Vivo already has a number of 5G phones like the NEX 3 5G and iQOO Pro 5G to its name but they only support single-band 5G. That, however, will change with Vivo X30 5G, the company’s first dual-band 5G smartphone with support for SA (standalone) and NSA (non-standalone) networks. This upcoming smartphone by Vivo is slated to launch on December 16 according to a new teaser posted by the brand on social media this morning.
Vivo surprised everyone with a sudden announcement of the Vivo X30 at a joint conference with Samsung held in early November. The company also said the phone will be unveiled in December and will be powered by Samsung’s all-new Exynos 980 SoC that has an integrated 5G modem. Keeping up with its word, Vivo started teasing the X30 a few days back which led to the phone’s launch date reveal today. Coincidentally, the device was also spotted on Geekbench today, double confirming some of the specifications.
According to Geekbench listing and some of the teasers posted by Vivo, the forthcoming Vivo X30 5G will be powered by Samsung Exynos 980 SoC paired with 8GB of RAM. The phone will feature a quad-camera setup with a 64MP primary sensor and a periscope lens boasting 60x hybrid zoom. Also, it will have a 3.5mm headphone jack at the top which is rare in phones these days.
Interestingly, Vivo will ditch its long-time Android skin, FunTouch OS, in favour of a brand new Jovi OS with its first-ever dual-band 5G smartphone. Sadly, the phone might run Android Pie according to the Geekbench listing with model number ‘vivo V1938CT’. The phone scores 3095 single-core points and 7379 multi-core points which is not bad for a mid-range smartphone.
Going by rumours, the Vivo X30 5G will sport a 6.5-inches AMOLED display with 90Hz refresh rate. The quad-camera setup on the back will include a 64MP sensor(confirmed) coupled with 13MP, 8MP, 2MP unknown sensors. Whereas, the front camera will be of 32 megapixels like most of the Vivo phones for the past one year. Last but not least, the device is expected to feature a 4,500mAh battery with support for either 22.5W or 30W fast charging.
