Introducing vivo X Note – 7 inch monster with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor
What on first encounter with X Note What attracts attention most of all is naturally the large size and dimensions of this model, which shows more dimensions even compared to the biggest current phones in the market; The length and width of the device are 168.78 and 80.3 mm, respectively, which can be compared with Galaxy S22 Ultra is also a few millimeters different. Vivo has a relatively acceptable performance in terms of thickness, and the thickness of the X Note, depending on the color of the phone, is 8.37 mm ( in the black version) and 8.75 mm (in blue and gray colors). While big phones like Galaxy S22 Ultra and iPhone 13 Pro Max with its screens 6.8 and 6.7-inch ones weigh 228 and 240 grams respectively, a much higher weight is expected from a 7-inch phone like X Note; In practice, the weight of 216 grams of this phone seems even light for a 7-inch model.
X Note is offered in three colors, blue, gray and black, the first two colors, gray and blue, use a leather-like cover, but the black color is designed in a simple way. The form of the rear cameras is completely similar to X Fold and the same area A large circle on the left side with the Zeiss logo and LED arrows can be seen on the other side. The body of the phone with the IP68 standard is resistant to the penetration of clear water for 30 minutes up to a depth of 1.5 meters, which makes it next to +X70 Pro becomes one of the few Vivo phones with this possibility.
On the left side, there is a physical Mute button, which is from another brand BBK family means One Plus is borrowed and in X Fold was also present.
The 7-inch screen of the device is an AMOLED sample of the Samsung E5 type, with a resolution of 1440×3080 pixels or 2K, and an unusual and fully stretched aspect ratio of 21:10. This panel is of LTPO type and thus its 120 Hz refresh rate can be reduced to very small amounts for optimal energy consumption depending on the type of content. This 10-bit screen, which received an A+ rating from the DisplayMate reference site, naturally supports HDR10+ content display, and its touch sampling rate reaches 240Hz. Contrast of 8,000,000:1, maximum spot brightness of 1,500nits and coverage of 112% of the DCI-P3 color gamut are other things mentioned about this panel.
The charms of this screen do not end with mentioning the specifications of the panel and you can still find more details in This part mentioned; Above the screen, there is a 16-megapixel f/2.45 selfie camera in the central punch hole, which can also be used for facial recognition. The fingerprint sensor is located at the bottom of the screen, which is an advanced Ultrasonic Qualcomm is selected and its area is so large that you can practically define two different fingers for it at the same time. This method, called Vivo, is nearly 50 thousand times more secure than identifying a single finger, thus providing higher security. brings to users.
In the back part of the phone, we encounter four cameras in a circular area, all of which have automatic focus, and the Zeiss mark in this part also means the presence of T* anti-reflection coating and some dedicated imaging modes. The main camera of the phone is a 50-megapixel model with a 1/1.3-inch Samsung GN1 sensor, which was previously used in the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, and its relatively large 1.2-micron cells after a quadruple combination measure 2.4 microns in resolution. They achieve 12 megapixels. The front lens of this camera has a very good f/1.57 aperture, and OIS or optical image stabilization is also included in its list of features. This camera achieves 8K video recording. The second camera in this collection is a 48-megapixel ultrawide model with a Sony IMX598 sensor, whose f/2.2 lens captures a 114-degree field of view.
The third camera is a 12-megapixel telephoto sensor with a Sony IMX663 sensor and a focal length of 47 mm, which creates an equivalent image. 2x optical zoom is an ideal tool for taking portraits. The lens aperture of this camera is f/1.98. The fourth camera is an 8-megapixel periscopic telephoto model with a focal length of 125mm that offers 5x optical zoom and 60x digital zoom. Support for OIS and f/3.4 lens aperture are other features of this camera.
Processing in X Note naturally with a 4 nm processor Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 will be 1 3 GHz core Cortex-X2 with 3 2.5 GHz cores Cortex-A710 and 4 cores of 1.8 GHz Cortex-A510 and its graphic processing is done with Adreno 730. The RAM of the device is 8 or 12 GB of LPDDR5 type and it has 256 or 512 GB of non-upgradable internal memory of UFS 3.1 type. The ISP or video signal processor of the device is considered to be of the exclusive type of vivo V1, which was previously mentioned in X70 Pro and +X70 Pro too was used This ISP has undertaken some image processing, including in the field of artificial intelligence, and according to the manufacturer, it has a faster and less efficient performance than the main processor in this field.
Another interesting point in the X Note structure is the security processing unit or SPU of the device. which was implemented in cooperation with Qualcomm and stores sensitive user information such as passwords in a dedicated hardware unit.
The heat dissipation system in this phone forms an area of 47,132 square millimeters, which includes heat transfer graphite sheets, vapor chamber and gels. They become thermal.
While a larger battery is expected from a 7-inch phone, Vivo apparently opted for a 5,000mAh battery to prevent the device’s weight from increasing too much. The ampere hour is enough in X Note. The battery is powered by an 80W wired charger, which Vivo claims only takes 32 minutes to charge. Wireless charging is also available in this phone, the charger must be purchased separately, and the maximum power it supports will be 50 watts. 10W reverse wireless charging is also available on the X Note.
Stereo speaker, X-axis linear vibration motor, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC connection and infrared port are other notable things about this phone. Naturally, the headset jack has no place in this model.
vivo X Note with operating system Android 12 and The OriginOS user interface will be offered to the Chinese market at prices of 5,999, 6,499 and 6,999 yuan (with the current exchange rate of 942, 1,020 and 1,099 US dollars respectively) for 12GB/256GB, 8GB/256GB and 12GB/512GB memory.
