Vivo Xshot3 Images Surface Showing Off Vivo’s Upcoming Handset

April 27, 2015 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

We haven’t heard from Vivo in quite some time. The company has, however, teased their Vivo X5Pro handset recently, but it seems like that’s not the only device his China-based OEM intends to launch soon. Vivo X5Pro is said to sport a rather sizeable battery and a 3D curved display. A rather capable camera has also been teased by the company, but we’re not here to talk about the X5Pro, but another Vivo-branded handset that leaked quite recently, the Vivo Xshot 3.

Two images surfaced in China which allegedly show off Vivo’s upcoming Xshot 3 handset. Neither of these two images show us the whole device, but we do get to see parts of it at the very least. The first image shows off the handset’s rather big and protruding camera on the back which is flanked by a dual-LED, dual tone flash. This camera sensor seems really huge and according to the source, we’re looking at a 16-megapixel OIS camera here. The second image in the gallery down below reveals that the handset will also offer a physical camera shutter button. This handset will sport metal frame and three buttons below the display, we get to see only the home and back button here, but the third one is quite probably a menu key, at least based on Oppo’s previous offerings.

The source also says that this handset will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 64-bit octa-core processor and that it will offer 4GB of RAM. The 8-megapixel camera will be available on the front side of this device and it seems like both back and front side of the handset will be covered by 2.5D glass. This leak did not specify when this handset might launch, but based on some previous info, this handset might actually arrive next month alongside the Vivo Xshot 5Pro. There you have it folks, this is the alleged Vivo Xshot 3 handset. In case you’d like to check out its predecessor, the Xshot, follow this link which will take you to our hands-on coverage with that handset. Stay tuned for more info, we’ll report back as soon as we stumble upon some extra content.
