The vivo NEX 3 5G was introduced back in September 2019 with a Snapdragon 855+ chipset. Now, according to a leaked benchmark, a device codenamed V1950A, said to carry the NEX 3 moniker as well, appeared on Geekbench with Snapdragon 865 chipset.
The phone will also apparently have an 8GB RAM option and Android 10, despite vivo delaying its in-house Funtouch OS 10 rollout.
Bringing an updated variant of a phone is a thing vivo has already done with its iQOO lineup and we wouldn’t act surprised to see the same happen to the NEX family. Nevertheless, the 921 single-core result and 3369 multi-core result are impressive numbers, but we wouldn't read too much into results posted by what is clearly a pre-release unit.
