vivo xplay 5 full specs

Following on from this mornings GFXbench leaks are images that confirm specs of the Vivo Xplay 5. Keep reading for more.

Looking at the most recent GFXbench listings, and these newly leaked Vivo Xplay 5 advertisements, it looks like the Vivo Xplay 5 specs are pretty much confirmed and that includes 4GB RAM and the curved display.

The images posted on Weibo today (which could still be fake) show the Vivo Xplay 5 in pink, gold, silver colour options, with a touch fingerprint scanner on the rear, dual LED flash and rear 16 mega-pixel camera. The design is similar to the current Vivo X6 Plus, but with a screen size of just 5.43-inch the physical size of the phone will be smaller.

Speaking of the display, the images clearly show a curved front panel in the same style as the display on the Samsung S7 Edge, but which less of a curved area. The screen is listed as being a Super AMOLED model with 2K resolution (which matches this mornings benchmarks).

vivo xplay 5 full specs

The specs also list just 4GB RAM, where as Vivo’s own teasers mention 6GB RAM. 4GB RAM is also what the benchmarks listed, so is this a ‘lite’ version of the Xplay 5? We won’t know for sure, but very early Vivo Xplay 5 leaks did mention that Vivo might be using 2GB memory for graphics only, were not sure if this is the case or how that will work with the Snapdragon 820 but it would explain the difference in specs. There could also be 2 versions of the phone launching that would explain these specs and the earlier teasers.

Internal memory of the phone is listed at 128GB, or which 111GB is expected to be available to the user.

For those of you planning to buy the Vivo Xplay 5 from China and ship it home it might be worth noting that the specs here list the phone as having only FDD-LTE support for bands 1 and 3, however in the past Vivo (and Oppo) phones have been proven to work on more international bands than officially listed and hopefully this might be the case here.

Other specifications include a 3600mAh battery, which judging from the optimisation on the Vivo X6 Plus could be good for over 2 days of use easily. A 16 mega-pixel camera and front 8 mega-pixel camera are also mentioned.

One last interesting detail is the left hand image on the second leak. This photo shows that the Vivo Xplay 5’s Funtouch OS has dual screen support built-in meaning you can run 2 apps at once! Very cool.

It still remains to be seen if these leaks are the real deal, but we will know for sure tomorrow.

    a bit disappointed, well at least thl is making phones again

    • LOL wait for tomorrow when it’s official. Double LOL cos you mentioned THL ….

      • balcobomber25

        Haha I am a huge THL fan but even I wouldn’t compare them to Vivo….

      • Marco Lancaster

        Haha Now we know if someday Vivo stop their business at least we have THL.

    • Rob

      Can’t believe you put vivo and thl in the same sentence! Lol

    • balcobomber25

      They are?? Where did you see that I love THL.

      • Assefa Hanson

        i love thl as well http://en.thl.com.cn/default.aspx the t7 is their first 2016 phone

        • balcobomber25

          Just Google’d it and saw it on TinyDeal. Looks like a decent budget offering.

          • Assefa Hanson

            indeed, maybe they will release the flagship in summer? i know they dont make alot of phones each year, they just focus on a few

  • Rob

    Please, please, please let these be fake, where’s the 6″ display? Hoping this is just a lite version and the full version has 6gb ram and a 6″ display otherwise I will have to keep looking for my perfect phone. The only good news I suppose is that vivo are known for leaking ‘fake specs/images’, really hoping this is the case here.

    • 5.43 inches is about the perfect screen size for me.

    • SheyMo

      saw oppomart and giztop list Xplay 5s with 6inch and SD805

      • same people own both stores, and they probably posted that nonsense months ago.

        • SheyMo

          k, thx, good to know haha

          • Rob

            That’s been listed like that for over a year that I know of, so don’t take any notice of it!

          • balcobomber25

            Yea don’t go by resellers they often post phones months before an official launch and they guess on specs/price or go off of leaks.

        • Rob

          Hi Andi, will you be at the Vivo launch tomorrow??

    • realjjj

      Vivo has been teasing SD820 and 6GB of RAM ,this one is SD652(showed up in Geekbench and GFXBench) and 4GB so there must be another model.
      Maybe they go like Apple, 5 is small and 5s is big.

  • On these pictures it seems like copy&paste iDiot&S6 Edge. I doubt it will support B1/3/7/8/20 tho but will check specs tomorrow 🙂 I was stupid I didn’t use 50$ coupon for OP2 week ago.

    • I tried to go back to my OP2 for MWC, can’t stand it. Much prefer the OPX, Mi5

      • I was thinking about OPX too, but everybody is bitch*n about camera (saying that on OP2 is better). And I was waiting for Mi5, but due to lack of LTE bands it’s useless for me :/ Otherwise I’d have perfect phone for me (in Prague LTE with Mi5 is fine – but when I go somewhere else it’s gonna be edge only as they are switching 3G off here).

        • OPX camera is ok, not Op2 standards but not bad. The OPX seems snappier and more responsive to me compared to the OP2. Also, OPX seems to have fewer bugs and is much nicer to carry and stick in your pocket.

          • I will wait for ZUK, what they are going to bring in March and then I will decide which phone I’m going to buy. After 4 years tho ^^ Truth is, that OP (OP2 & OPX) have everything I need (glonass, my lte bands, fhd screen not bigger than 5,5″). Also was considering Honor 7.

