According to the tipster Ice Universe, Vivo will launch the Vivo X90 Pro+ in December. The device is said to come with a 1-inch main camera and a new telephoto sensor. Furthermore, the device will have a new telephoto algorithm for the telephoto lens.
There’s no information on which sensor will the brand use, but to recall, Xiaomi launched its Xiaomi 12S Ultra earlier this year with a massive 1-inch sensor. The sensor used on the phone was by Sony, it’s the Sony IMX989 sensor. This hints that Vivo may use the same sensor on its X90 Pro+, but let’s not jump to conclusions as the brand is yet to confirm the same.
As for the screen, the device will feature a Samsung E6 panel and we expect it to have a high refresh rate. There’s no information about the phone’s battery and fast charging, but it will likely be improved.
