After a few slow weeks, phone season is in full swing again, with more launches this week than we have time to talk about on the show – so we’re focussing on the big ones.
First up, Vivo unveiled its flagship X80 series in China, and confirmed plans to bring them worldwide next month too. The X80 and X80 Pro (no Pro+ yet, but it’s coming later in the year) both feature serious camera specs and use the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 chipset – with an extra 8 Gen 1 option for the Pro. The X70 series won the camera battle last year, so can the X80 repeat the trick?
Meanwhile Huawei is unveiling its fourth book-style foldable today: the Mate Xs 2. At the time of writing we know nothing about it, but by the time of the show we’ll have all the info from the Chinese launch to chat through on the show.
Finally, Poco unveiled the F4 GT – the first flagship-level phone it’s bringing to the global market. With a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, 120Hz AMOLED display, and 120W charging this is no slouch – but can it meet Poco’s aim to deliver a gaming phone that’s not just for gamers?
