“The two unnamed Vivo smartphones have been spotted on Geekbench with model number Vivo 1918 and Vivo 1916”
A couple of Vivo smartphones have made its way to benchmarking site Geekbench. The handsets are listed with model numbers Vivo 1918 and Vivo 1916, while their marketing names remain unknown for now. The specifications revealed in the Geekbench listing show that the handsets could be the upcoming mid-range offerings. While this is the first time we’re hearing about the Vivo 1918 handset, the Vivo 1916 could be a variant of the Vivo 1916A smartphone with 5G connectivity that was spotted on 3C a few days ago.
The Geekbench listing further reveals that the Vivo 1916 will rock the “trinket” chipset, which is rumoured to be a codename for Snapdragon 665 SoC. The mobile platform has the base frequency of 1.8GHz and is coupled with 3GB of RAM. With those core specs, the handset managed to score 1,512 points in the single-core test and 5,728 points in the multi-core test. The phone runs Android 9 Pie to take care of the software side of things.
As for the Vivo 1918 smartphone, the handset also boots Android 9 Pie but is powered by Qualcomm’s mid-range Snapdragon 710 SoC coupled with 4GB of RAM. Its single-core and multi-core scores are 1933 and 6046 respectively. This could be the toned-down version of the Vivo Z5x smartphone that was launched back in May in China. The handset is also powered by Snapdragon 710 SoC and is the first offering from the brand to rock punch-hole display. That’s all the information we can divulge at the moment.
