The vivo X30 is expected to arrive next month, and we finally have a first look at the phone’s back, thanks to an official teaser. The 30-second video reveals a vertical camera setup in the upper left corner with a rectangular aperture beside it and a neat gradient.
The most interesting bit is the frame of a camera, which confirms 16mm to 135mm focal length and F/1.8 to F/3.0 apertures. Those confirm the X30 will come with an ultrawide angla camera and a long F/3.0 telephoto. The latter will likely use a periscope design, that ends in the aforementioned rectangular aperture.
The vivo X30 is expected to be the first smartphone sporting Samsung’s Exynos 980 chipset that has an integrated 5G modem. The phone will be capable to operate both on standalone and non-standalone networks, but we expect to see a non-5G variant in the mix, which should act as a budget option of the vivo X30.
When the phone arrives, it will be the first device from the X series with 5G connectivity (and just second after the NEX 3 5G) and should be able to compete with the Xiaomi Mi 9 Pro 5G, Honor V30 5G and Huawei nova 6 5G on the domestic scene in China.
