Vivo, the Chinese smartphone major, seems to be on a roll these days busy announcing new smartphones each passing week in China. It was just yesterday that we talked about the company’s upcoming Vivo X50 series announcement scheduled for June 1. Today, we have official confirmation about the announcement of another mid-range device called the Vivo Y70s 5G thanks to Vivo’s official Weibo page.
The company, late last night, posted an official launch teaser for the device, which also revealed key specifications of the phone. Incidentally, we had first talked about the Vivo Y70s last week after the phone appeared on Geekbench bearing the model number V2002A.
Let us take a closer look.
From the launch poster above, it is clear that the Vivo Y70s comes powered by Samsung’s Exynos 880 processor. What makes this chipset interesting is the fact that it hasn’t been officially announced by Samsung yet. Going by the naming scheme and the specs, the Exynos 880 appears to be an underclocked version of the Exynos 980 SoC and features two ARM Cortex-A77 cores clocked at 2GHz, and six ARM Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 1.8GHz. For graphics, the Exynos 880 gets the ARM Mali-G76 GPU. The ‘5G’ moniker makes it clear that the phone supports 5G networks as well. Also clearly mentioned on the launch poster is the fact that the Vivo Y70s 5G comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage.
While the display size hasn’t been mentioned, it is evident from the image that the Vivo Y70s gets a tall display that should measure well over 6.3-inches across. The panel also gets a punch-hole for the front-facing camera – the details of which we do not know yet. What we do know, however, is that the device gets a triple camera setup at the rear with the primary camera using a 48MP sensor. The handset features a large 4,500 mAh battery as well and ships with Vivo’s 18W dual-engine flash charger.
While Vivo hasn’t revealed a launch date for this device yet, we expect it to happen in the near future. We expect Vivo to reveal additional details about the phone — including its launch date – in the days to come.
