Samsung’s Exynos 980 chipset ends up in one more Vivo phone


Last updated: April 1st, 2020 at 08:01 UTC+02:00

The Exynos 980 is Samsung’s first chipset with a completely integrated 5G modem, and it was first used in the Vivo X30. Now, the chipset has been used in one more Vivo smartphone, the Vivo S6 5G. It’s a mid-range phone Super AMOLED screen and 5G connectivity.

Vivo announced the S6 5G for the Chinese market earlier today. It features a 6.44-inch Super AMOLED screen with HDR10, a U-shaped notch for the selfie camera, and an under-display fingerprint reader. The phone runs Android 10-based Funtouch OS 10 and is equipped with the 8nm Exynos 980 processor, 8GB LPDDR4X RAM, and 128GB/256GB UFS 2.1 storage.

The Vivo S6 5G has a quad-camera setup on the rear, consisting of a 48MP primary sensor (F1.8), an 8MP ultrawide camera (F2.25), a 2MP macro camera (F2.4), and a 2MP depth sensor. It supports 4K video recording. At the front, the phone has a 32MP selfie camera with an F2.0 aperture.

Other features of the phone include SA and NSA 5G connectivity, dual-SIM card slot, Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 5.1, GPS, USB Type-C port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The Vivo S6 5G is powered by a 4500mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging. The phone is priced at CNY 2,698 (around $380) and comes in black, blue, and white colors. It will go on sale starting April 3.

Very few mid-range chipsets offer an integrated 5G modem with SA and NSA compatibility and support for sub-6GHz technology, and the Exynos 980 is among them. No wonder, the chipset is seeing attraction from other brands. Interestingly, no Samsung has yet been released with the Exynos 980 chipset, but we know that it will be used in the Galaxy A51 5G and the Galaxy A71 5G.
