It is about time for Vivo to launch its next flagship device. Vivo will launch the upcoming Vivo X70 series smartphone on 13th September. At the moment, Vivo has shared a few glances of the Vivo X70. And surprisingly, Vivo Malaysia official website also has shared the same content. It looks like Vivo Malaysia could be launching the Vivo X70 on the same day as well. Even its Lazada official store also have shared the product page.
My first impression on the design it looks similar to the previous Vivo X60 series. But the rear surface material used seems to be a rough stone surface. Here’s the first look at the Vivo X70 series smartphone.
Similar to last year, Vivo will be launching Vivo X70, X70 Pro and X70 Pro+. In Malaysia, we can expect Vivo will be launching Vivo X70 and Vivo X70 Pro. Now, let’s have a look at the rumoured specs.
