Its no secret that I have had a past love affair with Vivo, but it is also common knowledge that I’m not super impressed with their latest phones, so news of the Vivo Xplay 5S comes is very welcome.
My first Vivo was the Xplay 3S and was bought due to my poor experience with my Oppo Find 7 and Oppo’s (Chinese) customer service. The Vivo Xplay 3S is such an amazing phone (yes, I still have it) that I had to have the Vivo Xshot too which went on to by my pick of best phone for 2014.
It must be getting on for 2 years since the Xplay 3S launched so it is good to finally hear details of the Vivo Xplay 5S and what it might offer.
According to Chinese tech site Anzhou, the next flagship Vivo Xplay 5S will feature a Snapdragon 820 chipset, 6-inch 4K display, 4GB RAM, 64GB internal memory, 21 mega-pixel rear camera, 12 mega-pixel front camera and 4000mAh battery. Drool, Drool, Drool!
Gizchina News of the week
What isn’t mention is a fingerprint scanner, but as Vivo were one of the first to use a fingerprint scanner (first in Chinese phones at least) we can expect something cool from the company, ultrasonic fingerprint tech perhaps?
If the Vivo Xplay 5S is set to launch before Christmas then we can expect strong competition from the Oppo Find 9, Xiaomi Mi5, and at the rate Meizu are going the Meizu MX6 Pro 6 Plus….
