After making the 5G-capable Exynos 980 official last September, Samsung and vivo jointly announced in China that the processor will be used to power the latter’s upcoming X30 premium mid-range phone. With this announcement, vivo will be the third brand to use Exynos processors— the other two being Motorola and Meizu.
Key features of the Exynos 980 include an 8nm process, two Cortex-A77 cores clocked at 2.2Ghz, six Cortez-A55 cores clocked at 1.8Ghz, Mali-G76 MP5 GPU, and integrated 5G modem with support for dual-mode 5G.
vivo teased that they will launch the X30 in December, though details remain scarce. According to the latest rumors, the X30 will have a 6.5-inch AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate, up to 8GB RAM, up to 256GB internal storage, and a 4500mAh battery with 22.5w wired charging.
For the cameras, it will have a 32-megapixel front camera and a quad rear camera setup: 64-megapixel main camera, 13-megapixel telephoto camera, 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, and 2-megapixel depth sensor.
