Vivo seems to be gearing up to launch a new mid-range smartphone with an unannounced MediaTek chipset. Earlier today, a new Vivo handset dubbed as Vivo 1802 was spotted on Geekbench sporting MediaTek’s yet announced MT6765 SoC. The mystery smartphone has managed to score 828 points in the single-core and 3610 points in the multi-core test, which suggests that the phone packs some entry-level hardware.
Vivo 1802: Geekbench
Delving into the details of the mystery Vivo phone found on the Geekbench listing, the device is equipped with an octa-core MediaTek MT6765 SoC that’s been clocked at a relatively modest 2GHz. As of now, the Taiwanese chipset giant hasn’t announced any processor that fits this bill, but we can guess that this new SoC is the iteration of MediaTek’s MT6750 or Helio P23 SoC (MT6763T). Coming back to the phone’s specs, we can see that the handset is equipped with 3GB of RAM and is powered by Android 8.1 Oreo mobile operating system. There’s no doubt that the smartphone will offer company’s Funtouch skin on top based on this latest version of Android, as is the case with all Vivo smartphones.
As of now, these are the only details we could glean out of the listing. Other specifications, in particular about the phone’s display size, camera configuration, and other details about battery capacity and colours will be apparent once the handset manages to pass TENAA certification in China. So keep your eyes peeled because we will keep you posted on the latest developments for this yet unannounced Vivo handset.
Just a few days ago, two new Vivo handsets dubbed as Vivo Y75s and Vivo Y83 were spotted on TENAA. The former is supposed to ship with a 5.99-inch (720×1440 resolution) FullView 2.5D curved HD+ display (18:9 aspect ratio), whereas the latter could sport 6.22-inch FullView 2.5D curved display in the 19:9 aspect ratio. Both smartphones are expected to come with 4GB of RAM, 64GB internal storage, and 13-megapixel rear-facing camera unit.
There’s no word from the Chinese smartphone maker as to when the Vivo Y75s is heading out to the market, but we can expect it to launch soon considering that it has already received the requisite TENAA certificate in their home ground of China.
