The vivo V30 is the world’s first Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 phone

While the spotlight may have been on its latest X100, vivo has been quietly excelling in the budget and mid-range smartphone segments. The vivo V29 emerged as a top choice for mid-range smartphones in 2023. Now, just months after the V29’s debut, vivo unveils the vivo V30, featuring enhanced cameras, a larger battery, and Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 chipset.

Staying true to its tradition, the V series emphasizes camera performance, a trend continued with the V30. It introduces upgrades like an enhanced Aura Light flash, a colour temperature sensor, and distance-sensitive lighting adjusting based on subject distance. The camera setup comprises a triple 50MP system, encompassing a 50MP main, 50MP ultra-wide, and 50MP selfie camera, a significant upgrade from the V29’s 8MP ultra-wide sensor.

The V30 retains the 1.5K 6.78-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, now boasting 2800 nits brightness for improved outdoor visibility. Powering the device is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 chip, built on a 4nm process, featuring one Cortex-A715 clocked at 2.63GHz, three Cortex-A715 cores at 2.4GHz, and four Cortex-A510 cores at 1.8GHz. Storage options extend up to 512GB with 12GB of RAM.

While the design remains largely unchanged, the V30 introduces a notable upgrade with a larger 5,000 mAh battery (versus the V29’s 4,600 mAh), supporting 80W FlashCharge. Impressively slim at 7.45 mm, it stands as vivo’s thinnest phone with a 5,000 mAh battery. Notably, vivo emphasizes cooling, incorporating an Ultra Large Smart Cooling System for enhanced heat dissipation.

Pricing details for the V30 are yet to be revealed, but vivo confirms availability in over thirty countries, including India, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Pakistan, Egypt, and the UAE. Updates regarding pricing and availability will be provided as announced by the company.
