The Vivo X80 Pro+ will arrive as the successor to last year’s X70 Pro+. The launch timeline of the brand’s X-series smartphones in India usually falls in line with China. On the other hand, the iQOO Z6 will be the third Z-series device from the Vivo sub-brand.

Both Vivo and iQOO are yet to launch the X80 Pro+ and iQOO Z6, respectively in their home market or globally. There is no word on the launch timeline of these two devices, however, both are tipped to launch in India soon. Vivo is known for announcing its X-series first in China and a few weeks later in India. Hence the X80 Pro+ may first debut in the brand’s home market. The smartphone is also expected to be tagged along with standard and Pro variants. 

The Vivo X80 Pro+ launch timeline was tipped in November last year. As per a report, it was expected to debut in late January or early February which hasn’t materialised. The source further revealed that India will get only the Pro and Pro+ variant of the Vivo X80. This isn’t surprising since Vivo didn’t launch the regular X70 in the country. The Vivo X80 duo will be flagship offerings from the brand with high refresh rate display, Gimbal-OIS camera, wireless charging, and a flagship processor. 

We can expect the rumour mill to spill information on the Vivo X80 Pro+ and iQOO Z6 in the coming weeks.
