BBK’s Vivo brand of Android phones has really stepped up! Last year they launched the thinnest 6.55mm Android phone on the market, and now it appears they are looking to launch the world’s first borderless phone!
What we have above is a leaked photo of the purported screen for the Vivo X5. As the name would suggest, the X5 will be a 5-inch phone, but a closer look at the photo shows that there is a significant different between this 5-incher and others currently listed.
The image distinctly shows that the X5 will be a borderless phone with no bezel on either the left or right side of the display. This is a trend many manufacturers have been aiming towards, but it looks as though Vivo have beaten them to it.

Now for the exciting part! It appears that Vivo are already gearing up to launch the 5-inch Vivo X5, as this photo shows the Vivi team preparing for a launch show! We can see that the X5 will in fact have a 1080 1920 x 1080 display and 13 mega-pixel rear camera, making the X5 a true rival for the UMi X2!
Sources close to Vivo have suggested the X5 will use a quad-core MT6589 CPU, with 2GB RAM, 32GB of built-in memory and a 2050 battery. The battery size may sound on the low side, but we believe it is due to a super thin design![ Source ]
