Vivo tested some of its smartphones on Geekbench. After a benchmark run by the vivo’s iQOO Neo 7 Pro, a Vivo-branded phone – Vivo S17 – was spotted on the benchmarking website. As expected, Geekbench reveals some of the key specifications coming with the smartphone. The newly-spotted phone boasts the Vivo V2283 model number and has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ in tow.
Vivo S17 passes by Geekbench
The alleged Vivo S17 was listed on Geekbench with the “Lahaina” codename. Judging by the CPU specs and the Adreno 642L GPU, it’s easy to confirm this as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778+. It’s a powerful mid-range chipset with 4 x ARM Cortex-A78 cores and a GPU that is capable of handling demanding games without issues. Interestingly, the benchmark also confirms a generous amount of RAM – about 12 GB. Finally, the phone runs Android 13 OS, which means Funtouch OS 13 for global markets and OriginOS 3 for China.
Gizchina News of the week
S17 Pro camera details have been tipped
We expect Vivo to confirm the chipset soon for the Vivo S17, after all, the brand already began the teasing campaign for these devices. Today, Vivo’s official Weibo page started to tease some of the details of the Vivo S17 Pro. The brand revealed that the phone will bring an LED flash that can light up at different temperatures. It will also bring two front-facing LED flashes that fit on the phone’s top bezel. These will light up when you wish to take selfies in dark environments. The Vivo S17 Pro is confirmed with a 50 MP shooter for selfies and video calls.
It’s not surprising to see a 50 MP front-facing camera on the Vivo S17. After all, this lineup has a recurring story of super-capable selfie cameras. We also expect this camera to bring a wide field of view to compensate for the lack of an ultrawide camera. The teasers also suggest that the portrait shooter is a 2x telephoto camera. Additionally, the phone is equipped with some sort of “super-sensing spectral sensor” that should allow for better color rendition. Unfortunately, Vivo is yet to give further details that explain this technology.
The Vivo S17 and S17 Pro will hit the Chinese market on May 31. The Vivo S17 and Pro should reach other markets at some point as the Vivo V28 and V28 Pro, respectively. These new smartphones are Vivo’s latest approach to conquering the premium mid-range market. As the teasers already suggest, the focus of the S and V series will remain on the camera department. The Vivo S17 Pro was spotted a few days ago on the Google Play console. And you can find more details about it here.
