The "vivo V2002A" is a new device that has landed on Geekbench purporting to run on the Exynos 880 SoC. This heretofore-unknown chipset has 8 cores and has conferred mid-range scores on this apparently upcoming phone. Its model number has also reportedly appeared on the 3C database.

According to a new Geekbench 5 listing, the "vivo V2002A" is powered by an all-new SoC called the Exynos 880. It is described as having 8 cores and a clock-speed of 1.79GHz; further leaks claim this speed belongs to 6 Cortex-A55 cores, whereas 2 other A77s run at 2.0GHz.

Its first device also apparently has 8GB of RAM and runs Android 10. This has netted the "V2002A" scores of just over 600 in single-core tests and approximately 1800 in multi-core terms. To date, this putative Vivo phone does not officially has a name. However, some rumors claim it will be called the Y70s on its launch.

Its apparent model number has also recently been certified with the 3C authority in China. This indicates that the Exynos 880 may be 5G as well as completely new - therefore, it may yet have something to do with the pre-existing 980.

Its new regulatory documentation also shows it has a very standard power brick, despite the existence of a possible variant, the V2001A, which has a 33W charger. However, nothing more is known about the potential Vivo phone or its specs.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
