Vivo’s X80 flagship is set to be released on April 25th. According to rumours, the Sony IMX866 will make its debut on the X80.
The new flagship device will include a camera with gimbal stabilisation, similar to the one found in the Vivo x70 IMX766. It was equipped with the standard quad Bayer filter. The IMX866 is set to the RGBW filter in x80. This filter, which will catch more light, will be supported by the V1+ imaging chip, which includes custom image processing algorithms. The camera module will also have an advanced 7-element lens. The Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating will be applied to all of these cameras.
The size of the Sony IMX866 optical format, 1.5′′, differs very little from that of its predecessor visual format, 1.56′′.
The Vivo x80 will also have the Samsung 1/1.3′′ GNV sensor, according to the teasers. The “V” in GNV denotes that this GNV sensor is made specifically for the Vivo. Last year, the GN1 sensor was used in the Vivo X70 Pro+, while the IMX766 sensor was used in the Pro variant; this year, the GNV sensor is expected to be used in the X80 Pro+, while the IMX866 sensor will be used in the Pro variant.
Furthermore, the X80 flagship will feature an improved V1+ ISP paired with a Dimensity 9000 chipset or a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. Combining these chipsets and the new camera lens sensor will be a winning combination.
