Russian certification agency EEC recently certified three upcoming Vivo smartphones with model numbers 1818, 1819, and 1820. While the Vivo 1818 is expected to be a European variant of the Y93, the 1820 is expected to be a high-end smartphone with 22.5W fast charging support. The Vivo 1819 has now been spotted on the Geekbench benchmark database, revealing its core specifications for the first time.
Vivo 1819 Will Run on a MediaTek Helio P70 Chipset
According to the Geekbench listing, Vivo 1819 will be powered by a MediaTek Helio P70 octa-core processor under the hood. The new Helio P70 offers slightly improved performance compared to the Helio P60, thanks to the higher clock speeds. As you can see in the Geekbench benchmark listing above, the Vivo 1819 scored an impressive 1,562 points in the single-core test and 5,964 points in the multi-core test. Both the scores are in line with what we expect from a smartphone powered by the Helio P70 chipset. The Geekbench listing also confirms the smartphone packs 4GB of RAM. In terms of software, the Vivo 1819 has been caught running on the Android 9 Pie operating system, which suggests the handset will launch with the latest Android version out of the box when it goes on sale sometime early next year. Needless to say, it is going to run the company’s custom Funtouch OS on top of Android Pie.
Going by the chipset and amount of RAM, the Vivo 1819 will be a budget Android smartphone. We expect it to sport a dual-camera setup at the rear and an impressive selfie snapper on the front. What remains to be seen, however, is the Vivo 1819 will offer a radically different design compared to the budget and mid-range smartphones released by the company in 2018. In case Vivo does not plan to introduce any major design changes next year, the Vivo 1819 will likely have a Halo FullView display on the front and a glass-finish back with gradient color options.
