Set to be an affordable 5G mid-range device
vivo is no stranger in using Samsung’s Exynos processors on its phones. To date, vivo has the X30 and S6, both using an Exynos 980 processor. With more brands pushing for affordable 5G phones, vivo is doing the same with the upcoming Y70s 5G that is powered by an Exynos 880 processor.
While the processor is yet to be announced, Digital Chat Station reveals that the Exynos 880 is similar to the Exynos 980 as both have two Cortex-A77 cores and six Cortex-A55 cores. They differ from one another as the Exynos 880’s Cortex-A77 cores run at 2.0Ghz compared to the 2.2Ghz clock rate of the Exynos 980’s Cortex-A77 cores.
Both Exynos 880 and Exynos 980 use the same Mali-G76 GPU, though it is not clear if the former will use a lower-clocked version.
Going back to the Y70s, the mid-range phone is confirmed to have 18w wired charging and should be more affordable than the S6.
