Although tomorrow's conference is expected to focus on the introduction of Samsung's dual-mode 5G AI chipset, Vivo is also supposed to unveil the Exynos 980-driven X30 phablet. Its specs will allegedly include a 90 Hz 6.5-inch AMOLED display, a 64 MP quad main camera, as well as a 32 MP selfie shooter.

Chinese customers will soon be able to grab the Vivo X30 and X30 Pro, both being expected to be fully 5G-compatible. By the end of next year, the Chinese OEM has plans to release no less than 5 handsets that would fully benefit from the 5G standard. Obviously, the lack of 5G coverage in most markets/areas of the world is another discussion that we will skip for the time being.

Leaving the Samsung Exynos 980 chipset aside, the upcoming Vivo X30 is rumored to come in 128 and 256 GB UFS 2.1 storage variants, both with a 6.5-inch AMOLED 90 Hz display, a 64 + 13 + 8 + 2 MP rear camera, a 32 MP front image shooter, a 4,500 mAh battery with 22.5 or 33 W fast charging, as well as an undisclosed amount of memory, most likely 6 or 8 GB.

These being said, we can only wait for tomorrow's media conference that Vivo will hold in Beijing. If these upcoming handsets will be priced reasonably and available in large quantities outside of Asia, should Xiaomi fear Vivo or not? After all, the brand-new Xiaomi CC9 Pro is not going to remain the king of the budget-friendly (kind of) mid-range premium sector for ages.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
