Vivo is gearing up to launch its X70 Pro series and as per a report by SamMobile, Vivo will be using Samsung’s Exynos 1080 chipset to power the device. Last year, Vivo had opted for the Exynos 1080 chipset for the Vivo X60 and Vivo X60 Pro smartphones in China. However, for the international market, Vivo had offered the phones with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chipset. It could be possible that Vivo only uses the Exynos 1080 chipset for handsets sold in China only this time as well.
The 5nm process based Exynos 1080 chipset is one of the most powerful chipsets from Samsung featuring an octa-core processor at a maximum clock speed of 2.84GHz. There’s support for 5G connectivity as well.
Interestingly, Vivo has said that the Vivo X70 series will come with the company’s self-developed V1 image chip. This new claims to improve the image quality and will also enhance night video shooting capabilities.
Meanwhile, Vivo has confirmed that it will launch the Vivo X70 series of smartphones in China on 9 September. The company will launch three smartphones under the series — Vivo X70, Vivo X70 Pro and Vivo X70 Pro+. The new Vivo X series smartphone will feature a quad-rear camera setup which will also include a periscope lens. The rear camera will be accompanied by a triple LED flash.
A teaser image shown by the company confirms that the new Vivo X70 series of smartphones will house a Zeiss optics camera with T coating, and ZEISS VARIO TESSAR 1.57-3.4 aperture / 14-125 ASPH lens.
