Announcement. Vivo Y31s 5G - the first smartphone on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 chipset

In distant China, the Vivo Y31s smartphone was announced. If I'm not mistaken, this is the world's first smartphone on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 chipset presented the other day.

In fact, Vivo Y31s is a copy of the Decembersmartphone Vivo Y52s, only the camera is weaker, but the chipset is different. Vivo Y52s is built on a very solid MediaTek Dimensity 720 chip (under three hundred thousand AnTuTu points).

What about the performance of the Snapdragon 480, meit is not yet clear. Formally, the chipset belongs to the younger line. In fact, there is a suspicion that the power will be more like that of the modern middle class.
I suppose that the first tests will show around two hundred, two hundred and fifty thousand points of the same AnTuTu. Those. to have more than
Snapdragon 460, but smaller than the Snapdragon 690 (which is now Qualcomm's junior 5G chip).

The memory of the Vivo Y31s is doing well. 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of constant. There seems to be no support for memory cards, but this is inaccurate.

6.58 ″ screen with a refresh rate of 90 Hz. High resolution 1080 × 2408 (401 ppi), small teardrop notch for the front camera.

Capacious battery - 5000 mAh. Supported not very fast, but still fast charging (18 W).

Cameras are the weak link. The front camera is only 8 MP. The rear camera is double. The main module is 13 MP, plus a 2 MP depth sensor. Those. as from the camera from Vivo Y31s we do not expect anything at all.

There is a fingerprint scanner located on the side.

No NFC, no gyroscope. Of the LTE bands we are interested in, Band 7 and Band 20 are missing.

I cannot call the price humane.¥ 1,698 (₽19,200, $ 260) at launch. Most likely, the Vivo Y31s will be available on AliExpress any day. But without NFC, without our frequencies and with such weak cameras, it is unlikely that it is of any interest to you and me.