            • Just between you and me (before I write the post) the next ZUK is a mini phone with Helio P10 chipset

            • Nooooooooooooooooooo :D:D:D

            • balcobomber25

              That doesn’t mean a Z2 isn’t on the way as well.

            • True that. I wish I knew for how long my phone will stay alive so I could wait maybe for next OP (coz if I would go for OPX, it would be only ceramic version – not sure if glass would survive some fridays :)).

            • Damn. I was waiting for the next ZUK as i currently own the first one and I’m really happy with it.
              Waiting for your post…

            • SnowyCat

              i’m also looking for soemthign..but i’ll probably wait a few more months to see if anything comes from letv or meizu, as i like the mi5 design but i want a bigger display 🙁 looking towards 5,5″~

      • balcobomber25

        What don’t you like about the OP2?

        • Mi-fan

          Just look at the ridicolous design

          • balcobomber25

            I am not a fan of the OP2 at all, but remembered he was. Wondering what changed his mind.

            • Feels bulky and slow compared to the OPX.

          • balcobomber25

            Eh I think the S6/7 Edge is one of the ugliest phones ever made (except the recent design disasters by LG) so I am not a fan of this look.

  • balcobomber25

    Looks too much like a HTC, iPhone, Samsung all rolled into one.

    • Mi-fan

      I love it

    • Joel Adames

      I don’t see the HTC similarities but do see the other 2 veeeeeeery clearly!!!

  • Brooklyn701

    Lets hope the light Version gets FHD…. Rest is cool but the 2K just drains the battery

    • Joel Adames

      I know thats true for many devices but for well optimized ones, I doesn’t need to be that bad. I run a 3500mah on a 2k 6″ screen and I get my full day, on android 5.1 … As I haven’t had an update yet from the manufacturer I got myself DOZE (an app that does similar to the feature on MARSMELLOW…. With that a get a full day and some to spare. (plus my phone has kuik-charge which makes everything more beautiful)

      • Derevko

        I think is sad when we think that a full day use means a good battery life. I’d expect 48h with reasonable use. We’ve a lot of amazing resources but if we use them, then we have just 24h battery (which is horrible, not good).

        • Joel Adames

          I validate your point to me, but companies seem to be indifferent to a big of the market (that’s us “above”average knowledgeable ones) that does care about the whole thing and not just stetics forgetting about SOT performance and performance as a whole plus Optimization.

          A phone like this with 4500mah and SD-reader SHOULD BE read as PERFECT, no matter how much they say copied this copied that. But it won’t be perfect not even with that but it would be REALLY @#$& CLOSE

          • Derevko

            I agree. I really don’t care who copied who. Everyone is coping someone who did something before (created the smartphone, created touchscreen, created hands-free, created Bluetooth, created USB, created fast charging, created fingerprint unlock….). What matters for me is which company does it better. And what matters for me is which smartphone brings most of the good characteristics that are important for me together. Battery is the only thing that really annoys me in my 3-year old HTC One (M7). Of course that we can find a lot of new technologies now, and I would like to have all of them, but not without a good battery (and good for me is more than 24h of reasonable use, 48h will be OK if I can let bluetooth, gps, wi-fi and all resources ON all the time without worrying about battery).

            • Joel Adames

              I would really like someone to copy that BLACKBERRY Priv then give it a back fingerprint reader to fix the empty space some people say some have in the back, and upgrade front camera and upgrade the speaker AND either an Exynos or an Sd820 geeez even a MtK-X20 could do a better trick that the 808 (yeah I know is a good processor but if it is going to go main sail it needs to have everything top shelf (from either companies/suppliers) to claim that kind of price….

              The same goes for the real PRIV 2

              🙂

  • Reggie

    Ok now we have to wait and see What bring oppo find 9 to us

  • HBK

    If the leaks are true, I dont like the design. Loved the design of the Xplay 3s. This is a Step back IMO. The back looks bad and the seems like No stereo speakers this time. Not on front, Not on back so another bottom mounted speaker i guess.

  • Joel Adames

    Would be my perfect phone design wise, but the camera being off centered blew it, still looks good though.

    Hope they won’t ruin it even more by missing the SD-reader (just because of the 128gb)
    And if they somehow manage to put some great audio chip or a dual speaker arrangement somehow it would be then NEAR perfect!!!

  • realjjj

    Hopefully this is the cheaper model and the flagship has a better implementation for the curved screen. This is weak and the back is overused.

  • Sean Marrinan

    their specs are always next generation but their support is terrible . if the sales don’t do well which they wont because its to expensive anyway they will abandon you . Letv Le Max Pro looks a beast.

    • Derevko

      But Le Max Pro was released but no one has found it. The communication between Leeco and its consumers doesn’t start well. I’ve an htc one m7 for almost three years, now I decided to buy a new phone. Almost bought the nexus 6p but got frustrated with some specs. Now I’m waiting for Leeco, Doogee, Vivo or other nice release but most companies don’t have good communication. They announce and disappear, or don’t give any new information about the release. Last week we saw a lot of ‘Leeco release the first Snapdragon 820 for sale’. Probably not true since no one found it even in China.

      • Sean Marrinan

        Pophong store in aliexpress have it for sale shipping from March 1st . I had the vivo xplay 3s and they officially killed updates for it. On their forums they wont even let people discuss rooting it or custom Roms and deleted most of the info and help others put up. For 600+ its probably best to just stick with a Samsung or other good brand.

        • Derevko

          Pophong offering the Le Max Pro for AUD 920.00 (nonsense).
