Vivo is preparing to introduce its new smartphone lineup – Vivo X70 in China, which is fueled by the Exynos 1080 chipset developed by Samsung. According to the info, the upcoming Vivo X70 and Vivo X70 Pro smartphones visited China’s TENAA certification that revealed their processor info.
To be mentioned, last year, Vivo launched its Vivo X60 series smartphones that come with the Exynos 1080 SoC. However, it seems that the company has decided to ship the new X70 lineup with the same 5nm-based Exynos processor in the Chinese market.
Exynos 1080 Specs
Launched back in 2020, the Exynos 1080 was Samsung’s first mobile platform built on 5nm process technology. It features an octa-core CPU with one Cortex-A78 CPU core @ 2.8GHz, three Cortex-A78 CPU cores @ 2.6GHz, and four Cortex-A55 CPU cores @ 2GHz.
Furthermore, the chipset comes with Mali-G78 MP10 GPU, a built-in 5G modem (with mmWave and sub-6GHz connectivity), GPS, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, LPDDR5 RAM, and UFS 3.1 storage support. Notably, the Exynos 1080 is also capable of cameras up to 200MP and up to 4K 60fps video recording.
On the other hand, the Vivo X70 variants outside China will have Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 870 chipset under the hood. Following the launch of the Vivo X70 series of smartphones, Samsung will surely get benefit from its semiconductor department amid tough challenges from Chinese rivals.
Vivo might launch the Vivo V70 and V70 Pro on September 8 in China.
Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max: So Hot It’s On Fire! Literally.
Apple’s new iPhone 15 Pro is a hot topic, why not it should be, it’s so hot (even on fire!). Following the release, some iPhone 15 Pro Max users complained about the overheating issues. Their device gets warm, even with no longer use cases or gaming, rendering them in big trouble.
Initial purchasers of the iPhone 15 Pro Max complain that their phone gets too hot within minutes. The phone’s temperature reaches a level where the iOS stops charging (if connected) until it decreases. Some report that the titanium body appears horribly hot, which is disappointing.
A user managed to check the temperature of the iPhone 15 Pro Max, which registered over 100-degree Fahrenheit. The model is getting warm even without using it as well as sometimes minutes after connecting the USB C-Type charging cable.
Notably, Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro Max is equipped with A17 Pro chipset. This processor is manufactured by Taiwan’s TSMC on the cutting-edge 3nm process technology. Apple recommends users not charge their iPhone with Android’s USB C cable, while the overheating reports continue to emerge.

Rumor Mill Buzzing: Samsung Galaxy S24 Series May Hit Shelves in January 2024
Samsung launched the Galaxy S23 series in February, while the Galaxy S24 series is reportedly coming earlier. Recently, Korean media reported that the parts production for Samsung’s Galaxy S24 smartphones could begin in mid-October.
According to a reliable source, Samsung may launch the Galaxy S24 series in January 2024. The tipster claims the devices may be unveiled around January 18, but it’s not confirmed. Notably, Korean media reports that the S24 series will go official a month earlier than this year.
The South Korean tech giant believes that the early debut of its next-gen Galaxy S flagships will help counter the success of the iPhone 15 series. Following the release, Apple is securing outstanding consumer response towards its iPhone 15 series internationally.
Next year’s Galaxy S flagship lineup will present three models – S24, S24 Plus and S24 Ultra. Samsung appears to be bringing back the in-house Exynos 2400 chipset, but the Ultra will solely use Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy, manufactured by TSMC.
