Vivo X Fold arrives on Geekbench with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and 12 GB of RAM but fails to set decent performance numbers
The Vivo X Fold has turned up on Geekbench, just a few days ahead of its official unveiling in China. One of two smartphones that Vivo will launch next week, the X Fold has a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, as does the upcoming X Note. While Geekbench confirms that the X Fold has a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, benchmarked as the vivo V2178A, Vivo has already provided this detail in its numerous teasers.
However, Geekbench adds that the X Fold will be available with 12 GB of RAM; Vivo has not commented on memory configurations yet. Based on our database, the X Fold's single-core performance is in line with that of other Snapdragon 8 Gen 1-powered devices. The spread is rather small here though, with the chipset achieving between 1,192 and 1,267 points in our tests.
It is a different story with the X Fold's multi-core performance, though. Based on the two listings uploaded so far, the X Fold only manages 3,371 points, well behind the 3,659 the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 averages (median) in our database. Also, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 has not scored less than 3,488 in Geekbench 5 multi-core.
Supposedly, Vivo will release the X Fold in India too, but only after it has revealed the device in China. Unfortunately, it remains to be seen whether Vivo has a global launch planned.
