The vivo NEX will have a Snapdragon 710 chipset and it will come with 4GB of RAM - so says a Geekbench scorecard that also reveals that the NEX will run Android 8.1.
Previously we heard reports that the vivo NEX will have a top of the line Snapdragon 845, so the model benchmarked might actually be the vivo NEX S.
The vivo NEX with a Snapdragon 845 chipset could be priced as high as CNY 7,000 (€940) while the vivo NEX S with a Snapdragon 710 is tipped to cost CNY 5,000 (€650).
The Snapdragon 710 inside the vivo NEX S puts it in direct competition with upcoming Xiaomi Mi 8 SE, which is also rumored to have the new chipset.
Meanwhile the vivo NEX S has been found on a listing with the Chinese Compulsory Certificate commission, revealing it will have a 22.5W charger in the box. That means it will have Quick Charge 4+ support.
vivo is expected to announce both the vivo NEX and NEX S on June 12 at an event in China.
710 isn't that much more powerful per GB than the 660. I bet the gains will be in GPU
The Mi8 its gonna have the USFP as well*, but the price its not that much different from the former Mi6. *Plus the 3D sensing stuff, that, given the difficulty to produce according to Apple, it could be pricey too.
