Vivo X7 retail mock up leaks ahead of launch


Vivo’s X7 has leaked ahead of launch, but it’s not an actual phone that has been spied rather a dummy device meant for retail stores.

Head in to any busy retail store across the world and you will know that chances are you might not actually get your hands on a real working device to play around with. Instead many retailers tend to use dummy phones so people to get an idea of the look and feel of a phone, without the retail risk having a real device damaged or stolen.

In the past we have seen dummy iPhone and iPad Mini’s revealed ahead of schedule which ended up being accurate to what the final devices were, and today we have a Vivo X7 dummy to take a look at.

From the official leaks, and from looking at Vivo’s previous phones, the X7 design sees a move to a more iPhone like state, and in fact isn’t too different from the Oppo R9 in design.


The major change for the Vivo X7 is the fact the fingerprint scanner has been removed from the rear of the phone to the chin and located in an oval home button design. Again, this is very similar to the Oppo R9, and even the OnePlus 3.

So far Vivo have already teased that the phone will come with a Snapdragon 652 chipset and 16 mega-pixel front camera (plus front flash). Other details are believed to include a 5.7-inch 1920 x 1080 display, 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory.

Vivo will announce the Vivo X7 on the 30th June with sales expected to follow on the 3rd July at a cost of 2598 Yuan.

    I really dislike the look of all Vivo’s newest handsets, in the past the price has put me off buying one but now it’s both price and looks.

      To be fair they are owned by the same company (BBK). We have seen this in the past with Oppo and OnePlus sharing designs.

        I know, but in the past they were different nonetheless… This is the same phone with the same selling points… I expected more from vivo

            Guys let’s face Vivo has released only 2 great phones in their entire history. X Play 3 and Xshot. That’s it!

              I liked the X5 Max too. But i haven’t used enough of the other Vivo’s to say one way or the other. The three Vivo’s I did use were all excellent: Xshot (still one of the top camera phones), X5 Max and Xplay 3.
