According to the Geekbench listing, the Vivo V30 is equipped with 12 GB of RAM and runs on Android 14. The chipset in question, presumably the Snapdragon 7 Gen 3, features a high-performance core clocked at 2.63GHz, three performance cores at 2.40GHz, and four efficiency cores at 1.80GHz. It also includes an Adreno 720 GPU.
