Two new smartphones from vivo just popped up in TENAA listings revealing their model numbers and some bits about the hardware. They appear to be members of the same family as evidenced by their screen sizes.
The devices are named V1803BA and V1730DT and feature almost identical dimensions and weight. Judging by the specs, the V1730DT should be the more expensive model with a 6.2-inch display, tall aspect ratio and 1080 x 2280 pixel resolution. It does however settle for the lower clocked 1.8 GHz octa-core CPU, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. This matches the Snapdragon 636, but it could also be a new chipset altogether.
The V1803BA, on the other hand, comes with 2.0 GHz octa-core processor, again 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage and a 6.2-inch HD+ display with 720 x 1520 pixel resolution. Those point to Snapdragon 625, which would align with the more budget nature of the screen.
The rest of the specs on both phones are identical - dual cameras on the back (13MP+2MP), 8MP front-facing snappers, rear-mounted fingerprint readers, and 3,180 mAh batteries. Both devices run Android 8.1 Oreo-based Funtouch OS out of the box.
Details about the marketing name of the phone are yet to be revealed.
It is always a safe bet to go with Huawei. A more fluid android experience with EMUI and better update services from Huawei.
I prefer Huawei over Oppo and Vivo, since they have a good track of having security updates.
The Huawei-Oppo-Vivo brands are getting so popular too in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand now...
