Vivo releases first batch of Vivo Xplay 3s phones, sell out in 0.35 seconds!

vivo xplay 3s

0.35 seconds to sell out the first batch of flagship Vivo Xplay 3S phones sounds impressive, but as there were only 1000 phones to go around it is hardly surprising!

Vivo announced the Vivo Xplay 3S a few months ago, but has had to push back the release date of the phone twice already. What has caused the delays is unsure, but it could be anything from the all new 2K 2560 x 1440 6-inch display, fingerprint scanner or the F1.8 aperture rear camera.

Gizchina News of the week

After months of waiting though fans finally had a ray of sunshine today when Vivo announced that the first limited run of Xplay 3S phones would go on sale. The catch? Only 1000 phones would be up for grabs! Unsurprisingly all 1000 phones sold in record time.

We hope Vivo will soon have more Xplay 3S stock, and next time enough to satisfy just a few expectant fans.

    “0.35 seconds to sell out the first batch of flagship Vivo Xplay 3S phones sounds impressive”

    nope, quite the opposite… it sounds like the company is nowhere near capable to supply the demand and therefore wasting a massive revenue they could have made if they provided enough phones.

          It is listed by BBK to have no memory slot, and I have never seen a picture of a memory slot. A disassembly at shows no memory slot.
          I can’t believe I’ve pre-bought a phone with no memory slot. I’ve done it for the beautiful screen, audiophile system, and I was annoyed that Samsung didn’t put a FM radio in the Note 3. I’m dreaming that the delays are because BBK realised it should have a memory slot and are putting one into production … I know I’m dreaming. I’m planning on using a 64 GB small OTG flash drive, but then the phone can’t be charged at the same time. So terribly frustrating and stupid.

    Thanks God finally they released it. Its a beatiful phone, something which will look elegant in hand… I will surely buy one when it will be available in numbers… it is quite ironic that vivo only released 1000 phones? thats nothing compared to other manufacturers… vivo should hurry up n capitalize on 3s hype otherwise once the dust will settle down, it will become difficult to sell in huge numbers… other manufacturers have already announced great phones in MWC, leaving consumers with more choices…

    Andi, I was reading specifications of XP 3s on and it is mentioned there that this phone has no memory card extension… is it true?
