Update: Vivo Xplay leaked ahead of tonights launch, shows 5.7-inch display

Update: Pricing for the Vivo Xplay has been confirmed at 2998 Yuan ($486). No details at to an international launch yet. We will bring full launch details soon!

It looks as though we can finally stop speculation on the size of the Vivo Xplay’s display as new leaked photos and spec sheets confirm a 5.7-inch 1080p display will be used.

In addition to the size sources are also reporting that the screen will be a LTPS (Low-temperature polysilicon screen) keeping the display bright while reducing power consumption, OCA optical bonding technology for improved viewing and 2.3mm narrow bezels.

    Will this be available Internationally? (Side Note: I live in the Untied States) If so could you perhaps list the names of a few reputable sellers online that don’t mark up the prices to where their 100$ more then retail like most places & wont scam you XP Unless of course you have the gizchina shop up and running then i’ll indefinitely buy from you ^_^

      Are you looking for an awesome 2G phone? Unless Vivo is purposely underreporting the radio hardware inside the Xplay, it will not work on any 3G bands used in the USA.

        Woah I did not know that this phone was only 2g XP I’m Looking for a 3g phone 5 inch plus screen 1080p scratch resistant display quad core that will work with 3g in the us at around 350$ so If anyone could recommend something that fits my criteria that would be pretty cool haha 😛

        they are better then the xiamomi and jiayu?

        • May 7, 2013

          xiaomi is riding the waves with their specs and cheap price but if you are looking for a cheaper price with good specs under $300 than i would choose jiayu G4 with a MTK6589 Quad Core, 2G RAM, 4Gb to 34GB ROM and a 4.7 Inch HD IPS Retina (res 1280×720) with gorrila glass 2 and 13mp rear camera all being sold for $248.99 (higher or lower at certain sites also the price is for the basic is $218.99 so choose the advance for an extra 30 bucks)
