The OEM Vivo held a press conference today (November 7, 2019) to introduce its X30, a phone that will ship with the dual-mode 5G chipset, Samsung's Exynos 980. Oddly, the phone itself was not displayed, nor was its spec-sheet. However, new leaks point to a 90 hertz (Hz) AMOLED display, a 4500mAh battery and a Pro variant.

Vivo has made the X30 launch official at an event today (November 7, 2019) in China. Then again, we do not know much more about the phone now, besides the OEM's reasons for integrating the new Exynos 980 SoC into the device. It appears this is the only chipset that currently supports dual-mode 5G; this is why Vivo has gone with this Samsung-made option rather than one from any other manufacturer.

Accordingly, the X30 will be able to use standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) 5G-NR bands. This may make it a little more geographically agnostic than the average device with this cutting-edge connectively. Vivo has also chosen the Exynos 980 as it makes for a more mid-range phone. Despite this, it is still as 8-nanometer as any current flagship Samsung chipset.

The Exynos 980 is also capable of data-transfer speeds of up to 3.55 gigabits per second (Gbps), a spec that is helped out with its AI for this purpose. Vivo did announce a launch window for the upcoming device that may deliver it: December 2019. However, it did not disclose its looks or other properties at its latest event.

Regardless, some leaks claim to be able to spoil this reveal. They assert that the Vivo X30 will have a 90Hz AMOLED display that may measure 6.5 inches. It is also now linked to 6-8GB of RAM and a 4500mAh battery, which may charge at between 22.5 and 30 watts (W).

The new mid-tier 5G phone may also have 64MP+13MP+8MP+2MP rear cameras - and, on top of all that, a Pro model. This version of the Vivo X30 may upgrade to a 6.89-inch screen and a 60MP+12MP+13MP+13MP quad shooter.
