Vivo and the specialist in precision optics Zeiss have jointly developed the optics of the new X60 Pro, a powerful smartphone gifted for photography, incorporating a formidable stabilization system, completely new.
Among the star smartphones, those that make the difference are the “photophones”. They are generally powerful monsters who have an enormous advantage, that of having developed an optic worthy of that of realwith a specialist in precision optics. Few brands embark on the adventure and renowned optical specialists can be counted on the fingers of one hand. It must be said that this is a partnership where the “optician” and the manufacturer choose each other for a win-win operation for themselves as well as for the user. And precisely, since 2020, the German Zeiss, one of the renowned specialists in precision optics, has been working hand in hand with the smartphone manufacturer Vivo to achieve the holy grail of mobile photography.
It is with the very latest Vivo X60 Pro that the association of the two partners have taken advantage of their expertise to create one of the best photophones of the moment. For its part, Vivo worked on what is called a gimbal, that is to say an effective mechanical stabilizer. It must be said that for smartphones, if there has been undeniable progress, stabilization remains one of the points that makes it possible to differentiate a video taken with a camera or a well-equipped SLR.
A miniaturized gimbal in the photo module
In all cases, a gimbal is located outside the device, it is integrated into a pole with a system based on four axes and small motors that soften theand to give the feeling of a that slips. And precisely, Vivo has managed to develop an improbable gimbal so miniaturized that it is directly integrated into the mobile. It is a real achievement. It is clear that Vivo is doing extremely well with its stabilizer to the point that it is difficult to criticize. By adding Zeiss certification to its optics, the mobile takes a step forward.
Zeiss optics filter thewhich impregnates the four at of the Vivo X60 Pro. Thus, the main 48 megapixel sensor with a large aperture (f / 1.48) allows better capture of light in the dark. Accompanied by the gimbal, it ensures quality without blurring, but again the Zeiss optics certainly have a lot to do with it. It is accompanied by a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle, a magnifying zoom of 2 x 13 megapixels. For portraits, the master of optics Zeiss has integrated his Zeiss Biotar filter on his portrait mode. A real asset to naturally improve the effects linked to the depth of field, while ensuring fair and precise outlines for the main subject.
For the rest, the high-end atmosphere is required with a 5.56-inch curved screen that can have a refresh to 120as required. This featherweight encloses the powerful Snapdragon 870. The comes with 12 GB of and 256 GB for storage. The set is powered by a generous 4,200 mAh battery with a 33 W fast charger. With this X60 Pro undoubtedly gifted for photography, Vivo could well shake some competitors who have also relied on the expertise of a specialist in optics, but sometimes without succeeding in drawing all the capacities out of it.
The Vivo X60 Pro has been available in France since May 25 at a price of 799 euros.
