At a joint press conference with Samsung in China, Vivo announced a new device, the X30, that’s set to arrive in December. The Vivo X30 packs the mid-range Exynos 980 SoC and 5G support, making it the first device from Vivo to feature the Samsung chipset.
The chipset was revealed in early September and is the first mid-range chipset with an integrated 5G modem. The Exynos 980 supports dual-mode 5G and said to have download speeds of up to 2.55Gbps. It can reach speeds of up to 3.55Gbps with 4G and 5G combined.
Along with the chipset comes the Mali-G76 MP5 GPU that can handle gaming as well as photo and video editing.
Vivo has yet to reveal the other specs of the X30 but it is rumored to have a 6.5-inch AMOLED display with 90Hz refresh rate. It is also speculated to have up to 8GB RAM and 256GB storage with a 4500mAh battery with either 22.5W or 30W fast charging.
The Vivo X30 is expected to have a 32MP front camera and a quad-camera setup in the rear with 64MP in the helm. Joining the 64MP shooter are 13MP, 8MP, and 2MP lenses.
A second version of the X30, a Pro variant is also said to be unveiled. The Pro version is expected to have 6.89-inch AMOLED panel with 90Hz refresh rate. It shares the same 4500mAh battery but with 44W fast charging support and up to 12GB of RAM.
As far as the camera goes, the X30 Pro is said to share the 32MP front shooter but a more powerful quad-camera setup. It is still headlined by a 64MP lens but this time is accompanied by 12MP and a pair of 13MP lenses.
Much of the specs are rumors and speculations, so take them with a grain of salt. It still makes for an exciting mid-ranger though and we can’t wait for the Vivo X30 this December!
