Vivo makes Vivo Xplay3S rumours a thing of the past by posting specifications


There is certainly one great way to stop rumours from spreading and that’s just to come out publishing everything yourself, just as Vivo have done with the Xplay 3S specifications.

Incase the various teaser images from Vivo weren’t enough to point us in the right direction, Vivo have gone and put together a list of the Xplay 3S specifications in what is pure smartphone-porn!

Vivo have mentioned on numerous occasions that the Xplay 3S would be a true flagship phone, one which will leave other devices eating it’s dust for time to come, and with a 2560 x 1440 2K display, Snapdragon 800 CPU, 3GB RAM, 4G LTE, USB 3.0, f1.8 aperture camera and even a Hi-Fi chip, we are entitled to believe them!

    LTE (TD and FDD), 3GB of RAM, Snapdragon 800 AB, this phone is kicking some serious behind!!! I hope the 2K resolution won’t hamper performance though…

      Hardcore smartphone-porn, should I say! 😉

      It seems 2014 could be the Chinese Premium Smartphones Year.

      My dream is Lenovo/Huawei/XiaomiOppo/Vivo making an ultra-phone with Ubuntu OS, Qualcomm A50 series (4x Cortex A57 + 4x Cortex A53) @2,5Ghz + 4-6 GB RAM + 128 GB eMMC, 2-3 days battery and a GOOD camera (with optical zoom would be great!), and the full desktop experience provided by Ubuntu. Oh, and dual boot with Android 4.4 → 5.X. A w e s o m e.

      Even Samsung should take this phone makers into account!

      64bit SOC and real time noise cancellation
      together with battery that lasts a week with all sensors on,4k screen and gorilla glass that never breaks.

      till such a time its no porn not even soft porn.
      how many people in this forum keep all features(sensors ,gprs, gps) turned on all the time on any phone brand.
      Even brand like samsung cant give such phone which you can really throw around.

          its next gen battery made from silicon microparticles coated on electrodes
          Called “Self Healing battery”.

    The Vivo Xplay 3S is taking the fight too the Galaxy Note 3! And by the looks of it, Vivo could actually win this! It’s got everything the Note 3 has (Minus the stylus), and then some (f/1.8 aperture, 2k display, HiFi audio). Hopefully a decently sized battery is in there too.

    Why 2K? What a stupid thing to do.

    • Zalzala

      Vivo is coming up with 2K display may be because every consumer of
      this generation have higher expectations and every hyped manufacturer
      goes for something unique to offer to be at par.
      For example 1080P
      display in mobiles were vague an year ago and I wonder a year later they
      too might become history like WVGA or qHD displays

    We are observing ia world where we opt to carry not just a smartphone but its “higher-end specifications too” but Indeed never use its high-end features as they never needed.

      I’m sorry for you, if you don’t use the features your phone offer…. In my case I could easily use 3Gb of RAM on multi-tasking and the extra power of the Snapdragon 800 would be needed for it. The only thing this phone packs and i wouldn’t actually need is the 2K display (although it would truly cool to rub that my chinese phone has such a display on the faces of some friends ‘o mine that are more or less macfags…)

        Well said, appreciate! Please list out any 5 major differences in the given specs if you’d rather compare it with quad core 2GB 1080P mobiles.
        Expecting your reply!

          Challenge accepted!

          1- USB 3.0 allows for faster charging and data transfering between laptops and smartphones. This is especially helpful when the item you are trying to charge has a big battery that takes longer to charge with a normal USB 2.0 cable.

          2- 3GB RAM allows for more heavy multitasking, and is very helpful when gaming and using features like multi window.

          3- 4G FDD LTE is one of the most sought after features in current age smartphones. It also helps that the Xplay 3S is the first smartphone from a Chinese company (other than Huawei) that comes with LTE.

          4- Audiophiles everywhere loved the Hi-Fi audio in the original Xplay. Even if you aren’t an audiophile, as soon as you turn on the Hi-fi option, there was an undeniable difference in sound quality that usually only came with higher priced DACs.

          5- f/1.8 aperture camera is really nice for low light photography. Another thing I would like to draw attention too is the small Xenon flash in picture of the Xplay 3S. If this really is a feature in the Xplay 3S, it’s definitely a killer one.

          Also, let’s add in two more small things…..

          6- One handed operation mode. Makes life easier when using the Xplay single handed, and is extremely easy to bring up and use. I really want to see Vivo’s version of this feature in other large devices, like the UMi Cross and Zopo ZP990.

          7- Vivo’s new Funtouch ROM is like the shininess of Meizu’s Flyme ROM mixed with MIUI’s functionality. Even though Funtouch is still in it’s beta form, I can already see what it can bring.

          Whew, that was long. These are all my current reasons to take this device over any other 2GB RAM 1080p phablet in the market. Cheers! 🙂

            Awesome Man….Vivo should not discover your views, if they see then they might hike it probably by extra bucks…Thanks

              I am a business Mgr and I use (Currently using Note3) my device mostly for Whatsapp, FB, Outlook and to jot down meetings and events plus regular calls and few card games and subway surfer..I think these specs are needed by extreme die-hard fans who just want the hights..(For gaming I prefer X-box and for cameras DSLRs..

        • Mateus
          November 19, 2013

          Well, Airyl said pretty much everything that suits the options you have on android right now…
          But I could also add that the extra RAM alongside with the CPU power could mean a smaller gap between laptops and smartphones as soon as devs start using the amount of power a phone like this offer. So, even though many people will only buy a Xplay3S because it is the most feature packed one (without even using its features), some will actually use what is being offered, and in the end this phone will help pushing smartphones to a new level o possibilites.

    Do you think will it support Google Play out of the box? For example, as far as I know, Xiaomi phones don’t.
