INTRODUCTION

If you have been keeping an eye on the commercials, the chance is that you have come across the new add posted by a Chinese company, Vivo. They have been recently upping their games, and we have caught hold of some of the juicy speculations, about two rumored device that the company may have been working upon. Nothing is set in stone and at this early point, it is all but a speculation, but it’s worth discussing. The company has rumored to be developing two new models, namely the Vivo X20 and the X20 Plus. There is no release date and there is no official announcement. We have got the news from a leaked 2018 world cup poster. Now according to the picture, the device seems quite impressing with the new bezel-less design and down the line, if this speculation is verified, then this device is going to amazing.

DESIGN AND DISPLAY

In terms of display the Vivo X20 Plus will be sporting a Full HD 5.5-inch display and with a pixel density of 416 ppi. Whether it’s an AMOLED, IPS, Super AMOLED or some other piece of technology, we have no idea at this moment. All that we know from the leaked picture is that the display is going to have next to no bezels, which is a great thing. For a 5.5-inch screen, 416 ppi is a great deal, as the images will appear to have a decent amount of details to them. The increased screen-to-body on top of that will enhance the allover viewing quality of the screen.

We are slowly moving into a time, where bezels become a thing of the past and smartphones will gradually become bezel free. It’s reassuring to see Vivo taking the initiatives towards the future.

PERFORMANCE AND CONFIGURATION

Since the device is still just a rumor, there is no use talking about the performance. However, we aren’t giving up just yet and based on some simulations, we are going to determine the approximate benchmark of the X20 Plus. Under the hood, the Vivo X20 Plus is going to be powered by a 64-bit octa-core Qualcomm MSM8596 Plus Snapdragon 660 processor, whose clock speed we are assuming to be somewhere around the 1.84GHz mark. The GPU is most probably going to be the Adreno 505 along with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It will also run on the Android 7.1 Nougat or higher if Android Oreo support released for Vivo by the time of its release.

The Snapdragon 660 is a fairly new SoC that is gaining a lot of momentum in the market and wriggling its way into many upcoming devices. With a single core score of 1656 and a multi-core score of 5244, it seems that the Snapdragon 660 is going to dominate the mid-range price margin among all the smartphone SoCs. For sensors, the X20 Plus has the standard package i.e., the fingerprint, proximity, ambient light sensors, along with the accelerometer and the gyro sensor.

CAMERA AND MULTIMEDIA

In terms of the camera, the X20 Plus will sport a dual 13-megapixel rear camera and a 24-megapixel front facing the shooter, which also supports face detection, panorama, HDR, geo-tagging touch focus, and autofocus. Nobody has ever seen a 24-megapixel sensor in a front facing camera and this may become a cue for other smartphone manufacturers to follow suit. Video recording is supposed to be done at 1080p@30fps and 2160p@30fps which is normally not expected from a device at this range. The X20 Plus comes with an FM radio and a 3.5mm audio jack. It also fairly supports a wide range of audio (AA, AAC+, WAV, MP3, eAAc+, MIDI) and video formats (MPEG4, HD, H.263, H.264).

BATTERY AND CONNECTIVITY

The Vivo X20 plus will be offering a hefty non-removable 3500mAh Li-Ion battery, which should be enough to handle the daily loads of the device. The device will also have dual sim support and since there is no mention of an expandable memory, we can assume that it will not be having a hybrid sim-slot. The Snapdragon 660 is a fairly new fish in the market, and its battery consumption rates are still but unknown. Only time will if the 3500mAh is able to keep with the tantrums of the X20 Plus.
