The name Vivo usually goes hand in hand with expensive, but the launch of the Vivo X5Pro yesterday has a surprisingly low price tag!
Yesterday Vivo announced the Vivo X5Pro for the Chinese phone market. Although not a flagship phone, it does have a number of features that aren’t very common on Android devices.
For example the phone boasts super fast PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus) for the main camera, an 8 mega-pixel front camera capable of taking 32mega-pixel selfies, a retina scanner for security and the usual HiFi audio chips that Vivo so often offer.
With those interesting features, high end glass and alloy build, and the usual mid range specifications (2GB RAM, 5.2-inch 1080 display, 64bit processor), many of us were expecting a typically high Vivo price tag but this is not the case.
Vivo today announced the Vivo X5Pro will be available from 25th May at a price of only 2598 Yuan ($419) which is lower than usual for a Vivo phone. Vivo plan to release the Vivo X5Pro in their other global markets between now and July, we hope pricing is kept at around the same.
