This doesn’t come as a huge surprise, as a couple of last year’s predecessors to the series (the Vivo X60 and Vivo X60 Pro) also held the same Exynos chip within Asia, while a Snapdragon 870-fitted counterpart was sold internationally. It’s possible that this high-tier version of the Vivo X70 Pro, the one carrying the Exynos 1080, could be limited to China as well, although that remains to be seen.
The 5nm Exynos 1080 sits at the top of the line of high-tier Samsung processors, featuring 8 processing cores: one ARM Cortex-A78 at 2.84 Ghz, three ARM Cortex-A78 at 2.6Ghz, and four ARM Cortex-A55 at 2Ghz. Most of these cores actually beat out the Snapdragon 888 in clock cycles, although the competing chipsets have the same core count.
While the chipset on the Vivo X70 Pro (and perhaps the X70/X70 Pro+, although we don’t know yet) is the same as the one that powered last year’s Vivo X60/X60 Pro, the X70 Pro doesn’t come without some great improvements.
Leaked Vivo X70 Pro render
First of all, Vivo’s newly announced in-house V1 imaging circuit chip is expected to debut in the Vivo X70 series, for a better user experience when it comes to imaging (such as photography) applications.
The screen should be a Samsung-made 6.56-inch Super AMOLED E5 supporting 120Hz and Full HD+. A modern under-display fingerprint sensor is also part of the package.
RAM and storage are expected to be offered in 8GB/12GB variants, and 128GB or 256GB, respectively. As for its power, the X70 Pro will come with 44W fast charging and a battery capacity of 4,500mAh.
