Samsung announced the Exynos 980 chipset with a 5G integrated modem, and while it was introduced as first in the world, we are still waiting to see a smartphone with it.

Samsung built the platform with two Cortex-A77 cores in the CPU and six Cortex-A55 units and a Mali-G76 MP5 GPU. Having an integrated 5G modem is both cheaper to produce due to simplified motherboard and more power-efficient, so the vivo X30 should be at an advantage compared to most of its 5G rivals.
Earlier this year, we saw some renders of a venue that is going to be the launch scene for the vivo X30. We expect to see a notchless display and three cameras on the back in the upper left corner. Actual market availability might take until December though.
