Hands-on images have leaked online which allegedly show a piece of yet another smartphone currently being worked on by the Chinese manufacturer Vivo. In fact, there are two images in total and both are said to be of a glass panel for a previously unknown device called the Vivo X30. Both are also watermarked as having come from a post on the Chinese social network Weibo.
As to the images themselves, they appear to hint at a device that would feature the now commonly used 18:9 wide aspect ratio and a nearly bezel-free design. That, of course, means that there is a notch along the top of the screen, which reveals placement for both a front-facing speaker and a camera. The notch itself doesn't cut too far down into the screen real-estate and only seems to extend across around a quarter of the screen horizontally. Meanwhile, it isn't possible to make anything like a precise estimate as to what the exact dimensions of the device would be from the images alone. With that said, if the images turn out to be accurate and this is a brand new Vivo-branded device, the X30 definitely seems as though it would not fall in among the smaller Android devices that are available.
Unfortunately, with no prior leaks or rumors about any such Vivo-branded device under the model name X30, there's no way to know what other specifications or features the device might arrive with. Another device from the company, the Vivo X20 Plus UD, has been hitting the headlines thanks to its unexpected inclusion of a screen-embedded fingerprint scanner. If this is a followup to that other recently unveiled device than the device pictured here could feature a display-bound fingerprint scanner as well. However, it is quite clear that other device's display is not what is pictured in the leaked images and it doesn't seem to match up with other Vivo or known handsets, either. So, while it may be a good idea to take the provided details of the images with a grain of salt until further notice, the images do appear at least to hint at a new handset.
