Mid Range Vivo V1816A Spotted on Geekbench with Snapdragon 660 SoC and 8GB RAM

A new Vivo smartphone around the corner? That is what one should conclude after seeing the details of a model Vivo V1816A appearing on the Geekbench site. Many important specifications can be gathered from the test results for this new device posted there.

Snapdragon 660 SoC and other Key Specs

It is clear that the Vivo V1816A smartphone submitted to Geekbench is fitted with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC as the main processor. It is an octa-core chipset that clocks 1.84GHz and the RAM support is worth 8GB. Vivo is still stuck with the Android Oreo version 8.1 as the operating system on this phone. From the benchmarking perspective, the scores for single core and multi-core have been 1448 and 5553 respectively.

Interestingly, Vivo has been using Snapdragon 660 SoC only on their premium phones.  Now, in this model so far only identified as V1816A, it is clear the phone will be slotted in the mid-segment since the battery charging support for 5V/2A is indicated from the CCC website. This could form the trend with the company to shift some of the top specs to the mid-segment and gain on the market share offering better value for money to the customers. One has seen the Vivo V11 and Vivo V9 Pro, both middle segment phones, with the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor.

Few More Vivo Devices in the Making

Besides the above Vivo V1816A phone from Geekbench, we have also spotted a few more devices V1814A/T, V1818A/T and V1820A/T in different certification websites including the Chinese certification portal TENAA. But the details of V1818A/T available on TENAA are quite sketchy, except for a couple of images, one of which displays a notch of the waterdrop shape. The charging support being the same 5V/2A with V1816A as well, it can be expected that Vivo V1818A / V1818T will fall in the mid-segment and not going to be any higher-end device from Vivo. Another deduction from these images is that the physical fingerprint sensor is not seen on the rear panel. Therefore, Vivo may provide an under-display fingerprint ID and unlocking arrangement.

A lot of action from the Chinese phone maker in the market can be expected in the coming days.
