The telephone market is at a time of great maturity, where it is difficult to see terminals that make a difference. In the high range, above all, what is sought It is a balanced phone in all its aspects, with first-rate features. So far in 2023, leaving aside those who almost always compete for the high-end, there is a player who has caught the attention of all of us who are dedicated to the world of technology. It is none other than the vivo X90 Pro.
Last year’s model, vivo X80 Pro, already surprised everyone by ranking as one of the best phones, especially for its versatile and powerful camera in all scenarios. For this reason, when this year the Chinese brand announced that its new terminal would arrive premium, most of us expected to see a new milestone in photography. So it was, by Zeiss and with the incorporation of a one-inch image sensor. But it does not only have a promising camera, as a device in general it also has many other good things that we are going to explain to you.
Make way for the best camera of the year
In the Spanish Soccer League, which is also sponsored by Vivo, the title of champion is usually divided between two teams, mainly. When the winner is a third party, everyone values their victory much more.
If we talk about the best cameras on a smartphone, vivo has come to compete face to face with the main manufacturers. The camera on the new X90 Pro is undoubtedly one of the best we’ve seen on a phone so far.
Three cameras and a one-inch sensor
The photographic module of the new vivo X90 Pro is made up of three sensors, two of 50 megapixels and another of 12 megapixels. All of them thought and designed to capture the maximum possible light, always in collaboration with ZEISS, as in the two previous generations.
Of the three sensors, the one that takes all the eyes is the 1-inch IMX989 sensor, the largest to date on a smartphone. It has an aperture of f/1.75 and pixels that are 3.2 μm in size in a 4-in-1 configuration thanks to pixel binning. In this way, four pixels can act as one and thus multiply the capture of light from the environment.
And if you like portraits, then you will value, and a lot, the second 50-megapixel camera with a fixed-focus 50-millimeter setup. Thanks to the IMX758 sensor with an aperture of f/1.6, you will have as a result portraits of immense quality, even at night or in low light situations.
The third camera is a 108 degree wide anglewith a 12-megapixel IMX663 sensor and f/2.0 aperture.
Optical stabilizer and a vivo-specific processor
vivo has been doing an exceptional job with image stabilization for years, especially in the video part. Let’s remember that their two previous models included a gimbal to prevent the plane from moving.
In the case of the new vivo X90 Pro we have an optical image stabilization technology exclusively developed by vivo. It is capable of correcting movement in a more intelligent and precise way compared to other gimbals. To get an idea, it reaches CIPA Image Stabilization Level 4, which indicates a professional setting level.
Regarding the image processor, vivo has relied on the vivo V2 for its latest model, which uses Artificial Intelligence to process and improve the result of the images. It is also capable of recording 4K videos, capturing the sky without the need for a tripod or achieving more realistic colors even at night.
Other interesting aspects of the new vivo X90 Pro
This is the moment in which we review the rest of the features of the new vivo X90 Pro. For example, we are going to start with one that users give the most importance to, the battery.
vivo X90 Pro has a 4,870 mAh battery but the most important thing is how and how long it will take us to recharge it. For example, if it is almost exhausted, taking it to 50% will not take us more than eight minutes thanks to its 120W ultra-fast charging system. If we want to charge it completely, to 100%, that will take us just under half an hour.
We now go to the processor. vivo V2 processor complements the powerful MediaTek Dimensity 9200 and results in a very powerful phone, in any situation, whether watching 4K videos, playing games or having several applications open at the same time. When the processor is working, the vapor chamber liquid cooling system will prevent the device from heating up.
Last but not least the new vivo X90 Pro It has a 6.78-inch AMOLED screen.with a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz and with a resolution of 2800 × 1260. The most important thing, in addition to the incredible reproduction quality, is that it incorporates special software designed to take care of our eyesight, for example by adjusting the brightness level to avoid eye fatigue.
Summary and conclusion
Although we have named many features that look very good on paper, the important thing when you test a phone are the sensations. During the time that we have been able to test the new vivo X90 Pro we were surprised that it was able to improve on last year’s phone, which was already very good. An even more fluid experience and a camera never seen before make it the best choice for photography lovers, both those who practice it as a hobby and professionals.
