6.55mm BBK Vivo X1 priced at $400 comes with Jelly Bean

I’m not entirely sure what the guy’s over at BBK had been smoking today, but it must have been some pretty strong stuff for them to launch their latest dual-core Vivo X1 for the astronomical sum of $400!

While we shouldn’t really be all that surprised by the retail price of the Vivo X1 (it’s been rumoured for almost a month now) I’m still shocked that this dual-core MT6577 phone is priced so high!

In China the Vivo X1, now the world’s thinnest Android phone at just 6.55mm with a 1.2Ghz CPU, 1GB RAM, 8 mega-pixel camera and Jelly Bean OS will go on sale at retail stores for 2498 Yuan ($400) where as the super powerful quad-core Xiaomi M2 is priced at only 1999 Yuan and the quad-core Newman N2 with 13 mega-pixel rear camera is just 1499 Yuan ($240)!

International customers hoping to get the Vivo X1 will likely be expected to pay nearer $500 which is far too much for a phone with this specification (the Umi X1 were giving away has almost the same spec!).
