Key to the X60 series’ superior photography capabilities lies in its ground-breaking vivo ZEISS co-engineered imaging system. The X60 series has three rear cameras (48MP + 13MP + 13MP), as well as a 32MP front camera. The ZEISS logo has been emblazoned on the lens, while the ZEISS Vario-Tessar trademark is engraved beneath the cameras.
For the first time, users can also access ZEISS Biotar Portrait Style on the vivo X series. This new feature allows users to create customized professional portraits, with an unprecedented ability to render centre sharpness and unique swirly harmonious bokeh.
vivo has refined its existing imaging technologies to be implemented within the X60 series, starting with Gimbal Stabilization 2.0. Both devices utilise the latest VIS 5-axis video stabilization technology, allowing users to obtain clear shots of objects in dynamic motion with greater accuracy. Additionally, Extreme Night Vision 2.0 helps users to recreate the million shades of night with a single tap, capturing the impressive expanse of the night through vivo’s innovative AI noise reduction algorithm.
