Vivo’s upcoming X20A appears on Geekbench with Snapdragon 660 SoC & 4GB of RAM


In roughly a week from now, Chinese smartphone maker Vivo is going to unveil its ‘flagship’ X20 and X20A smartphones at an event in Beijing. Ahead of the official unveiling, the X20A has made an appearance on the popular Geekbench benchmark database.

As most of you will be aware, Geekbench isn’t the best source of leaks, as it only lists the core specifications of a device. The Vivo X20A listing reveals the smartphone will be powered by Qualcomm’s octa-core Snapdragon 660 chipset clocked at 2.2 GHz. In case you’re confused, Geekbench reports the clock speed of the efficiency-oriented cores, which, in the Snapdragon 660’s case, are clocked at 1.84 GHz. Taking care of the graphics processing is an integrated Adreno 512 GPU, which delivers very impressive performance for a mid-range mobile GPU. The powerful octa-core SoC has been paired with 4GB of RAM for smooth multitasking performance. However, rumors suggest the X20A could come with up to 6GB of RAM, so there is a high possibility of the X20A caught on Geekbench being the base variant. In terms of software, the smartphone is currently being tested on the Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system.

Now let’s talk about the actual benchmark scores. The X20 managed an impressive 1613 points in the single-core test and 5931 points in the multi-core test. These numbers are much higher than most mid-range smartphones out there and are in fact only slightly lower than some flagship-grade smartphones.

The Vivo X20 and the X20A will feature a FullView display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, similar to the V7+ that the company launched in India recently. However, since the X20 will be positioned higher in the company’s lineup, we expect to see higher resolution panels. Both smartphones will also be equipped with a dual-camera setup at the rear, although no specific info is available yet regarding the resolution of each sensor.
