Last month Vivo launched its new flagship lineup for 2021. It is composed of three models: Vivo X60, Vivo X60 Pro, and Vivo X60 Pro+. All of them come with high-end specifications and 5G connectivity, so in each case, you get at least a flagship killer. But is it worth spending more on the Pro+ variant or the X60 and the X60 Pro are enough powerful for every kind of user? This internal comparison will highlight all the main differences between the specifications of the new Vivo series for the most demanding users.

The Vivo X60 Pro+ has the most raffinate design: it is the only one to come with a leather back (it is eco leather, though). The design of the X60 Pro is identical, with the exception of the leather back: it has a glass back just like most of the flagships out there. The X60 differs from the X60 Pro and the X60 Pro+ due to its flat display: it does not have curved edges and, while this might make the phone a bit more comfortable to use, it makes it less elegant at first glance.
Vivo X60, X60 Pro, and X60 Pro+ feature the same display specifications. In each case, you get a Full HD+ panel with the AMOLED technology and a 120 Hz refresh rate, as well as the HDR10+ certification improving the image quality. Whatever you choose, you should get the same display quality, so go ahead and focus on the other specifications.
Vivo X60 and X60 Pro sport the same chipset: an Exynos 1080 by Samsung. Not the most powerful chipset by Samsung, but still a flagship-class SoC built with a 5 nm production process. The X60 Pro+ is actually superior thanks to its Snapdragon 888 mobile platform which is actually the best processor in the Android world and naturally the best Qualcomm’s SoC for mobile devices.
Besides providing the best hardware experience, the Vivo X60 Pro+ has the best camera department. It comes with a 50 MP main sensor with a bright f/1.6 focal aperture, a periscope sensor with 5x optical zoom, a 32 MP telephoto sensor for portraits, a 48 MP ultrawide sensor, dual OIS, laser autofocus, and gimbal stabilization. It is one of the best camera phones in the market. The X60 Pro has the same sensors as the X60 but it adds an 8 MP periscope sensor with 5x optical zoom. For the rest, X60 and X60 Pro have the same cameras, inferior to the X60 Pro+.
Despite it is the lower-end variant, the Vivo X60 has a bigger 4300 mAh battery and it should provide a slightly longer battery life. But the X60 Pro+ supports faster 55W charging. However, X60 and X60 Pro still charge quickly thanks to their 33W fast charging technology.
Vivo X60 is priced at about €440/$534, X60 Pro starts from less than €560/$680, and X60 Pro+ begins at €640/$775. They are actually available in China. If we exclude the periscope camera and the design, the X60 offers the same experience as the X60 Pro. That is why we believe its value for money is higher. X60 Pro+ is a lot better than both the other variants thanks to a better chipset, cameras, and faster charging, but not a lot of people need this superiority.
