As for the Vivo X60, there are a few changes, but by and large the spec sheet remains the same. This is because the handset comes with a same size 120Hz refresh rate display, the same Exynos 1080 SoC, 32-megapixel selfie camera. But the changes start to emerge when you get to the rear set-up with the X60 getting a triple camera setup and no telephoto lens at the back. But the device gets the same 4,300mAh battery as opposed to 4,200mAh battery on Vivo X60 Pro.
