At an event in China earlier this month, Vivo announced that it will be launching a new X series smartphone called the Vivo X30 by the end of this year. The company has already revealed that the Vivo X30 will arrive with support for the next-gen 5G networks and will be the first handset to utilise Samsung’s latest Exynos 980 5G processor. The Vivo X30 will arrive as the successor to the Vivo X20 smartphone that was launched way back in 2017. Ahead of the launch, the phone has now just been certified by a regulatory authority in China, which has revealed a key specification of the smartphone.
The Vivo X30 has received certification from China’s CCC agency under the model number V1938T. The phone is certified with the charger V330LOAO-CN. The listing suggests that the handset will come with support for 33W fast charging. Unfortunately, the certification hasn’t revealed anything else about the purported X30.
