Vivo has launched the flagship X90 series in China. As expected, there are three models— Vivo X90 Pro Plus, Vivo X90 Pro, and Vivo X90. The top-of-the-line X90 Pro Plus comes rocking Qualcomm’s latest and greatest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor and two telephoto cameras. There’s also a 1-inch Sony IMX989 main sensor in this phone (Vivo put the same sensor inside the X90 Pro as well). The X90 Pro and X90 meanwhile come with MediaTek Dimensity 9200 processor and 120W fast charging. All the three phones run Vivo’s new OriginOS 3 software and use its custom V2 ISP chip giving low-light photography a major shot in the arm.
