Vivo X30 and Vivo X30 Pro are Official: Both Comes With 5G Modern

The Vivo camera focused X-series is back again, and this time with a bang and more premium standing. The new Vivo X30 and Vivo X30 Pro was officially announced today, and both phones feature Samsung chipsets with an integrated 5G modem, a first in the industry even before Samsung did it.

Vivo X30 and Vivo X30 Pro are Official: Both Comes With 5G Modern

Vivo X30 and Vivo X30 Pro Features

The Vivo X30 and Vivo X30 Pro are almost the same phone, the major difference is that the Pro model has a 5x periscope camera. It shoots 12MP photos at the native focal length of 135mm, but digital zoom can go up to 60x magnification (and there’s a dedicated mode for photos of the Moon).

A defining feature of the X30 camera setup is the 50mm portrait camera. It has a high resolution 32MP sensor and a bright f/2.0 aperture. Taking a page out of Sony’s handbook, the autofocus locks onto the eyes of your subjects and will track them as they move. There is also a bokeh feature, naturally.

Note that since the 50mm portrait cam on the non-Pro model is its only zoom camera, it tops out at 2x optical and 20x digital zoom.

The main camera of the Vivo X30 and Vivo X30 Pro packs a 64MP sensor and a 26.4mm lens with f/1.8 aperture. The Super Night mode can stack 12-16 photos to reduce the noise in the dark. There’s also “Hyper HDR”, which specializes in shooting against the sun or bright lights at night.

Then there is the 8MP ultrawide-angle camera, 16mm or 108° (after perspective correction), which takes 8MP photos. Finally, the 32MP selfie camera lives in a tiny punch hole, a hair under 3mm in diameter.

Vivo calls the 6.44 inch Super AMOLED panel “XDR display”. It boasts 800 nits of brightness, going up to a maximum of 1,200 nits local brightness. The panel has 1,080 x 2,400 resolution.

The Vivo X30 and Vivo X30 Pro are powered by the Exynos 980 chipset. It features two Cortex-A77 cores (which promise a 20% performance boost over the A76), plus six A55 cores. The CPU and the Mali-G76 MP5 GPU are hooked up to a heat pipe to keep them running cool.

The most interesting part of this chipset is the integrated 5G modem. It can deliver speeds up to 3.55Gbps (combining 4G and 5G). The “Multi-Turbo 2.5” feature will switch over to 4G or 5G if the Wi-Fi network is slow to ensure things download as fast as possible.

Both Vivo X30 phones has a 4350mAh battery, which supports 33W Flash Charge through the USB-C port. There’s also a dedicated 3.5mm headphone jack.

Vivo X30 and Vivo X30 Pro Price and Availability

Both phones will be available in China later this month. The Vivo X30 Pro will be available first, from December 24, 2019 and will cost CNY 4,000 for the 8GB/128GB model and CNY 4,300 for the 8GB/256GB option.

The Vivo X30 will be available only in 8GB/128GB configuration at first, starting on December 28, 2019 at a price of CNY 3,300. There is an 8GB/256GB version in the cards targeting CNY 3,600.
