The Qualcomm Snapdragon 768G is a new 5G mobile processor that has to date appeared in only 1 phone: the Redmi K30 Racing Edition. However, new leaks suggest Vivo is preparing alternatives in the form of the X50 and X50 Pro. They are thought to have rectangular rear cameras and punch-hole displays.

Vivo has released an impressive array of 5G phones this year, from the premium-tier iQOO Neo3 to the more mid-range Z6. This is because it seems better inclined to take up more of the chipsets that support this connectivity compared to other OEMs. Now, there are rumors that it intends to keep this record by taking up the new Snapdragon 768G.

The company in question has indeed started to hype a new series of mobile devices called X50. This has led to speculation that they will rock the 768G, although there is no guarantee this will pan out for sure at this point.

More concrete X50 leaks include what may be hastily-snapped images of what may be its promos in various settings, an apparent Vivo staff meeting included. The blurry photos show a phone with a rectangular rear camera module, that seems to house 4 or even 5 sensors. The device also has a single punch-hole camera in its display.

Furthermore, 2 new products recently added to the 3C regulatory database are now thought to be the X50 and X50 Pro. They are only known by the model numbers V2001A and V2005A on this site, which are admittedly convincingly Vivo-like.

Then again, there is a third device, the V2002A, on 3C that has also been linked to the novel Exynos 880 processor on Geekbench. It has 18 watt (W) charging, whereas the other 2 may ship with 33W power bricks.

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.
