6GB RAM version of the Vivo Xplay 5 on sale tomorrow

vivo xplay 5 ultimate

While the Vivo Xplay 5A (with 4GB RAM) has been available for a few weeks already the Xplay 5 Ultimate will only go on sale tomorrow.

If you have been waiting for a phone with 6GB RAM, Snapdragon 820 chipset and a curved display then the Vivo Xplay 5 Ultimate is the only Chinese phone to fit the bill and it will go on sale tomorrow.

This ‘ultimate’ version of the Xplay 5 features the same 2K curved Samsung panel as the Xplay 5A, but in addition to the more powerful processing hardware also gets an update in the audio hardware department.

Gizchina News of the week

As Vivo haven’t announced an international version of the Xplay 5 customers outside of China will have to order the phone through resellers, but as the Chinese RRP is 4288 Yuan expect reseller pricing to be closer to $750!

If you don’t need a curved display then the ZUK Z2 Pro offers very similar hardware at a much lower price (details here).

    there is no HiFi audio in ZUK Z2 and i wouldn’t expect same level of camera performance as Vivo’s
