Vivo X60: a new leak hints at an international launch for the Zeiss-enhanced phones with the Snapdragon 870 SoC

The Vivo X60 and X60 Pro are premium mid-range smartphones that are only available in China at present. However, a new leak may suggest the OEM is preparing to bring them to additional markets. Furthermore, they may be new variants of the phones with the Snapdragon 870 SoC in place of their current Exynos 1080.

The Vivo X60 and X60 Pro are interesting mobile devices, not the least because of their distinctive "gimbal" rear camera arrays that are Zeiss-branded to boot. Therefore, it is a shame that they have yet to be released worldwide. Then again, it now looks like their maker might be working on addressing this situation.

A new leak indicates that Vivo has submitted devices called the V2045 and V2046 to the Google Play Console. They are accompanied by an image that could indeed be the X60 from the front, even if this is only due to its being of an increasingly generic centrally-punch-holed display.

In addition, these device can't be the "original" X60 or X60 Pro, as these devices launched with the Exynos 1080 processor that has only heretofore been seen in those phones. Then again, the V2045 and 2046 do seem to have the Snapdragon 870 instead, which is equally interesting as it is a potentially upgraded 865 refresh and, thus, has an excellent chance of remaining competitive in 2021.

Furthermore, this is not the first time the mystery V204x series has seen the light of day. They have popped up on Geekbench before, in one of the first leaks that demonstrated the 870's ability to post scores superior to those of its immediate forebear. Moreover, the V2046 has recently made a comeback to the benchmark that more or less reprises this performance.

The final hint that this new tip does indeed point to international X60 variants is the strange effect its RAM has had on the Play Console's reporting format. According to the database, the V2045 is somehow simultaneously 8 and 11GB. This phenomenon can be explained by the presence of OriginOS, Vivo's new Android 11 skin that, as it claims, can "extrapolate" RAM by 3GB over what its hardware dictates.

Then again, the 2046 is left at approximately 12GB on the Play Console. Hopefully, this slightly confusing new leak will be cleared up soon on these new phones' debut in new markets, which might include a greater number of European countries in 2021.

(Then again, you can order the Vivo X60 Pro now on Amazon.com.)
