Vivo X70 Pro+ Review: Price in India, Specifications, Unboxing & Features

Vivo X70 Pro+ Review: Isn’t it a little early? Is this a brand-new model or a mid-cycle update? Is it in the same league as the last one, or is it a step higher? Is the price increase over the previous model justified? A slew of questions, which we’ll attempt to answer in this vivo X70 Pro+ review.

The X70 Pro+ was announced eight months after the X60s, but because we only received the X60 Pro+ in April, it feels like the following generation has arrived much ahead of schedule. A quick look at the specifications of the otherwise fantastic quad-camera on the rear reveals no upgrades (one small downgrade, even). While image is obviously a primary concern for this vivo, with all those cameras and Zeiss logos strewn throughout, the enhancements must be somewhere.

For starters, there’s the display. The new LTPO AMOLED display has an adaptive refresh rate (up to 120Hz), increased maximum brightness, and is now QHD.

Stereo speakers, which we nearly didn’t think would ever make it to a vivo flagship, finally make it. And there’s one more surprise, as well as a welcome one: the X70 Pro+ is now IP68-certified, making it the first vivo with dust and water resistance.

Switching from the SD888 to the SD888+ makes sense at this time of year, and doubling the base capacity to 256GB (with an extra 512GB) is also a welcome sight. A boost in battery capacity is always welcome, and the addition of wireless charging is also welcome.

However, a handful of key adjustments have us concerned. For starters, the general size and weight increase – the X60 Pro+ was a one-of-a-kind combination of high-end camera gear and a small body, and the X70 Pro+ throws pocketability out the window. Then there’s the price: the new model is 15% more expensive than its predecessor, which wasn’t exactly inexpensive to begin with.

We’ll dig deeper to see if the trade-offs are worthwhile, but first, let’s have a look at the essential specifications.

Vivo X70 Pro+ Review: Price in India, Specifications, Unboxing & Features

The X70 Pro+ arrives in a fancier-than-most retail box, as we’ve come to expect from vivo’s high-end phones. The phone’s name is etched in glossy letters front and centre on the dark grey textured cardboard packaging. A significant highlight is the blue Zeiss logo. In truth, vivo’s logo is only visible on two sides, and it’s really little.

Only the top one-third of the phone’s back – where the cameras are – is visible when the lid is lifted open. They’re peering through a cutout in the designated tray, which has the phone face down.

Aside from the aesthetics, the phone comes with a lot more than just the essentials. You got a hefty 66W charger (which exceeds the phone’s 55W charging capacity) as well as a cable, which is relatively usual. However, there’s also a pair of in-ear headphones with a USB-C port, which is unusual for earbuds.

Not only that, but you also receive a snap-on back cover that protects the top, bottom, and corners while leaving the sides open so you can fully appreciate the display’s curves. The case’s outside surface is also wrapped in vegan leather, which helps with grip, which the phone itself lacks. On the following page, we’ll go through this in greater detail.
