Vivo is slated to launch its next top-end mobile Android devices as the X70 series. Now, the OEM has confirmed that they will debut a chipset that the OEM has designed and developed in-house, called the V1. It will act as an image-signal processor (ISP) in the new phones. Meanwhile, the vanilla X70's appearance may have been spoiled in a new leak.

Vivo is an Android OEM that touts its current X flagship line as mobile photography specialists. To this end, it has recently formed a partnership with Zeiss to work on some components of the premium smartphones' rear cameras. The collaboration builds on earlier advancements such as preparing a world-first inbuilt gimbal system for the devices' shooters.

Now, the OEM has officially confirmed the next step on from this development: its own custom ISP. This V1 chipset will be premiered in the X70 series as the company's first self-designed silicon. The Vivo executive Hu Baishan has touted it as a "professional"-grade platform that may inform functions such as videography and  photo previews on the phones on which it finds itself.

Baishan has noted that the V1 has been 24 months in the making thus far, but is now ready for inclusion in new X70 units. On that note, the series' rumored vanilla variant have now joined the top-end Pro+ and Pro models in leaking out in the form of renders.

They suggest the former will be the line's only flat-display option, and that it will also have a rather less extravagant camera hump compared to its "Pro" counterparts, with 3 lenses in a vertical orientation.

This variant is projected to run on the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC, as is the Pro, whereas the Pro+ might get the Snapdragon 888 instead. Vivo has yet to mention how many of these prospective variants might get the new V1 ISP.
