The Vivo X70 Pro features a stunning 6.56″ FHD+ E5 AMOLED screen with a high refresh rate of 120Hz. The curved panel is HDR10+ certified and sees the protection of SCHOTT Xensation Up glass on the front. Despite weighing a mere 184 grams and being just 7.99mm thick, the phone does come with an AG matte glass back and a metal frame.
MediaTek Dimensity 1200 5G is what the Vivo X70 Pro draws power from, and with that, there’s up to 12GB LPDDR4x RAM paired with 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. Being a 5G phone, it supports four 5G bands, and the phone also features an extended RAM feature of up to 4GB. Lastly, it runs on FuntouchOS 12 based on Android 11 out of the box.

The more professional-looking Vivo X70 Pro+ houses a much-advanced screen. It comes with a curved 6.78″ WQHD+ E5 AMOLED LTPO display. Yes, it might sound astounding, but that’s how the display feels. WQHD+ means the panel features 3200 x 1440 pixels, and LTPO implies it can adjust its refresh rate automatically, the maximum being 120Hz and the lowest being 1Hz. On top of all, the screen is HDR10+ certified and can showcase over a billion colors, or in short, it’s a 10-bit display.

The 5nm SoC has an integrated Adreno 660 GPU, and the handset features an extended RAM feature up to an additional 4GB.
