Yesterday, Vivo presented the new Y31s, the first smartphone in the world with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 480 5G SoC on board. Well, apparently another Chinese phone giant, OPPO, seems ready to launch a new device with the same ultra-cheap 5G chipset.
OPPO as Vivo: new smartphone with Snapdragon 480 is coming
An OPPO smartphone with model number PEHT00 has in fact just been caught on the Geekbench database. A device with the same model number had previously achieved Chinese 3C certification, which showed us that there is support for 5G and a charging speed of up to 18W.
Returning to Geekbench, the benchmark reveals that the PEHT00 device runs on a motherboard codenamed “holi”, which is the codename of the recently launched Snapdragon 480 chipset. This is further confirmed by the webpage code on Geekbench showing an Adreno 619 as a GPU.
Going to the score, OPPO's smartphone scored 522 and 1.513 points in Single and Multi-core respectively. Geekbench also reveals that the OPPO device adopts 8 GB of RAM and Android 11 operating system.
Unfortunately we have no other information on when OPPO will launch the device or its possible price, it will most likely be part of the A series as it adopts a relatively slow charging technology.
