Highlights
  • Vivo X70 series will launch in September 2021 in partnership with IPL, suggests a new leak.
  • Vivo X70 series specifications are said to be similar to the Vivo X60 lineup.
  • The Vivo X70 launch date is yet to be revealed officially. 

The Vivo X60 series made its debut in January this year. The lineup brings three smartphones, the Vivo X60, Vivo X60 Pro, and the Vivo X60 Pro+. All three smartphones have been praised for their performance and mark Vivo’s entry into the upper mid-range and high-end smartphone segment. While it hasn’t even been six months since the launch of these devices, a new leak suggests that the company is already working on the successor to the Vivo X60 lineup, dubbed, the Vivo X70 series. What is even more interesting is that the Vivo X70 series launch date in India and specifications have also been tipped.

Vivo X70 series specifications and launch date tipped

According to a new report from Gizmochina, Vivo will launch the Vivo X70 series in September this year in partnership with the Indian Premier League (IPL). As you might know, Vivo is the title sponsor for IPL 2021. The Indian Premier League this year, however, was suspended due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The tournament is set to resume between September and October in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Considering that Vivo is the title sponsor for IPL and that the tournament is set to continue in September, it makes sense for the brand to launch the Vivo X70 series in September this year.

If Vivo is indeed planning to launch the Vivo X70 series during IPL, it is very much possible that the upcoming lineup of smartphones will make it to India as IPL is an Indian tournament after all. The publication also sheds some light on the Vivo X70 series specifications. According to it, the Vivo X70 series will be very similar to the Vivo X60 series and there won’t be any big changes between the two lineups. The report hints that the Vivo X70 series will stick with Qualcomm’s chipset, at least in India.

For reference, the Vivo X60 features a 6.56-inch AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. The phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC and is available with up to 12GB RAM and 256GB storage. You get Android 11 with Funtouch 11.1 out of the box. The device has a 48MP primary, 13MP ultrawide, and 13MP 2x telephoto cameras at the rear, and a 32MP selfie shooter. The Vivo X60 packs a 4,300mAh battery with 33W fast charging.
