The Vivo X50 Pro was the first smartphone to launch with a gimbal camera system in India. This enabled the primary camera sensor to move physically to compensate for shakes and wobbles. Vivo has now launched the Vivo X60 Pro, the successor to the X50 Pro, which claims to improve upon the original. The Vivo X60 Pro also packs in the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC, which should also help it deliver on the performance front. I put the X60 Pro through all our usual tests to see how it fares.

Vivo X60 Pro design
The Vivo X60 Pro looks similar to its predecessor, the Vivo X50 Pro (Review). While the design is essentially unchanged, this isn’t an issue since it still looks appealing. The Vivo X60 Pro has a 6.56-inch AMOLED display that curves on the sides like the older Samsung Galaxy S series smartphones. This makes the side bezels look small, giving the panel an edge-to-edge feel. The top and bottom bezels are slim, too, and Vivo has kept the selfie camera hole small, offering a minimal distraction. The display is also protected with Schott Xensation Up glass. The AMOLED display curves to meet the metallic frame of the Vivo X60 Pro.
Everything looks and feels premium. The midframe is thinner on the sides to accommodate the curved display and glass back panel. The curved display and back give the X60 Pro a sleek side profile making it comfortable to hold. I found the power and the volume buttons to be well-positioned, and reaching them wasn’t an issue.
These buttons are also made out of metal, and the power button has a textured finish which makes it easy to distinguish. There are no ports or slots on the phone’s left side, and the top only has the secondary microphone. At the bottom, the Vivo X60 Pro has its USB Type-C port, SIM tray, primary microphone, and loudspeaker.
The Vivo X60 Pro has Corning Gorilla Glass 6 on the back.
Vivo has opted for Corning Gorilla Glass 6 for the back to withstand scratches and tiny accidental drops. The back panel has a matte finish which helps keep fingerprints off the device. Vivo hasn’t changed the camera module design, which is now standard across the X series. This time, the camera module has a Zeiss logo, thanks to Vivo’s partnership with Zeiss for the camera lens.
