vivo 1817 goes on GeekBench, has just 2GB of RAM

A previously unheard of vivo phone has been spotted on GeekBench – the vivo 1817. The existing vivo Y93 goes by v1818 internally, and the new model appears to be similar to that, minus one – it’s certainly got 1GB RAM less than the Y93 base model’s 3gigs.

The vivo 1817, which will inevitably get a more marketable name when it goes official, is powered by a Qualcomm chip with an octa-core CPU, and it’s likely the Snapdragon 439 you can find in the Y93/Y95 models. The 1817 also runs on Android 8.1 Oreo like its Y brethren.

So far that’s all the popular CPU benchmark reveals – we’d be so much happier if it started reporting display size and battery capacity.
