Yesterday, we came to know that Vivo was working on a new flagship that could feature 2.5D round glass and a premium metal built. Now, it looks like the first possible images of the Vivo XPlay5S have been spotted.
Within a day of the confirmation, a user on Weibo has leaked three new images of the possible premium flagship. The device is said to feature a 2.5D curved frame with a double sided glass design.
From the images, we can see that the device is rounder than its predecessors, still looks extremely well built. Once again, like most recent Vivo devices, the body is extremely thin, which you can confirm from one of the images.
As for the display, the bezels on the sides look thin, but still its not as thin as the LeTV X900 or the new OPPO device that we have seen lately in leaks. However, the bezels are slimmer than most phones in the market right now, and the top and bottom bezels are too acceptable, despite the capacitive buttons at below the display.
You can see the Vivo branding at the back as well as the top left corner of the device up front. The speakers will be located at the bottom with the MicroUSB port in between.
Previous leaks have reported that the Vivo XPlay 5S will feature a 6-inch display with 2K resolution and Snapdragon 805 processor. There will be 3GB of RAM and 32GB on internal storage. The rear 13MP camera will have OIS while there will be an 8MP shooter up front.
XPlay series smartphones are known for their high quality sound performance, so expect the Vivo XPlay 5S too to continue this tradition with the top end audio chip.
Unfortunately, Vivo is not exactly an affordable smartphone manufacturer. Instead, the company focuses on quality workmanship and hardware on their smartphones offering at a premium price tag.
Anyways, we just have to wait for a month more to get official details as it is said that the company will announce the Vivo Xplay 5S flagship in May. [source]
