Vivo X80 series is currently the company’s most premium offering in India. The company launched two premium smartphones in the X80 series. These are the Vivo X80 and Vivo X80 Pro. As the names suggest, the X80 Pro is a more premium offering. However, the vanilla Vivo X80 is no slouch and packs some excellent hardware for the price.
Both devices are currently available for sale in India. The Vivo X80 Pro is priced at Rs 79,999, whereas the Vivo X80 price in India starts at Rs 54,999. There are some offers and discounts, which bring the prices down significantly. In case you are planning to buy either phone, here’s our spec comparison of the Vivo X80 vs the Vivo X80 Pro to help you decide.
Vivo X80 vs Vivo X80 Pro: Price
Vivo X80 is the more affordable one of the two phones here. The device comes with two storage options. Its base 8GB + 128GB variant is priced at Rs 54,999 and Rs 59,999. The Vivo X80 Pro is priced at Rs 79,999 for the sole 12GB + 256GB storage option.
There is a Rs 7,000 discount offer for transactions made using an HDFC Bank credit or debit card. This brings the effective price down to Rs 72,999 for the X80 Pro and Rs 47,999 for the X80.
Both phones offer a glass sandwich design and therefore are quite heavy as well. The X80 weighs about 206 grams, whereas the X80 Pro weighs 219 grams. The X80 Pro is also thicker of the two phones at 9.1mm thickness. The standard X80 is 8.3mm thick in comparison.
Vivo has added the power and volume keys on the right side of the frame for both phones. The X80 Pro comes in a single Cosmic Black, whereas the X80 comes in Cosmic Black and Urban Blue colours.
Both phones offer a 6.78-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate support. The X80 has a lower Full HD+ resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels, whereas the X80 Pro comes with a QHD+ display with a resolution of 3200 x 1440 pixels.
The X80 Pro also uses an LTPO panel, which can dynamically refresh the display from 1Hz to 120Hz depending on the on-screen content. There is an in-display fingerprint scanner. Both devices also sport a curved panel.
Vivo X80 Pro comes with Qualcomm’s top-of-the-line Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. The 4nm chipset is paired with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.
The standard X80 has MediaTek’s 4nm Dimensity 9000 SoC with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. There is no support for microSD card on either phone.
The X80 packs a smaller 4500 mAh battery with support for 80W wired charging out of the box. The X80 Pro, on the other hand, has a bigger 4700 mAh battery. It supports 80W fast charging and 50W wireless charging.
Both phones run Android 12 out of the box. As expected, there is a layer of Funtouch OS 12 on top of Android. The phones are assured to get three major Android updates and security patches for four years.
The USP of the X80 series is its camera. The Vivo X80 camera specifications include a 50MP Sony IMX866 main camera, which is a first in India. It is paired with a 12MP ultrawide camera and a 12MP portrait camera. The X80 Pro, on the other hand, has a quad-camera setup. It has a 50MP Samsung GNV sensor, a 48MP ultrawide camera and a 12MP portrait sensor. There is also an 8MP periscope camera.
For selfies, both phones have a 32MP front camera sensor.
If you ask us, the Vivo X80 offers better value for money. The phone offers excellent hardware for the price, which gets even better when you club the HDFC Bank offer. There is no wireless charging support and the phone also misses out on a periscope camera, which offers 5x optical zoom. In case you want these and a slightly bigger battery, consider getting the Vivo X80 Pro. The X80 Pro also makes use of an LTPO panel, which not only switches the refresh rate dynamically but also helps conserve a bit of juice.
