Vivo has been teasing a lot of features about the upcoming Vivo XPlay 5 flagship. The phone is going to come with a whopping 6GB of RAM on board, along with the powerful Snapdragon 820. Now, the same phone has been spotted on the benchmarking website GFXbench as well as Geekbench.
The GFXBench listing reveals that the Vivo PD1522A, most likely the XPlay flagship will feature a 5.4-inch 2K display (2560 x 1440p). However, benchmarking apps often mistake the screen size of the device, so let’s wait for an official confirmation. As for the other specs, the phone features a Snapdragon octa-core chipset clocked at 1.8GHz (most like SD 652) with 4GB of RAM on board. Yes, this seems to be the low-end version, as the company has confirmed a high-end 6GB RAM model of the device which ships with Snapdragon 820.
Vivo has been quite generous with the on board storage, providing a massive 128GB ROM. So, even if there’s no MicroSD card slot (currently we can’t confirm it), storage space won’t be an issue. Other specs as revealed by GFXBench include 16MP rear camera with 4K support and an 8MP front facing shooter with 2K video support. This seems to be a single SIM model without NFC.
So, it looks like there will be two version of the XPlay 5, one with SD652 and 4GB and the other with SD820 and 6GB of RAM. Recently, two Vivo XPlay 5 models passed 3C certification in China, namely Vivo XPlay 5 A and XPlay 5 L further adding to its possibility.
Moreover, the same model was spotted on the Geekbench website, revealing decent scores. The device was running on an underpowered variant of the Snapdragon 615 clocked at just 1.4GHz with 4GB RAM on board. So, it managed to score just 1587 and 4667 in the single and multi-core tests respectively.
We will have to wait for the performance of the high-end variant with 6GB of RAM. AnTuTu benchmark showed that the phone was going to be powerful, so it’s only a matter of time that the true power of this SD820 device is confirmed again on apps like Geekbench and GFXBench.
Come March 1, we will meet the world’s first 6GB RAM smartphone. The company has even released a video to show how fast it is as compared to the iPhone 6S powered by the powerful Apple A9 chipset. You can check out that video from here. [source]
