vivo NEX spotted on Geekbench with Snapdragon 710 and 4GB of RAM

Ivan, 30 May 2018

The vivo NEX will have a Snapdragon 710 chipset and it will come with 4GB of RAM - so says a Geekbench scorecard that also reveals that the NEX will run Android 8.1.

Previously we heard reports that the vivo NEX will have a top of the line Snapdragon 845, so the model benchmarked might actually be the vivo NEX S.

The vivo NEX with a Snapdragon 845 chipset could be priced as high as CNY 7,000 (€940) while the vivo NEX S with a Snapdragon 710 is tipped to cost CNY 5,000 (€650).

The Snapdragon 710 inside the vivo NEX S puts it in direct competition with upcoming Xiaomi Mi 8 SE, which is also rumored to have the new chipset.

Meanwhile the vivo NEX S has been found on a listing with the Chinese Compulsory Certificate commission, revealing it will have a 22.5W charger in the box. That means it will have Quick Charge 4+ support.

vivo is expected to announce both the vivo NEX and NEX S on June 12 at an event in China.
