Vivo T2x is now officially listed on the company’s website with all the details and the price, so it is safe to say that the phone has officially launched. This is a mid-range phone from the brand that succeeds the Vivo T1x. The Vivo T1x had the Dimensity 900 SOC, 44W fast charging, and more. Interestingly, the successor is priced the same as the predecessor. Like the T1x, the T2x starts at ¥1599, which translates to around $240. And there are some significant upgrades this time.
First thing first, the design of the Vivo T2x isn’t awe-inspiring since, even in 2022, the phone comes with a waterdrop notch and a big bottom bezel. This would’ve been no issue for a budget phone, but since the T2x is a mid-range device, this is something to consider. The fingerprint scanner is present on the side. There is a 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom and a Type-C port.
The display on the front is a 6.58-inch LCD with Full-HD+ resolution & up to 144Hz refresh rate. In comparison, the Vivo T1x had a 120Hz display. This also results in a higher touch-sampling rate of 240Hz (vs. 180Hz). The panel offers up to 650 nits brightness. The waterdrop notch on top houses a 16MP selfie camera.
Perhaps the biggest upgrade is in the performance and battery. This is due to the MediaTek Dimensity 1300 SOC under the hood, which offers a significant performance boost over the Dimensity 900 of the Vivo T1x. The Dimensity 1300 is the same chip that powers OnePlus Nord 2T & Oppo Reno 8. There is LPDDR4X RAM and UFS 3.1 storage.
As for the battery, there is now a massive 6,000mAh battery inside, which can charge quickly via the 44W fast charger. So, while the charging speed remains the same, Vivo T2x gets a bigger battery than T1x.
In terms of rear cameras, there is a 50MP primary sensor with an f/1.8 lens and a 2MP depth sensor. So, it is safe to say that the main focus is on performance, not on camera or display. The phone also has NFC, which the Vivo T1x did not have.
Considering the same starting price as last year, there is undoubtedly nothing to complain about. Yes, the design is not of 2022 standards, but this phone focuses on offering the best performance for the price.
Here is the pricing for China –
8GB + 128GB – ¥1599 (~$240 | ~₹18,500)
8GB + 256GB – ¥1799 (~$270 | ~₹21,000)
We won’t be surprised if this phone comes to other markets as an iQOO device.
The pre-orders have already started in China and the phone will start shipping on the June 6th.
