With a good nine months’ lead-time up until now, the X-series make a comeback better than ever. Let’s scrutinise it further shall we?

  • 6.44-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 1080 x 2400 pixels, 20:9 ratio or ~409 ppi density
  • XDR display
  • Fingerprint under-display sensor (optical)

  • Triple primary camera: 64MP with f/1.8 aperture, 26mm (wide), 1/1.7", 0.8µm, PDAF, Laser AF and OIS + 32MP with f/2.0 aperture, 50mm (telephoto), 1/2.8", 0.8µm, PDAF, Laser AF, OIS and 2x optical zoom + 8MP with f/2.2 aperture, 16mm (ultrawide), 1/4", 1.12µm, LED flash, HDR and panorama
  • 32MP selfie camera with f/2.4 aperture, 26mm (wide), 1/2.8", 0.8µm and HDR

  • Non-removable Li-Po 4350 mAh battery with Fast battery charging

  • December 2019 release date
  • 3,300 Chinese Yuan or ~470 USD for 128GB internal storage variant and 3,600 Chinese Yuan or ~515 USD for 256GB internal storage variant

As you can see, the X30 is right up there with the big boys. Blessed with a large 6.44-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED screen, and XDR display that boasts 800 nits of brightness, going up to a maximum of 1,200 nits local brightness. The fingerprint on display is a very convenient way of unlocking the device.

One of the X30’s highlights is those found under the hood of this flagship. Featuring the high-end Exynos 980 chipset paired with a fast Octa-core processor, great graphics and a generous 8GB of memory.

There’s nothing in this world that will slow this beast down, as it blazes through everything that you throw at it.

Moving on to the camera aspect, the X30 comes with a fantastic 64MP+32MP+8MP triple primary camera. Vivo is well-known for its camera prowess, and here’s another perfect example of its greatness. Then there’s the 32MP selfie camera to complement your photo-taking adventure and frequent uploading to your social media.

If there’s one flaw about the X30 is the fact that there’s no expansion slot. Anyway, the 128GB or 256GB of internal storage should be more than sufficient to store all your favourite apps, games, photos and videos. You can also turn to cloud storage, should you need more space.

In terms of battery, the 4350 mAh battery capacity found on the X30 is quite large for its specs. It should have no problem to power up the device for at least a full day of charge, as you go out and about.

Finally, the 5G technology is now here with the X30. This means you get to ride on the fastest network and bandwidth available, without any limitations. It certainly is a bragging right at this moment, as there are not many smartphones that are out there with this feature.


Vivo X30 surprises us all, with a lot of wonderful features that are sure to excite. Large 6.44-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED with XDR display, state-of-the-art hardware, amazing triple primary camera, great selfie camera, large battery and the all-new 5G technology combines well. All these for a quite irresistible price.

Vivo X30 is expected to be launched by this December 2019 year-end, that will set you back by 3,300 Chinese Yuan or ~470 USD for the 128GB internal storage variant and 3,600 Chinese Yuan or ~515 USD for the 256GB internal storage variant. It will be available in Black, Peach and Light Blue colours.
