revealed Vivo announced the X70, the latest version of its X series of camera-focused phones powered by Zeiss lens company.
As usual, there are three models with the X70 Pro Plus at the top due to the Snapdragon 888 Plus chipset and screen, camera and battery upgrades compared to the X60 Pro Plus model that was introduced in January.
The X70 Pro Plus uses a 6.78-inch Samsung E5 AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1440 x 3200 pixels and maintains HDR support. With an IP68 rating, which makes the phone dust-proof and water-resistant.
This new monitor uses an LTPO panel, which means it can gradually adjust the refresh rate in the range from 1 Hz to 120 Hz. Touch sampling rate is 300 Hz. The E5 AMOLED panel also uses 25 percent less power than older E4 panels.
The device includes LPDDR5 RAM with a capacity of 8 or 12 GB. And UFS 3.1 storage space with a capacity of 256 or 512 GB.
The battery capacity is now 4500mAh, and the FlashCharge charging speed is still at 55W. But a new addition is wireless charging that’s almost as fast as 50W that also works with Qi.
This is the company’s first phone to support wireless charging, making it a more viable conversion option for anyone who places Qi chargers around their home.
The Zeiss-branded camera array includes a 50-megapixel Samsung GN1 main sensor, a 48-megapixel IMX598 ultra-wide-angle sensor with axial stabilization and a 114-degree field of view, a 12-megapixel telephoto sensor (5x zoom), and an 8-megapixel Periscope telephoto lens.
All four cameras have some kind of optical image stabilization in addition to electronic stabilization.

The X70 Pro and X70 feature smaller 6.56-inch screens with 120Hz refresh rate, MediaTek Dimensity 1200 processors, and 44W fast charging. But there is no wireless charging yet.
