Vivo X5 Max, 4.75mm thin and keeps its 3.5mm headphone jack


vivo teaser

Oppo might have had to ditch an SD card and 3.5mm headphone jack on the Oppo R5, but Vivo aim to keep both on their 4.75mm Vivo X5 Max.

Vivo have always marketed their smartphones as “Hifi and smart” as their devices have always offered great audio performance regardless of where they fitted in to the overall range.

Many fans had this in mind when initial rumours of the 4.75mm Vivo X5 Max were released, would Vivo ditch their audio capabilities by removing the 3.5mm headphone jack to keep their phone slim as Oppo had?

Well the answer, according to Chinese news sources is ‘No, they won’t’. Apparently the ultra-thin Vivo X5 Max will not only be the worlds thinnest phone once it is officially unveiled, but also pack a standard headphone jack and even a micro SD card slot!

On top of all that camera performance will also be on par with their similar products with a 13 mega-pixel sensor snapping images which an be viewed on a 1920 x 1080 display. LTE and a powerful 64bit Mediatek processor are also part of the package.

Apparently Vivo will release the Vivo X5 Max in December alongside the all new flagship Vivo Xplay 5S. Keep posted for more news.

    we’ll talk about thin devices when battery technology makes a major leap. otherwise, go fuck yourselves and your marketing bullshit.

      This is just about grabbing headlines, all companies do this to a certain extent to showcase what they can do. At the end of the day its publicity, doesn’t matter how good/bad the product is and this one looks very good (with possible exception of the battery). We will have to wait and see once its released how it fairs against the competition.

      The major leap made with a53 Cortex @ 20nm. That means 20% less cpu energy and about 50% standby energy. Also with OGS technology. The batteries are VERY good for now (imagine a small battery carrying 3100mAh)

        ahhh yes… so we are content on the primitive battery tech because we have a “major” leap with a53’s.

          Fortunately yes. Your problem is not the ..battery!!! You can’t have 8 processors and 4gb of ram with an 1 terraflop gpu within 4.5 mm! So if you want something like that, buy a great phone in 8mm. And Li-ion tech saved our asses several times. Imagine us with Ni-Cd batteries!

            yes my problem is the battery and ridiculousness of thin phones and overpowered mobile devices which we never actually use its full potential. pay attention next time.

      The major “leap” (if you want to call it that) is already made. It’s the ginormous displays that can hardly fit in your pocket. Now that everyone and his dog is convinced that he needs a phablet, making them ultrathin is the next logical step. They have gigantic surfaces so you can fit underneath equally big (in two dimensions) yet thin batteries.

      so congratz, we’d soon carry “portable” tables with us. They will be like 1 mm in thickness yet 1m high , but my old Nokia which is 10 times as thick is far more portable as its dimensions are well distributed.

      In two words, it’s easy to fit a gigantic yet slim battery in an equally gigantic device, so don’t you worry, I think you should worry more for lugging around a f#$%@ing table.

        lol, ah yes 2k displays on little 5 inch displays… that is major leap for something we do not need on a mobile device.

          I wouldn’t call 5 inches little for a phone. One can always bring along his/her tablet is he/she wants screen real estate. And of course 2k is equally a gimmick.

          If my galaxy S2 loaded with the latest cm version and a bigger battery is almost as fast and probably more useful (due to its ergonomic dimensions) compared to a modern phone, it shows you the sorry state of the industry. It keeps producing things that we do not need or want, ones that are actually worse than the ones we already had. And of course we keep buying because we *have to* have the newest thing even though it may be a glittering pos.

            2k display on a 5-inch device not small? lol. 2k displays shouldn’t be even on mobile devices with atchaic battery technologies. now slap in there a monster SoC and whatever useless shit we can cram into the damn thing so we can sell it to the idiots who loves ‘flagship” devices with features that 99% of the time they do not really use.
