Vivo is all set to launch a new Snapdragon 855 processor powered smartphone on October 24th, which could launch as the iQOO Neo 2, iQOO Lite, or iQOO Neo Pro. The phone’s alleged Geekbench listing recently suggested that the new iQOO Neo model will boot Android 9 out of the box, not the latest Android 10. However, the company now seems to be working on an Android 10-powered smartphone in the near future, suggest a listing on the Geekbench.
A Vivo phone with the model number “V1907A” has just been benchmarked by Geekbench. The phone has been listed in the database of Geekbench with Android 10. While it’s not officially confirmed, it could be the brand’s upcoming first Android 10-powered offering. The Vivo V1907A has been benchmarked with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and 8GB of RAM.
Strangely, the single-core score of 2,758 and multi-core score of 6,419, which is way too low for a Snapdragon 855 chipset powered handset. However, it is likely that the Vivo V1907A wasn’t completely optimised before it was benchmarked on the Geekbench. Unfortunately, the listing in the benchmarking database hasn’t revealed the actual name and other specs of the smartphone at the moment.
It’s worth mentioning that a listing on Geekbench doesn’t necessarily suggest towards a new phone. So, it could be possible that the brand is testing Android 10 on one of its Snapdragon 855 chipset-powered offering.
As for the upcoming iQOO Neo model, the phone will be an upgraded model of the previous iQOO handset that arrived with the Snapdragon 845 processor. The new iQOO smartphone is rumoured to feature 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, an AMOLED display with 1,080 x 2,340 pixels resolution, and Android 9 Pie. The other leaked specs include an in-display fingerprint sensor, a 4,500mAh battery, and 33W rapid fast charging support.
