The benchmark shows the processor features a Cortex-X2 Super Core running at 2.42GHz, three 2.17GHz Cortex-A710 Power cores, and four efficiency 1.79GHz Cortex-A510 cores.
It confirms the GPU is the Andreno 730, which is expected to be a big step up from the Andreno 660 in the Snapdragon 888.
The scores are considerably lower than for the Snapdragon 888, but this likely because the processor is being severely throttled.
The chipset appears to be tested on a Vivo device, but there are rumours that the device will show up in the upcoming Huawei P60.
Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 888 processor in December 2020, and will likely announce their new flagship around the same time this year.
