Borderless Vivo X5 to launch April named the Vivo Xplay

Rumours of BBK’s borderless Vivo X5 are back in the news today after sources close to the company revealed the new phone could be named the Vivo XPlay and will launch as early as May.

Vivo currently have a number of well made Android phones on sale in China, with the current flagship model being the Vivo X1 which measures in at just 6.55mm! The X1 will soon get updated to the dual-sim X1s, but will be relegated from flagship status as an all new 5-inch phone is on the way.

The next phone to come out of BBK’s factories is said to be the Vivo X5, a 5-inch 1080 Android smartphone and the world’s first borderless phone! The X5, which is currently known internally as the Vivo XPlay, will ship with a quad-core Mediatek MT6589 processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB storage and similar audio features as the X1.

The render above looks to be either an early design, or could be the Vivo X3 which we have yet to hear anything about, however we could see the X3 launch alongside the Vivo X5 as early as April!

Pricing isn’t going to be cheap though, with the Vivo X5 going on sale for 3298 Yuan ($529) more than the Oppo Find 5!
