Earlier this week, the biggest Chinese phone maker, vivo, announced some details about the X90 series of cameras, or let’s say “boasts”. The company has revealed a number of improvements made by itself and partner Zeiss, but has mostly kept concrete details under wraps. However, he shared some camera samples for us to check out.
Now an insider has revealed some details about the X90’s camera system. The details are incomplete, with nothing on the ultra-wide-angle camera, for example, but they do include details about the other image sensors. Also note that the configuration difference between vivo X90 Pro and Pro+ is currently unclear.
As expected, the X90 series brings a 1-inch sensor and there’s really only one option at the moment – the IMX989. This is supported by the new vivo V2 ISP chip, which the company mentioned during the presentation. It combines traditional ISP techniques with modern AI algorithms and is very efficient (16.3 TOPS per Watt).
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 + vivo V1+ combo is getting a sequel with the X90 series.
The telephoto camera uses a 64MP OmniVision OV64B – 1/2-inch sensor with 0.7µm pixels, plus support for 4-in-1 pixel binning and 3-exposure-level HDR. The focal length of the lens is TBD.
There will be a similar portrait lens on the X80 series, but this time it will be paired with a 50MP sensor. This is interesting – the sensor will be IMX758 (1 / 2.51), according to our source and will start with the vivo X90 series.
In addition, the vivo X90 series supports Dolby Vision – for shooting, editing and viewing, just like the iPhone 14. The X90 series is expected to be revealed in December, but we need to see more details before then.
