standalone and non-Standalone networks. Overall, this will ensure that your experience of using 5G on the X70 Pro will be ultra-fast and seamless.
