Vivo has already released 5G smartphones; now, it seems they are going for a third. A device called the "vivo V1963A" has appeared on Geekbench. Aspects of its processor match those found in a similar leak that may pertain to the Realme X50 5G, which will launch with the Snapdragon 765G processor.

Vivo has already released the X30 and X30 Pro, which support dual-band 5G thanks to their Exynos 980 chipsets. However, it appears the OEM may be hedging its bets by developing at least 1 more device with a processor from a different manufacturer that also supports this emerging radio standard.

This processor would be Qualcomm's Snapdragon 765G, which connects to 5G via its inbuilt X52 modem. It may have appeared on the benchmarking site Geekbench in what could be called incognito. It has no motherboard-associated code-name (such as the Snapdragon 665's "trinket"), but does have a novel and specific identifier: ARM implementer 81 architecture 8 variant 15 part 2052 revision 14.

Otherwise, the 765G may reveal itself through its base clock (1.8GHz). This processor has most recently featured in Geekbench 4 results for a new device calling itself the vivo V1936A. This model number matches that of the OEM's normal naming conventions well.

The putative new Vivo phone has only 6GB of RAM, although it does run Android 10. Therefore, should this be a real upcoming product, it may be pitched at a lower tier compared to the X30 series while still offering 5G. On that note, its Geekbench scores measure up comparably to those of what is most likely the Realme X50. Therefore, this upcoming mid-ranger may have acquired impending competition even before it gets released.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
