4.75mm Vivo X5 Max launching 10th December with dual SIM

vivo x5 max launch

Vivo have announced the launch date for their uber thin Vivo X5 Max is set for 10th December. Here are some more details.

Vivo are set to steal the worlds thinnest smartphone crown from Oppo with their new Vivo X4 Max. Current the Oppo R5 is the worlds thinnest at 4.85mm but that phone lacks a 3.5mm head phone jack and other features which many smartphone users take for granted.

Vivo must have known this all along as their phone will not only be slightly thinner at 4.75mm but it will get a standard head phone jack along with a dual SIM tray! The dual SIM tray will even have the option to run two SIM cards or a single SIM plus micro SD card making this phone not only thin but very useable.

As for the rest of the specs well it is believe that the phone will have a 5-inch 1080 FHD display, 2GB RAM and run a 64bit Mediatek octacore processor. As usual Vivo are promising great audio performance in their thin package.

    Are you sure the screen size is 5 Inch? It was speculated to have 5.5 inches.

      you know I actually have held this phone, but now you bring it up it might have been 5.2.

        Vivo xplay 3s or this is better andi

    it sounds like they are on to a winner, need to see how power efficient the 64bit mediatek is as the battery will probably have to be fairly small. hopefully the camera will be half decent as well.

    What Vivo is doing is quite impressive. But there is quite significant price tag.

    • December 1, 2014

      Yup, Vivo are usually up there in the pricing

        But they are really worthy
        You said, vivo xshot have the best audio quality but in one site, 3 models of vivo(xshot/xplay/x5) had put under test and xplay was the best..I had the opportunity to check xplay 3s in my hand and it was really pure Sound

        Hope they release 2SIM Active(not just standby) and great battery in their xlay this year and camera better than note 4 to beat them all…If it will,..I dont think there is any hesitation(except cost) to not choose it

        by the way, tnx and keep it up

    What about the rest of the specs?

    It’s got 2 SIM trays, but what LTE frequencies?

    • December 1, 2014

      well guess we have to wait for the launch date

      • December 6, 2014

        Or you could use the “power of the press” and just ask them directly. 😉

    First 5+ inch phone with US LTE support will be my next phone.

    If I wanted this phone, I would probably only have for the novelty of having the thinnest phone around.

      Great Audio and also, MTK 64 bit proccessors are really Good,so Proccessing is also great…And Also, The Camera ,I think will be great too..the screen as always one of the best….so , i think your view is all about 2K instead of FHD and Ram3GB instead of 2GB

    Andi. Do you know if the Xplay 5 will be launched on Dec 10th, too?

  8. December 3, 2014

    Great. I’m a fan of Vivo and wait to see what they’ve got! Of course, they could be cheaper.. But at least they make premium products and don’t get too much “inspiration” from elsewhere.
