Not that it’s a surprise or anything, but Vivo, today, confirmed that it will launch its premium Vivo X80 series in India on May 18. The company only recently started running a timer on its website confirming the launch date, but it is now sharing invites with the media making things seemingly more official. The series is also listed on Flipkart, at the time of writing.
The X80 series has two models, for now. There is the standard Vivo X80 and Vivo X80 Pro. Both were launched in China, not long ago, before breaking into global markets recently beginning with Malaysia. The X80 Pro in China comes in two versions, one with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and another with MediaTek’s Dimensity 9000 chip. Globally, however, the phone is launching with Snapdragon inside and something similar will be expected in India, too. The X80, on the other hand, is powered by the Dimensity 9000.
