vivo X90 series global rollout is about to start
Update: We have confirmation that the X90 Pro+ isn't launching for now. At least not in Malaysia. It remains to be seen if it will be released in global markets or remain exclusive to China.
Original story: The vivo X90 series smartphones unveiled in China last November is rumored to make its global debut on January 31. vivo hasn't confirmed the date yet, but its Malaysian branch has announced that the X90 lineup is coming to the Southeast Asian country soon.
The vivo X90 series consists of three smartphones - X90, X90 Pro, and X90 Pro+. The press note we received suggests the Chinese brand will only launch the X90 and X90 Pro in Malaysia.
vivo hasn't explicitly mentioned the Pro+ anywhere, and the event page set up on vivo Malaysia's website only shows the Pro model. The top-end Pro+ is nowhere to be seen in the promo campaign. However, one of the teasers shared by vivo hint at a periscope telephoto camera, which you only get with the X90 Pro+, casting some doubt.

The vivo X90 Pro+ is the most exciting smartphone among the X90 trio, with key highlights being the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, 50MP primary camera using a 1” IMX989 sensor, and a 6.78" 120Hz 1,440p curved LTPO4 AMOLED display.

All I have heard is problems with the 12S which is why it didn't get a global release (because no one in China complains). So I don't really have much faith in the 13 Ultra.

€200 is about US$215 if we take the exchange rate in July 2022 when the Vivo launched in Europe. In Malaysia and surrounding ASEAN countries, the difference was around US$250. So, the price difference actually quite uniform between Asia and Europe.

Mark my words, they'll bring the X90 Pro+ in India when the X90 series goes global, meaning you'll just import the Pro+ when you live in Europe or something
