Earlier this week, Qualcomm introduced the Snapdragon 870 chipset for flagship devices. The SoC is slotted between the Snapdragon 888 and the older Snapdragon 865 SoC. The SD870 also offers faster performance than the Snapdragon 865+, which is an overclocked version of the SD865 chip. While Motorola Edge S debuting on Jan. 26 will break cover as the world’s first SD870 powered handset, companies like Xiaomi, OPPO, Vivo, and OnePlus are also expected to announce SD870 powered smartphones. Last week, a Vivo phone with a V2045 model number was spotted at the Geekbench benchmarking platform with the new chip. The same device has now received approval from the Bluetooth SIG authority.
The Bluetooth SIG authority has approved two Vivo phones such as V2045 and V2047 (via). The latter has already gone official as the Vivo X60 Pro in China. The Bluetooth SIG listing could be a hint that its global launch is drawing near.
Coming to the mysterious V2045 phone, the Bluetooth SIG listing only confirms support for Bluetooth 5.1. It has no information on its other specifications. At present, it is unclear whether the V2045 will be arriving in the market with Vivo or iQOO branding.
The Geekbench appearance suggests that the Chinese brand could be internally testing the performance of the Vivo V2045 before making it official. Apart from hinting at the presence of the Snapdragon 870 chip, the listing also revealed that it has 12 GB of RAM and Android 11 OS. However, the other specs of the Vivo V2045 are under the wraps.
Phones that appear at the Bluetooth SIG’s database are known to go official within a month. Hence, the Vivo V2045 could be heading for a Q1 launch.
