Vivo is a Chinese smartphone manufacturing company you have probably heard of by now. This company is mainly doing business in Asia though, so if you haven’t really familiar with them, that’s why. Anyhow, we’ve been hearing tons of rumors regarding the company’s upcoming Vivo XPlay 5 flagship, some of which even reported that the phone will include 6GB of RAM, which seemed crazy at the time, but is it? Read on.
The 6GB of RAM rumors seemed a bit off, but then Vivo decided to release a teaser image for the Vivo XPlay 5 flagship on their official Weibo (Chinese social network) page, and basically confirm that the device will not only be fueled by the Snapdragon 820 64-bit octa-core SoC, but also ship with a whopping 6GB of RAM on the inside. Now, this smartphone will be introduced on March 1st in Beijing, and it will probably be the world’s first smartphone to pack in 6GB of RAM, unless something crazy happens and Xiaomi releases a 6GB RAM variant of the Xiaomi Mi 5. Now, Vivo has already confirmed that the XPlay 5 will ship with a dual edge display, and that’s pretty much it as far as official info goes.
Now, as for the rumored specs, the Vivi XPlay 5 might sport a 6-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) panel up front, and a 4,300mAh battery on the inside. The 16-megapixel snapper will allegedly going to be located on the phone’s back, and an 8-megapixel shooter will be available up front, presuming the rumors are accurate. The fingerprint scanner has also been mentioned quite a few times thus far, and 4G LTE connectivity will be included as well. Knowing Vivo, the company will quite probably release more info about this device before they announce it, they tend to share quite a bit of info via Weibo before their announcements. That being said, the Vivo XPlay 5 will quite probably be made out of metal as well, and as soon as the company decides to share some additional info about this phablet, we’ll make sure to let you know, stay tuned for that.
