However, the Geekbench listing claims that the Vivo S6 5G will be powered by Samsung’s home-brewed Exynos 980 SoC. It seems that the Chinese company wanted to keep its partnership with Samsung.

As per GeekBench 5.1’s result, the Exynos SoC reportedly scored higher than the Snapdragon 765G SoC on the single-core test.
