Today, Samsung officially released the Exynos 1080 SoC in an event that took place in China. According to Samsung, “Vivo has been a strategic partner”. This statement sparks the speculations that Vivo will be the first company to use the Exynos 1080 SoC. There have been speculations that the Vivo X60 will arrive in December. According to @DigitalChatStation, this smartphone will come with the Exynos 1080 SoC.
Today, we now have some real images of what is suspected to be the Vivo X60 series. The image shows that the phone uses a punch-hole screen with curved edges. The punch-hole is at the top center of this device. In addition, the brand-new OriginOS UI has also been installed on the Vivo X60 series. According to previous news, the OS adopts a mimicry design and has greatly changed its style. It is important to note that these images were initially reported as the Xiaomi Mi 11 and Mi 11 Pro. That report turns out to be a speculation these devices are most likely the upcoming Vivo X60 series. Of course, this is still a speculation.
The phone on the left side of the picture above has a flat-screen and a red power button. Also, the Vivo device with the OriginOS (with curve screen) is very similar to the second image with a curved screen. As of now, it is not clear whether the phone also belongs to the Vivo X60 series. Last year Vivo released the Vivo X30 series with the Exynos 980 chip.
