Vivo is back with another “Xplay” device, this one the Xplay5, and it’s managed to shove in a bunch of hardware specs into its “Flagship Edition” device to please spec lovers.
First and foremost, the Xplay5 Flagship Edition boasts a whopping 6GB of RAM, the first mobile device to offer that much. It also has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor under the hood, 128GB of built-in storage, and a built-in battery that measures 3600mAh that supports rapid charging. The device also features a “HiFi 3.0″ package, which Vivo says means the handset has three amplifiers for a boost to sound quality as well as a pair of SABRE Mobile DAC chips.
Then there’s the regular version of the Xplay5, which features 4GB of RAM and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor. It also includes 128GB of built-in storage and the same 3600mAh built-in battery as the Flagship Edition.
The rest of the features are the same between the handsets. They both offer a 5.4-inch QHD Super AMOLED display and a fingerprint reader on the back. The camera on the back is a 16-megapixel shooter from Sony, featuring phase-detection autofocus and a dual-tone LED flash. There’s an 8-megapixel front-facing camera on both phones. Interestingly enough, the Xplay5 is running Android 5.1 under Vivo’s proprietary interface.
The regular edition of the Vivo Xplay5 is available to pre-order right now, and it costs 3,698 yuan (about $560). The Flagship Edition will cost 4,288 yuan (about $650), but there’s no word on when it will launch.
