A couple of days back, images and entire specs of vivo X60t leaked. The leak revealed this handset to be exactly the same as the regular vivo X60 with a different chipset, just like the recently released vivo S7t and vivo S7. Now, this phone has quietly launched in China as an offline exclusive model.
vivo X60t Specifications and Features
The newly launched vivo X60t features a similar design and specs as the standard vivo X60 except for the chipset. Unlike the original model, the new one comes powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 1100 SoC instead of a Samsung Exynos 1080 SoC.
Also, it is only sold in a single 8GB + 128GB (UFS 3.1) storage variant and is only available in two colors (Huacai, Force). For comparison, the regular vivo X60 not only comes in three storage configurations but also three colors.
Apart from the above-mentioned dissimilarities, the new vivo X60t with model number V2085A sports the exact same set of specs as the normal vivo X60. Hence, it flaunts a 6.56-inch FHD+ (2376 x 1080 pixels) centered punch hole AMOLED display with a 19.8:9 aspect ratio, 6000000:1 contrast ratio, 92.76% screen-to-body ratio, 100% DCI-P3 color gamut, and HDR10/HDR10+ certifications.
The device includes a triple camera setup on the back consisting of a 48MP primary sensor with OIS, a 13MP sensor with a 2x telephoto lens, and a 13MP sensor with a 120˚ ultra-wide-angle lens. The main highlight of this setup is that they feature Zeiss optics and tuning. As for selfies and video calls, the phone comes with a 32MP sensor on the front punch hole.
On the connectivity front, the handset supports dual-SIM, 5G, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, and GNSS (BeiDou, GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO, QZSS). It also has all the essential sensors, such as an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, compass, proximity sensor, gyroscope, and color temperature sensor. But unfortunately, the smartphone lacks a 3.5mm headphone jack and a MicroSD card slot.
vivo X60t Price and Availability
The vivo X60t is priced at ¥3,498 ($533) in China. It is already on sale in the country. Unlike the other vivo X60 series smartphone, this model is exclusive to offline channels.
As of now, there’s no information on vivo X60t’s availability outside mainland China.

European Union could force all smartphone manufacturers to use USB-C charging – MobileSyrup
Europe could soon require all smartphone manufacturers to use USB-C charging, according to a new EU Commission ruling proposal.
The commission says the proposal aims to reduce e-waste and the “consumer inconvenience” resulting from different chargers. The commission also mentions that it wants manufacturers to stop selling chargers alongside electronic devices to minimize e-waste further.
“With today’s proposal… USB-C will become the standard port for all smartphones, tablets, cameras, headphones, portable speakers and handheld videogame consoles,” reads the report.
The report then says that it has reduced the number of mobile chargers in Europe from 30 to just three, with Apple’s proprietary Lightning port part of the smaller list. The report states that roughly 20 percent of devices sold in Europe feature the Lightning port, but that the EU wants to change this — possibly by forcing Apple to adopt USB-C.
EU executive vice president Margrethe Vestager made the following statement in the report:
“European consumers were frustrated long enough about incompatible chargers piling up in their drawers. We gave industry plenty of time to come up with their own solutions, now time is ripe for legislative action for a common charger. This is an important win for our consumers and environment and in line with our green and digital ambitions.”
As you may have already guessed, Apple has resisted the shift to USB-C in the past concerning the EU’s efforts. For example, last year, when the organization voted on the concept of a standard charger, Apple released a statement stating that adopting USB-C would “stifle innovation.”
In a statement to the BBC, Apple said, “We remain concerned that strict regulation mandating just one type of connector stifles innovation rather than encouraging it, which in turn will harm consumers in Europe and around the world.”
With the release of the iPhone 12, Apple stopped including a charging brick in the box of its smartphones, citing environmental concerns related to materials and shipping costs. This move also likely saved the tech giant a lot of money. The company has also shifted to USB-C charging with several of its other devices, including Macs, most iPad models and its accompanying ecosystem of accessories. Some Android devices from companies like Samsung, for example, also no longer include chargers in their boxes.
It’s unclear if this law will go through, given it’s still in the proposal stages and must first be passed by lawmakers and several governments. However, it’s possible that in a few years, Apple could be forced to adopt USB-C for the iPhones it sells in Europe.

U.S. social audio app Clubhouse launches ‘wave’ feature for private chats
U.S. social audio app Clubhouse launched a feature on Thursday to let users virtually wave at friends inside its audio-only chat app to show they are open to a private chat, in a move to expand beyond public rooms that can have thousands of listeners.
Clubhouse, which pioneered the “social audio” feature that has since been copied by Facebook and Twitter, wants to enable users to have private chats, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Paul Davison told Reuters.
“A lot of people know us for bigger conversations, but the reason people stay so long is they’re finding their friends and meeting new people,” he said in an interview.
Users of Clubhouse, which is backed by venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz, can “wave” at friends online in the app and a private audio chat room will open when a person accepts the wave. The user can then invite more contacts into the private room, or choose to open the chat to the public, Clubhouse said.
