Vivo: the brand that “ruined” the Qualcomm Snapdragon domain

Written by admin

The American manufacturer of mobile chips and processors, Qualcomm, is one of the best known and most respected in its segment with excellent products such as Snapdragon chipsets. However, the MediaTek is the manufacturer with the most processors to put on the market according to the latest indicators, which has not gone unnoticed by Alive.

To dare, therefore, to wonder about the power of the current Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 from Qualcomm, the Chinese giant Vivo, which currently dominates the world’s largest smartphone market, China, opted for the processor MediaTek Dimension 9000 on your smartphone Vivo X80 with excellent results.

At stake is the latest Vivo X80 smartphone that uses MediaTek’s Dimensity 9000 processor, the current high-end chipset from this Taiwan-based manufacturer. This is “living” proof of the power and capabilities of “alternative” processors to Qualcomm’s Snapdragons that continue to dominate AnTuTu’s tables.

Indeed, in AnTuTu’s April Top 10, we see an overwhelming majority of devices with the highest average score using Qualcomm processors. Specifically, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, current top of the range from North American Qualcomm, presented at the end of 2021.

So, in AnTuTu’s Top 10 for April, as we reported on 4gnews, a total of 9 out of 10 mobile phones use Snapdagon 8 Gen 1, but there is one bright exception. Equipped with 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of internal storage, the Vivo X80 is accompanied by the Dimensity 9000 and obtains an average of 1019921 points on AnTuTu, in fourth place in the Top 10.

It’s only one, but it already occupies a prominent place in this ranking of the most powerful smartphones of the last month of April. Nevertheless, we have the top spot taken by the Xiaomi Black Shark 5 Pro, along with the Red Magic 7 Pro and the new Lenovo Legion Y90.

Shortly after, in fourth place, we find the Vivo X80 mobile phone which appears almost unexpectedly in the face of such dominance of the North American rival and its Snapdragon chipset.

Finally, Vivo has a new promise. The manufacturer is now officially present in Portugal, well established in China, with some of the best Android smartphones of the moment. Whether its Vivo X80 will also cover domestic consumers looking for a high-end smartphone in 2022 remains to be seen, however.
