At a joint press conference with Samsung in China, vivo announced that the X30 will arrive in December with Exynos 980 SoC and 5G support.
The Exynos 980 SoC was unveiled in early September and is the world’s first mid-range chipset with an integrated 5G modem. It supports dual-mode 5G and promises download speeds of up to 2.55Gbps. And, with 4G and 5G downlinks combined, it can reach speeds of up to 3.55Gbps.
The Exynos 980 SoC is built on the 8nm FinFET process and consists of two Cortex-A77 cores clocked at 2.2GHz and six Cortex-A55 cores running at 1.8GHz.
The chipset comes with the Mali-G76 MP5 GPU to handle graphically intensive tasks like gaming and photo and video editing.
vivo didn’t reveal any other specifications of the X30, but rumor has it that it will boast a 6.5″ AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. It will come with up to 8GB RAM and 256GB storage, and pack a 4,500 mAh battery with 22.5W or 30W fast charging.
For photography, the vivo X30 will sport a 32MP camera on the front, and the back will house a quad camera setup (64MP+13MP+8MP+2MP).
vivo will also launch a Pro variant of the X30, which is rumored to sport a 6.89″ 90Hz AMOLED screen, have up to 12GB of RAM onboard, and pack a 4,500 mAh battery with 44W fast charge support.
In terms of optics, the X30 Pro will retain the 32MP selfie camera, but the quad camera setup on the back will be a combination of a 60MP, 12MP, and two 13MP units.
More details about the X30 duo should surface in the coming weeks.
