Vivo X90 Pro Plus: An alleged first trip to Geekbench with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC runs into some issues

Vivo is said to release a top-end variant for its upcoming X90 series of Android smartphones so premium that it will ship with Qualcomm's next-gen flagship mobile SoC. Now, a device with a potentially authentic model number has appeared on Geekbench with 12GB of RAM. However, the rest of the specs fail to match those of previous "Snapdragon 8 Gen 2" leaks.

The Vivo X90 series is projected to take the whole round camera hump thing to a whole new level, with new tech co-developed with Zeiss and new "Xtreme Imagination" branding. Ironically, its latest leak purports to dispel any remaining mystery concerning its internal specs.

It consists of a Geekbench listing for what might be a new device that, with the model number V2227A, could indeed be one of the latest crop of top-end Vivo devices: the X Fold Plus was identified as the V2229A on the same benchmark ahead of its launch, after all.

Its possible next-gen sibling apparently runs on a processor with 3 cores clocked at 2.02GHz and another 4 at 2.80GHz. Those specs - not to mention the new code-name kalama - have been linked to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor in earlier such leaks.

However, that leaves the 8th and allegedly most powerful core, and is where the new tip runs into some difficulty. It has returned a top clock of 3.19GHz, whereas those of "Galaxy S23" devices were found to go up to 3.36GHz under the same conditions.

Therefore, either Samsung and Vivo have secured differentially-clocked versions of the 8 Gen 2 (which, apparently, confers comparatively improved multi-core Geekbench scores on the latter, even if single-core results suffer), or this leak's validity might have some issues.

It would almost be a shame were this the case, as the rest of this new listing hints at Vivo's latest OriginOS 3 based on Android 13 out of the box for this "X90 Pro+".
