vivo X60 series coming to the Philippines

The camera powerhouse is landing soon

vivo has done it again with the vivo X60 series of smartphones. A teaser made by vivo leads to speculating that these phones are arriving real soon.

The virtual global launch that was held last March 25, 2021, gave us a first look at the vivo X60 and X60 Pro. These smartphones are the fruit of the partnership of vivo and German optics maker ZEISS in co-engineering the cameras. At the same time, vivo has also launched their top-of-the-line X60 Pro+. However, speculations lead to the X60 Pro+ not being available locally. as it shows us the rear camera arrangement of the X60 and X60 Pro only, which can support the speculations.

Both the vivo X60 and X60 Pro share almost the same specs including the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor, 33W FlashCharge capability, screen size, refresh rate, and almost the same dimensions and design. It is a little hard to distinguish both smartphones at first look, but one distinct physical difference is the screen design. vivo has opted for a flat screen for the X60 and a 3D curved one for the X60 Pro.
