OnePlus just made a big song and dance about its collaboration with Hasselblad for the cameras on the OnePlus 9 series, and now it's the turn of sister company Vivo. One-time Sony partner Zeiss has been appointed to add some extra allure to Vivo's cameras in its X60 series, with the X60 Pro+ serving as its latest premium flagship phone.
Building on the novel gimbal camera system from the X5o Pro, Vivo has called on Zeiss for the optics in the X60 Pro+. This includes the use of its innovative T* anti-reflective coating designed to reduce glare and counter various image artifacts. You'll find four cameras on the back of this phone, comprising that 48MP gimbal-toting ultrawide, a 50MP primary sensor, plus two telephotos, one of which is a periscope lens with 5x optical zoom.

Outside the cameras, the X60 Pro+ boasts mostly top-of-the-line specs. It's powered by Snapdragon 888 with 256GB of storage and 12GB of RAM that can call on 3GB of extended RAM if necessary. The large AMOLED display features a central punch-hole cutout while the rear is finished in a sultry blue vegan leather. On the downside, features like an IP rating and wireless charging are conspicuous by their absence.
As well as the X60 Pro+, there are also two cheaper models that come with a Snapdragon 870. The X60 Pro retains the gimbal primary lens and sports the same screen, while the standard X60 has a flat display and a less impressive camera setup.
