The world’s first Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 phone is the Vivo X90 Pro Plus

Recommended Posts

The world's first smartphone with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC is the Vivo X90 Pro Plus. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will power most of the flagship Android phones coming out in 2023, but BBK's Vivo is beating everyone to the punch and releasing before the new year. The phone is coming out in China on December 6 for 6,499 CNY (about $910).

For specs, there's a 6.78-inch, 3200×1440, 120HZ OLED display, 12GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, a 4700 mAh battery with an 80 W fast charger, and a rare signing of Qualcomm's super-sized 3D Sonic Max in-display fingerprint sensor. The cameras are also really big, with Sony's 1-inch IMX989 sensor leading the way, along with a 50MP portrait camera, a 48MP ultrawide, and a 64MP 3.5x telephoto.

As for fun new things the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 enables, that storage is UFS 4.0, a new, faster flash storage standard that can hit read speeds of 4,200MBps and write speeds of 2,800MBps (though there's no benchmark on this phone yet). We were looking forward to Wi-Fi 7 support, but this phone only supports Wi-Fi 6. It's hard to tell what's going on with the Chinese-language spec sheet, but it should have AV1 support.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
