Samsung unveiled its first 5nm chipset, the Exynos 1080, last month in China. During the unveiling, the company had mentioned that the processor would debut inside a smartphone from Vivo. The name of the upcoming Vivo smartphone has now been revealed, along with its image and a few specifications.
The Vivo X60 will be the first smartphone in the world to use Samsung’s Exynos 1080 processor. It will also use a Samsung-made Super AMOLED Infinity-O display with a 120Hz refresh rate and center punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera. The upcoming phone will feature 8GB RAM and 128GB/512GB internal storage. Other features include a quad-camera setup (possibly with gimbal stabilization), 5G connectivity, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, an in-display fingerprint reader, and 33W fast charging.

The Vivo X60 series is set to be launched on December 28, and the pricing is expected to start from CNY 3,500 (around $535). Even OPPO and Xiaomi could launch Exynos 1080 equipped smartphones next year.
