Default [Q] Why is Incredible S CPU msm7x30?

Hey there!

I have just received a vivo, and I would like to develop for it. The phone's specs state that vivo is msm8255, but when I look into the device tree of the phone, the ROMs use msm7x30 platform. Can someone please explain this to me?

Also, does anyone know the name of chips in vivo. This is a very hard thing to find. For example, the bluetooth is BCM4329.
If no one has this information then it is alright, but I would like to my first question answered.

Thank You.
Phone: Samsung Galaxy S II GT-I9100T (Vodafone AU)
ROM: Ehndroix (always the latest version)

You should PM Szeszo on this stuff. He is our main developer and has been pretty much our only developer for almost half a year now. He knows this device inside out

100% same chipset as the 7x30 devices, our 8255 is essentially an overclocked 7x30 like on desire z
That's why desire z has same chipset as us

Bcm 4329 is WiFi too, but bcmdhd is used for AOSP and sense 4 which is ported from One V or latest prima

Wikipedia has some good information

Why is it so important? As poondog said, our CPU just an msm7x30 on higher clock. But we have that CPU's board name, why? Qualcomm knows... Like the MSM8225 and MSM8625Q (dual and quad-core Cortex-A5 CPUs) has msm7x27a board names. Why? Qualcomm knows...

Current devices:

Samsung Galaxy Express LTE (expressltexx, GT-i8730) -> CyanogenMod 11

hTC Incredible S (vivo, S710e) -> Vivokat 4.4.4

Future devices:

Samsung Galaxy Express, for a loooong time, it seems.

The hTC Incredible S will be here, till it can handle newer Android versions..
