Two Vivo-branded products have been leaked, rumored and teased lately, the Vivo X5Pro and Xshot 3 handsets. After a number of Vivo X5 Pro leaks, the company has confirmed that the phone will launch on May 13, which is only 2 days away. That handset will sport a retina scanner, a premium build and will quite probably be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 615 64-bit octa-core processor. The Xshot3 is a mystery at this point however. That being said, it seems like Vivo is preparing to launch a third handset which we haven’t seen thus far, the Vivo X5Max S, read on.
The Vivo X5Max S has been certified by TENAA (China’s equivalent to the FCC), and thanks to that listing, we now know its specifications. The most noticeable thing about this device is its battery, a huge 4,150mAh unit which is located on the inside. We’ve already seen this battery mentioned in connection with the Vivo X5Pro, but it seems like the X5Max S will be the device sporting such a big battery unit, so you can basically expect a somewhat smaller battery in the X5Pro which will launch in two days. Anyhow, according to TENAA’s listing, the X5Max S will feature a 5.5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage (expandable up to 128GB via a microSD card). This handset will be powered by MediaTek’s MT6752 64-bit octa-core processor and 4G LTE connectivity will also be available here, and same can be said about the dual SIM connectivity as well. The 13-megapixel camera will be available on the back of this device, and a 5-megapixel snapper will be located up front. Android 4.4.4 KitKat will come pre-installed on Vivo X5Max S according to the listing, and Vivo’s Funtounch OS will be available on top of it. Vivo X5Max S will measure 153.90 x 78 x 7.29mm and will weight 191 grams.
The X5Max S is a slightly different variant of the X5Max handset Vivo announced back in December last year. The X5Max S will feature a different SoC (MediaTek compared to the Snapdragon used in the X5Max) and a significantly bigger battery on the inside. The screen size and resolution, RAM count and internal storage remain intact here, even the Android version will remain the same it seems. We still don’t know when Vivo plans to release the X5Max S, but considering the device was already certified by TENAA, we presume that will happen rather soon.
