According to rumours the Xplay will be launched on May 7th and pricing could be as low as 2999 Yuan ($483) which will definitely upset Oppo as the Xplay boasts a very similar specification to the Oppo Find 5, but with some notable updates.
The biggest difference between the Oppo Find 5 and Vivo Xplay is the CPU, the Oppo uses a quad-core Snapdragon S4, while the Xplay is rumoured to run the newer, and more powerful Snapdragon 600 quad-core chip.
From the leaked photo above, the Xplay also appears to be thinner and have narrower screen bezels than the Find 5, which could make it more appealing not to mention more comfortable to use.[ Source ]
