If you have been keeping up to date with the Vivo Xplay 5 news, especially yesterday, then most of the hardware for the flagship Vivo isn’t going to be much of a surprise.
As yesterday’s leaks mentioned, the current official specs for the Vivo Xplay 5 include a 5.43-inch 2K display, 3600mAh battery, Snapdragon 820 chipset and 6GB RAM.
Update 1: We haven’t seen very clear images of the Vivo Xplay5 yet, but it does appear to have a curved glass display and uses a panel from Samsung Display. Other features of the phone’s design are an all metal body and USB Type plug.
Update 2: The Vivo Xplay 5 has something called WIFI+. We’re waiting on more details about what this could be.
Update 3: Vivo have confirmed that the internal memory of the Vivo Xplay 5 is 128GB, and that the phone’s fingerprint scanner will operate in just 0.2 seconds, I can believe this too as the Vivo X6 Plus has instant unlock with the fingerprint and is (so far) 100% accurate.
