The vivo S6 5G might be totally revealed on March 31 and whereas the corporate has already posted some teasers, one factor has remained hidden (even after TENAA revealed an in depth spec sheet). The place does the 5G functionality come from?
The reply is the Samsung Exynos 980 chipset, which options an built-in 5G modem. Sure, vivo is utilizing Exynos chips in a few of its telephones – in case you missed them, the vivo X30 and X30 Pro use the identical chipset.
Anyway, this revelation comes by means of a Geekbench v5.1 consequence, which is sort of fascinating because it provides an early comparability with the opposite selection of mid-range 5G chipset – the Snapdragon 765G (which is utilized by the vivo Z6 5G by the best way).
The Exynos 980 posted a better single-core rating, the Qualcomm chip will get within the 400-450 vary. Each get an analogous multi-core score. The fascinating bit right here is that the Snapdragon is a 7nm EUV chip with a “prime” core (i.e. one of many large core runs at a better clock pace than the others).
The Exynos is an 8nm chip and each its large cores run on the identical pace. After all, the Samsung chip relies on the newer Cortex-A77 structure , which guarantees 20% enchancment over the A76 that Qualcomm used as a foundation for its Kryo 475 cores.
After all, Geekbench does not inform us something about energy utilization, so we’ll see how that goes as soon as the vivo telephones and S765-based opponents go dwell. The S6 may have a 4,390 mAh battery, smaller than Z6’s 5,000mAh energy unit.
