With the release of the Vivo X90 Pro+, Vivo has declared its camera to be the “King of One Inch sensors,” demonstrating an extreme amount of faith in its product. Although it isn’t the first smartphone to include Sony’s IMX989 imager, Vivo added several unique features to set it apart.
The lens is the first item that light encounters. It has an Abbe number of 81.6, indicating that the glass element is of superior quality (a higher number means less light dispersion, plastic can have a number as low as 30). Also, it has been coated with Zeiss’s T* formulation, which eliminates ghosting and glare. Since the lens has an aperture of f/1.75, more light can enter the camera than with, say, a lens on a particular Xiaomi, which has an aperture of f/1.9.
The 1″ IMX989 sensor is up to the challenge, with 77% more photosensitive area than the 1/1.3″ sensor in the X80 Pro. By grouping four separate 1.6 m sensors together, an effective pixel size of 3.2 m can be achieved. Once that is complete, we may go on to the picture-processing phase.
Finally these conclusions can be said:

Two telephoto cameras are included in the X90 Pro+. The 90mm periscope lens with the 64MP sensor is the better choice. Optical zoom is 3.5x, while digital zoom can go up to 100x on this one. A 50MP sensor is located behind a brilliant 50mm portrait lens (f/1.6, fixed focus) (IMX758). Every one of the three cameras we’ve discussed so far has optical image stabilization.
To minimize distortion, the ultrawide-angle lens was designed. The 114-degree viewing angle and 48-megapixel sensor are two of its distinguishing features (IMX598). The autofocus on the back cameras is helped by time-of-flight laser technology. And last, the front-facing camera has a 32-megapixel sensor (f/2.45).
Capturing 8K video at 30 frames per second is possible with the X90 Pro+. There is also a high-quality 14-bit RAW video option available. The camera’s white balance may be adjusted using a standard grey card, and you can choose between Zeiss Natural Color 2.0 and Vivo Vivid Color shooting modes. Capturing still images at 10 frames per second while recording video is possible, as is support for Dolby Vision and LOG codecs.
Not all of the camera’s capabilities have been shown off just yet, but here’s a sample of what the Vivo can accomplish. Landscape, Architecture, and Miniature Bokeh are three examples of the specialized modes that were created in collaboration with Zeiss and are showcased in the photographs below.
Don’t let that make you think the Vivo X90 Pro+’s primary selling point is its camera. It has the cutting-edge Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, and it comes with either 256GB or 512GB of brand-new UFS 4.0 storage along with 12GB of RAM. Stable performance is ensured by connecting the chipset to a massive vapor chamber of 8,900 mm2.
The brand-new Vivo V2 ISP was implemented to manage imaging tasks for the organization. The improved chip is more power efficient, with 16TOPS at 1W, and it has 45MB of SRAM built right in. Noise suppression, high dynamic range, motion estimation, and more are all handled by this hybrid ISP/AI system.
Viva’s X90 Pro+ boasts a 6.78-inch screen with a resolution of 1,440 by 3,200 pixels (20:9). The Samsung E6 LTPO 4 AMOLED display supports 10-bit colors and a refresh rate of up to 120 hertz. The display employs a 1,440Hz high-frequency PWM technology for dimming. There’s a maximum of 1,800 nits. Dolby Vision is supported by the factory-calibrated, double-curved screen.
The phone’s body is available in China Red and Original Black, both of which are textured like imitation leather. It can withstand dust and water, earning an IP68 rating, so you don’t have to worry about bringing it outside. It’s a tad on the hefty side, coming in at 9.7mm thick and 221g (albeit still lighter than the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 and the iPhone 14 Pro Max).
A 4,700mAh battery (18.23Wh) is housed inside and can be quickly recharged thanks to the battery’s split-cell design. The Pro+ can be charged with a connected 80W or wirelessly with a 50W charger, so Vivo didn’t go overboard. A full charge can be obtained in 33 minutes if you use a wired connection.
There are a few other points I want to make. Even though the phone has dual speakers, it also has a wireless option in the form of the new Vivo TWS 3 Pro, which promises lossless, low-latency sound. Both aptX HD and LDAC, in addition to Bluetooth 5.3, are supported. The wired USB-C compatibility is capable of USB 3.2 Gen1 speeds and includes video out.
Launching alongside OriginOS 3 in China is the Vivo X90 Pro+. Pre-orders for the Pro+ won’t begin until November 28, with the device’s release date set for December 6. This is in contrast to the quick availability of its siblings. At least in China, Vivo has been mum on details of a worldwide release.
Its 12/256GB model will retail in China for CNY 6,500 ($910/€890/74,500), while the 12/512GB model will cost CNY 7,000.
