Vivo X Note: Vivo launches a tablet and telephone the size of a tablet today. Vivo X note is very large with a 7 “screen and the round side cannot make the device you use with one hand. If you want to go bigger and maybe add a QWERTY stylus and keyboard, the Vivo pad has covered.
Vivo X Note
Juggernaut has a 7 “Samsung E5 AMOLED Display with QHD + resolution, which gives you a lot of space for multitasking. This screen has an unusual aspect ratio of 21:10 (resolution of 3,080 x 1,440 px), but Vivo believes this is superior to media consumption And multitasking. It shouldn’t surprise you, but DisplayMate gives a record + score. The screen promises 1,500 nits brightness of the peak and the coverage of DCI-P3 at 112%.
Hidden behind the scenes is a large ultrasonic fingerprint reader (3D Sonic Max from Qualcomm), as in Iqoo 8 Pro. FP Reader is very large so it can read two fingerprints at the same time – actually, only that if you want more security (two fingerprints increase the security by 50,000 times compared to only one, Vivo said). To help with colour accuracy, there is a colour temperature sensor installed on the front.
Fingerprint readers on Vivo X Note can read two moulds simultaneously for extra security
Return to multitasking, Vivo X Note records are powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, there is no surprise here. The basic configuration has 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage so you can play poker online freely. You can get a unit with 12GB RAM instead or exit with version 12/512GB. Security is enhanced using the “Safe processing unit” (SPU) on the Snapdragon chip (first time for the company).
The chipset is cooled by a large steam room (47,132 mm²) and graphite sheets. Borrowing from Iqoo Playbook once again, the GPU output can be fed through the MEMC algorithm to increase the frame rate without adding extra load on the GPU.
The Vivo X Note has a 5,000 mAh battery with 80W wired and 50W wireless charging
The note came carrying a quad-camera behind. It features 50MP ISOCELL GN1 – 1 / 1.3 “, original pixels 1.2μm, 2.4μm with binning. Combined with a bright F / 1.57 aperture, this camera will excel in low light photography. The Zeiss logo tucked into the corner cannot escape, the lens is officially branded “Zeiss Vario-Tessar” and has an anti-reflective layer.
There is also a periscope on board with a 125mm focal length (aperture f / 3.4), which is 5x optical enlargement (and up to 60x digital zoom). For medium distance zoom and portrait, there is a 12 MP module (IMX663) with a lens of 47 mm (F / 2.0), which functions to the magnification of 2x In addition, there is a 48 MP Ultra Wide-Angle Camera with 14 mm lens (114 °). All of this is supported by the Special Vivo V1 ISP, which has enough strength to run facial detection even if you take a photo of a group of 30 people.
Rather disappointing, the battery that makes this Behemoth rather small – only has a capacity of 5,000 mAh. It’s fast to charge at 80W via wire and at 50W wirelessly, but we still expect more than a large device intended for electricity users.
The Note is available in three colours: Blue, Black and Gray. All three have a leather texture with faux stitching on the back, plus a full-width camera panel similar to the Vivo X70 Pro+ (and presumably the upcoming X80 Pro+).
The base Vivo X Note (8/256 GB) starts at CNY 6,000 ($940/€865/₹71,400). Getting 12 GB of RAM is CNY 500 extra, the fully loaded 12/512 GB model is CNY 7,000 ($1,100/€1,010/₹83,400). Additionally, you can pick up a 50W wireless charger for CNY 100 (until April 24, $16/€14/₹1,200). Also, Vivo Care is temporarily discounted and is CNY 470 for the Vivo X Note ($74/€68/₹5,600).
