I'm considering purchasing this, but Im worried about vivo policy of not supporting unlock because it requires root. so think unlocking is realistically difficult?

I don't know much about x90+ but considering that unlock was only possible on X80 pro on the 1st version of W10 models (12.0.10.5) using modified software and requiring some kind of 'hack' (sending 2 files at the same time from 2 terminals) and that this exploit was fixes basically for every single release after, I'd say that root isn't going to happen on x90 (at least not using the same method)

Would it be possible to flash gapps without unlock?
I am really thinking about buying the Chinese version. I will keep the original os (no root) but I would need at least to install gapps. Possible?

Unless Pervokur pulls another one of his magic tricks bootloader unlock will NOT be possible.
Besides that, converting your device from OriginOS to Funtouch bares a huge brick risk and certain things are not working on the x70 pro+.

I am considering purchasing x90 pro+ and the Xiaomi 13 Pro. However, I think I will have to purchase it with Xiaomi 13 Pro because of the unlock.
Same here, althouh side by side the Vivo seems to be a superior device to the Xiaomi.

Have you purchased it? I am also considering buying it from China. Need unlock, root and lineage on it
As will I. I'm not going to go through another two years of not having root access to a device that cost me over AU$1200 to buy outright.

I'm confident one of the developers here will create a rooting solution soon, if they haven't already, especially when from all the reviews I've seen so far about the X90 Pro+ IMHO it's going to be one of the top five selling smartphones this year.

    I don't own device with origin os, also I'm too lazy to dig my fun touch phone farther (lol, I didn't even try to manipulate device with AT commands [atcid_factory and others binaries]. Since people can install com.vivo.vtool then you can try to dig firmware with uid1000. First step is to analyze all *.rc scripts and what can you do with setprop.

    Can someone who already owns the device confirm whether "OK Google" or "Android auto" work with the device?
    It's not working. Same with Google maps timeline.

    I'm pretty sure we won't see any rooting / bootloader unlock on Vivo X90 anytime. Internationally the X90 and X90 pro will not sell at all, due to being overpriced like crazy. And in China other phones seem to be selling much better too. The x90 pro+ will be rather exotic - Vivo mainly sells cheap stuff in China. Samsung, Apple, Oppo and Xiaomi are the main brands for flagships in China.

    But currently vivo has amongst the worst and unreliable OS which exists. Even rooting won't solve this as on a custom ROM camera won't work well.
    Google and Apple demonstrate that mid level hardware with good software beats best hardware...

    Samsung Galaxy ultra are hardware wise usually also top of the game (so far they just suffered from the Samsung node processors).

    And Samsung has a reliable update policy, while vivo after 2 years already goes haywire with infrequent updates on flagships

    If you are european, careful. Check you carrier bands as Xiaomi tends to miss at least one major 4G band lately.
