A mysterious Vivo phone that is labelled as Vivo 1808 has appeared on the Geekbench benchmarking platform.
An interesting thing about this listing is that the smartphone is powered by the unannounced MediaTek MT6765 chipset.
As the below screenshot reveals, the upcoming Vivo 1808 handset includes the yet-to-be unveiled MediaTek MT6765 chipset and 3 GB of RAM. It is running on Android 8.1 Oreo. The handset has respectively scored 837 and 3645 points in single-core and multi-core tests on Geekbench. The benchmarking scores show that it will be a mid-range phone from Vivo.
In May, Xiaomi’s upcoming mid-range phones that are codenamed as Cactus and Cereus were also spotted with the same SoC. Also, in the previous month, the Vivo 1802 phone had appeared on the same benchmarking site with the MT6765 SoC. The Vivo 1802 handset was made official as Vivo Y83 recently. The official listing of the Y83 reveals that it is powered by MediaTek Helio P22 MT6762 SoC. Hence, there is a possibility that the Helio P22 may power the Vivo 1808 phone or it may feature a new Helio P2X SoC.
The Vivo 1808 has also bagged certification from Eurasian Economic Commission in Europe (along with model vivo 1803) and Ecomm in Malaysia which indicates that its launch may not be far away. However, nothing has been revealed on the specifications of the phone through these certifications.
If the handset clears TENAA certification in the near future, its other specifications will be revealed. As of this writing, it seems that the Vivo 1808 is yet another Vivo Y series smartphone.
