Vivo will be releasing the X70 series of smartphones on September 9th, in China and, while the company teased X70 Pro Plus’ ZEISS optics with T* coating, ZEISS VARIO TESSAR 1.57-3.4 aperture / 14-125 ASPH lens, it did not give us more information on the upcoming devices.
In spite of that, with just a few days left until launch, leaks have been spreading left and right, to the point where there’s few surprises left for us to look forward to. The most recent one comes from Chinese microblogging platform Weibo.
