Highlights of the X90 Pro
The latest device to emerge from the alliance between vivo and ZEISS Global Imaging, on which they have been working for almost three years, incorporates improvements to offer a first-class photographic and videographic experience. This includes a setting of triple main camera newly developed, which significantly increases light sensitivity, natural color processing and image stabilization, to complete a singular experience.
The protagonist is the image sensor I1-inch MX989, the largest in the sector to date. Compared to other devices with a 1-inch sensor, the shutter release 50 megapixels It offers a large f/1.75 aperture and 3.2μm-sized pixels in a 4-in-1 configuration, allowing more light input per pixel for clear, sharp images. The sensor’s photosensitive area has been increased by 77% over last year’s flagship vivo X80 Pro, with light-gathering capacity increased by up to 43%.
Another essential feature is the 50 megapixel portrait camera, with its 50-millimeter fixed-focus setup. Behind the lens is an IMX758 sensor with an f/1.6 aperture, enabling detailed portraits to be captured even in low-light conditions.
The trio of cameras is completed by an ultra-low distortion 108-degree wide-angle, with its 12-megapixel Sony IMX663 sensor and f/2.0 aperture, allowing you to get the right shot even when you’re close to your subject.
The X90 Pro introduces a bespoke optical image stabilization (OIS) technology developed by vivo. This technology performs intelligent and precise stabilization correction compared to standard OIS, achieving CIPA Image Stabilization Level 4, which indicates a professional setting level.
The X90 Pro benefits from upgraded sensors, and also from a bespoke image processor: the vivo V2, which features self-developed artificial intelligence algorithms. It incorporates T-coated ZEISS optics to further enhance night photography and astrophotography capabilities. Thanks to advances in hardware and software, it is capable of recording 4K video in low light conditions, achieving sharpness even at high ISO settings, due to the noise reduction algorithm. It also captures the starry sky without the need for a tripod, thanks to the astro mode and, with the AI-powered night mode, it addresses the challenge of achieving accurate color tones in night photography.
The X90 Pro incorporates the ZEISS Natural Color 2.0 function, which has been calibrated by vivo and ZEISS to render colors authentically, bringing captured images closer to what is seen with the naked eye.
Another powerful function that the imaging system makes possible is motion capture without shutter lag, which allows the user to achieve the “Perfect Capture & rdquor; be easier. Lag-free shooting means what you see is exactly what you get, even in low light. In the “Sports” and “Night Sports & rdquor; The combination of the high-speed shutter and the motion detection algorithm can instantly freeze frames, keeping a fast-moving subject—like a water balloon bursting in midair, for example—in sharp focus.
Finally, note that, thanks to the 1-inch sensor, the smartphone offers creative effects such as the ZEISS Cine-flare Portrait, which simulates the flare effect seen in many movies, or the ZEISS Miniature Effect, which allows the capture of landscapes sharp miniature urban scenes, creating scenes without the need for post-production.
Autonomy and charge
The X90 Pro supports charging ultra fast 120 W which, combined with a dual-cell battery with an equivalent capacity of 4870 mAh, improves both charging speed and battery life. It supports wireless charging up to 50W.
It offers two charging modes: fast charging and balanced mode. In fast charge mode, the X90 Pro can be charged up to 50% in 8 minutes and 10 seconds. Balanced mode is suitable for daily charging, as it only takes 29 minutes for the battery to be 100% full. The device has 24-dimensional safety protection and TÜV Rheinland Safe Fast-Charge System certification to ensure safety.
The tests carried out on the device have revealed its excellent performance in all assigned tasks. This is a professional imaging device with a dual processor. Leading the duo is a MediaTek Dimensity 9200 mobile platform which, together with the vivo V2 image processor, enables a AnTuTu Benchmark score of 1.26 million. The rest of the specification is rounded out with 12GB LPDDR5X memory and 256GB UFS 4.0 storage, boosted by Extended RAM 3.0, which adds an additional 8GB of virtual memory, and UFS Defragmentation, which offers smooth multitasking and data processing. .
The improved liquid cooling system with a vapor chamber keeps the components that work the most at the optimal temperature. This system features a 24-layer cooling structure, which has been increased by more than a third over its predecessor, and covers an area of 4,002 square mm. An innovative frame design reduces heat transfer from the CPU to the phone’s frame, keeping the areas where your hands touch the phone when held horizontally up to 2ºC cooler in heavy-load scenarios like intensive gaming.
The entire front of the phone is reserved for a 6.78 inch screen offering immersive viewing effects and advanced eye protection. It is a 3D screen with curved edges and very narrow bezels to reach more screen area and offer an immersive video experience, as if you had a movie screen in the palm of your hand.
The screen is made with a new luminescent material Q9 which effectively reduces blue light and offers greater energy efficiency, consuming 15% less. The MTK Dimensity 9200 processor monitors the percentage of blue light in real time and intelligently reduces it to protect your eyesight. The AMOLED display features high-frequency pulse-width (PWM) dimming that reaches a frequency of up to 2160Hz. This dimming system is able to reduce flicker and shape screen brightness precisely: by adjusting the screen-on-off time ratio, and using the visual residue of the human eye, it controls 0% brightness dimming. 100% with up to 16,000 levels for a more progressive, smooth and comfortable dimming than does not hurt the eyes.
One of the team’s surprises is that for the first time, the ZEISS Natural Color Display is added to the display color style settings as an option, in addition to the default display mode, so that captured colors are not affected by the screen. Each individual screen on the vivo X90 Pro is calibrated so that color reproduction is close to what the human eye can see.
The vivo X90 Pro’s curved display reproduces 1.07 billion colors and a 100% DCI-P3 wide color gamut, delivering rich, natural tones. It features HDR10+ and SGS eye protection certifications for low blue light, low motion blur, and low flicker, as well as a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz, ideal for gaming.
It includes a three-microphone system for greater directionality and noise filtering. It can detect where the sound is coming from based on the strength of each audio signal reaching each of the three microphones, which can better eliminate background noise and improve sound recording quality or call quality.
It has a double stereo speaker, an X-Axis linear motor or haptic vibrator, which is accompanied by an algorithm that provides different vibration responses depending on the scenario or situation within the game for an immersive experience, providing an immersive audiovisual experience and rich response.
