For the past few days, Vivo has been teasing the upcoming Vivo X7 flagship. The company has already confirmed a few features on the device like a 16MP front-facing shooter, but at that time we were unsure about the CPU and RAM inside. Given that most smartphone manufacturers are now not shy to reveal major specs about its handsets, Vivo has just confirmed the CPU as well as RAM inside the new Vivo X7 via a new teaser.
Earlier today, Vivo revealed via an official teaser that the Vivo X7 will feature MSM8976 chipset inside, which is the Snapdragon 652 octa-core processor. The company also confirms that the phone comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. There’s also the mention of wisdom engine 2.0 which is a self-learning engine that reportedly ensures that the CPU and memory performance are top-notch via smart resource scheduling. In case you remember, wisdom engine was also present on the company’s 6GB RAM flagship, the Vivo XPlay 5.
Today’s teaser also confirms the design of the device. As expected, the phone will be quite slim and will continue using a design similar to the Vivo X6 flagship that was announced back in 2015. One major difference between the two is going to be the fingerprint sensor. The Vivo X6 had the sensor at the back, while the new X7 will sport it up front, below the display. Another thing confirmed is the color. So, it looks like the phone will come in gold along with a few other color options.
So, the Vivo X7 is turning out to be a powerful flagship. Apart from these specs, which place the phone in the upper mid-range segment, the X7 is also confirmed to sport a powerful 16MP camera up front with moonlight soft lights. This phone is naturally targeted at selfie lovers, who want a good front facing camera.
Considering its specs, and the fact that this is a Vivo device, don’t expect the phone to come for cheap. Last year’s Vivo X7 started at a price of 2500 Yuan ($380). So, expect the Vivo X7 to start around this figure too. [source]
