vivo Announces X70 Series 5G Singapore Launch, Advancing Professional Mobile Photography with ZEISS

Singapore, 27 November 2021

vivo officially debuts its X70 series 5G of professional photography flagship smartphones in Singapore. The X70 series 5G – consisting of the X70 and X70 Pro – marks the next chapter in vivo's global imaging partnership with ZEISS and their joint pursuit of creating the ultimate mobile photography experience. As a longstanding pioneer of the industry, vivo is bringing joy to users worldwide by heightening the standards of mobile photography and smartphone innovation with the X70 series 5G. Following other regional markets, Singapore will roll out the vivo X70 series 5G on 4 December 2021.

Advancing Mobile Imaging Together with ZEISS

Reflecting vivo's commitment to spearheading the field of smartphone photography, the X70 series 5G is thoroughly ingrained with premium mobile imaging software and hardware capabilities co-engineered with ZEISS, a legend in the world of optics for 175 years.

"Once again, vivo is breaking boundaries by delivering exceptional mobile photography advancements jointly developed with ZEISS, a global leader in optics and opto-electronics," said Spark Ni, Senior Vice President and CMO of vivo. "Smartphones are trustworthy tools for users to capture memories, a digital gateway to tell their own stories and share those creations with the world. With the X70 series 5G, vivo is actively closing the gap between mobile and professional photography by infusing user-oriented innovation with cutting-edge technology."


The vivo X70 series 5G incorporates top-notch computational imaging features inside and out, resulting in an intuitive photography experience that enables users to capture or record remarkably natural-looking photographs or videos. On the camera specs front, both X70 and X70 Pro come with a 32MP front camera. For the rear camera system, the X70 is equipped with a triple-camera system (40MP Ultra-Sensing Gimbal Camera + 12MP Portrait Camera + 12MP Wide-Angle Camera) while the X70 Pro is equipped with a quad-camera system (50MP Ultra-Sensing Gimbal Camera + 12MP Portrait Camera + 12MP Wide-Angle Camera + 8MP Periscope Camera).

X70 camera lenses have a certified compliance to ZEISS T* coating, which reduces stray lights and ghosting effects for true colours whether it's day or night

In addition to the Biotar Portait Style's legendary swirly bokeh, vivo has supplemented three groundbreaking ZEISS Style Portrait features – inspired by the iconic, classical lenses Distagon, Planar and Sonnar – for X70 series 5G users to shoot with. The "Distagon" style produces an anamorphic effect, offering dynamic perspective while exuding Hollywood filmmaking aesthetics perfect for architecture and interior photography. The "Planar" adaption introduces classic bokeh effects, allowing photos to convey genuine expressions through portrait photography. Lastly, the "Sonnar" mode is known for its creamy bokeh, making it well suited for portraiture with depth and clarity to document authentic events.


The entire vivo X70 series 5G lineup has achieved certified compliance with ZEISS T* Coating, reducing reflections and enhancing light transmission to reduce ghosting, stray light and other image artifacts for guaranteed imaging brilliance. The recognisable ZEISS logo and ZEISS T* Coating label is stamped on the X70 series' rear camera array, while a ZEISS Vario-Tessar trademark has been subtly engraved on its protruding flashlight panel.

The 12MP Portrait camera comes with a 50mm equivalent focal length for better portraits and for better looks

High-End Professional Photography Flagship

The X70 series 5G includes new technologies as well as the latest iterations of vivo's iconic multi-modal photography and videography features, allowing users to thoroughly showcase their creativity in high-definition and produce vivid multi-media content with no compromises to quality.

Both models utilise an Ultra-Sensing Gimbal Camera coupled with Gimbal Stabilisation 3.0 technology for users to capture steady images or videos in dynamic motion. VIS 5-Axis Ultra Stable Video technology continues to provide steady footage in motion by integrating enhanced OIS with EIS to transition the X/Y-axis with Z-axis rotation for well-rounded stability.

Due to the high-performing device imaging capabilities, a suite of vivo's multi-modal photography and videography features – including Real-Time Extreme Night Vision, Super Night Video, Pure Night View, Pro Cinematic Mode and more – are available on the X70 series 5G for users to unleash their potential and explore a multitude of new visual aesthetics.

Top-Line Performance Gains

vivo's premium flagship line aims to revolutionise mobile imaging. The X70 series 5G lineup consists of two powerhouse devices with specs that can satisfy even the most demanding high-performance smartphone user. The X70 series 5G runs on the MediaTek Dimensity 1200-vivo chip to provide unrivalled CPU and GPU performance. These power-efficient integrated processors allow users to get the most out of 5G connectivity [1], while LPDDR4X and UFS 3.1 help provide quick sequential reading and writing speeds.

In terms of battery capacity, the X70 comes with a 4400 mAh (TYP) battery while the X70 Pro comes with a slightly larger 4450 mAh (TYP) battery. Both devices support 44W FlashCharge with vivo's charger which is included in the box. Users can charge up to 64% in 30 minutes, keeping the devices ready to go anytime anywhere. The X70 Pro and X70 devices are outfitted with 6.56-inch AMOLED displays (industry-leading E5 AMOLED for X70 Pro and E4 AMOLED for X70) that can peak at 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz response rate for smooth scrolling and viewing. Both devices support HDR10+ for video playback and are certified by SGS Eye Care Display and SGS Seamless Pro.

Perennial Design and Futuristic Construct

vivo has gone all out on the X70 series 5G and spared no efforts in ensuring timeless style with a formidable build to create the ultimate professional photography flagship smartphone. Fluorite AG – a revolutionary industrial design process developed by vivo – has been utilised to shroud the X70 series 5G devices in crystallised glass with a prismatic surface that exudes fluorescent effects under the light.


The vivo X70 series 5G comes in two colours, Aurora Dawn and Cosmic Black

The X70 Pro and X70 models are available in Aurora Dawn and Cosmic Black colourways. The Aurora Dawn colour pays homage to the iridescent radiance of the Northern Lights in the polar sky. Meanwhile, the Cosmic Black colour is inspired by the exuberant vitality of the universe, symbolic of vast and deep darkness dotted by glittering silver hues to represent the stars during a pitch-black night.
