The VIVO Nex 3S 5G device was released three months ago. But that does not mean that the company will stop building new high-tech models with 5G capability. VIVO has always been at the root of 5G. And it’s one of those rare companies that has put a lot of effort into researching and developing 5G phones in the past. Well, the next VIVO 5G phone with that name has appeared on GeekBench. And it turns out that this new phone will feature the Snapdragon 865 mobile platform. You need to know this chip because it is the most powerful in the Android camp.
Usually, when a phone appears in GeekBench, there is no specific information that reveals the exact chip model. Of course, this is especially true for non-commercial models. This time, there is no official confirmation that we are dealing with an SND865 chip. But the VIVO model codenamed V2024A is said to use a “Kona” motherboard. In other words, the phone will be equipped with the Snapdragon 865 SoC.
The document also shows that the machine has 8 GB of memory and a pre-installed Android 10 operating system. In the Geekbench 5.1.1 test, the single-core rating of the phone was 912 points and the multi-core rating was 3291 points.
As of now, VIVO has managed to launch 14 5G smartphones. In addition, when this phone is out, it will be the fifth VIVO 5G smartphone based on the Snapdragon 865. Among them, we can mention the VIVO X50 Pro Plus, VIVO NEX 3S, iQOO Neo 3 and iQOO 3.
However, this handset could also be an iQOO model. As you know, iQOO is owned by VIVO and is an important part of the company’s dual brand strategy. And we have to say that the manufacturer pays equal attention to both brands. But when it comes to pricing, everything changes. As in the case of Xiaomi and Redmi, VIVO and iQOO smartphones have different prices. Let’s take a quick look at the latest 5G VIVO smartphone with SND865 and its sub-brand. The price of the VIVO NEX 3S 8GB + 256GB version is 4998 yuan ($ 713), while the 12 GB + 256 GB variant is available at 5298 yuan ($ 756). And the iQOO Neo 3 6 GB + 128 GB costs 2698 yuan ($ 381), the 8 GB + 128 GB costs 2998 yuan ($ 423), the 12 GB + 128 GB are available at 3298 yuan ($ 466) and the 8 GB + 256 GB available for 3398 yuan ($ 480)). So it is quite difficult to guess the original price.
