Vivo XPlay launched with 5.7-inch 1080 display priced at $486

Last night at an event in Beijing, Chinese phone maker BBK launched their latest flagship phone the Vivo Xplay. A lot was already known about this phone prior to release, however the company still had a few surprises.

Although the specification of the Vivo Xplay has been common knowledge for a few weeks now, 2 details remained a mystery right up until last evenings launch, the size of the 1080HD display and the price.

If you caught our updated post yesterday you will already have learnt that the Xplay boasts a 1920 x 1080 FHD display measuring 5.7-inches! In comparison the Galaxy Note 2 has a 5.5-inch 720p display and the Huawei Ascend Mate has a 6.1-inch 720p display.

If you’re worried about the size of the Xplay and how difficult it might be to use one handed you needn’t as Vivo have included a neat feature which mirrors the display at a smaller, thumb friendly size to easy use.

As for pricing rumours had the Xplay price ranging from between $450 to $650, and in all honesty we were expecting the latter, so it was a shocking surprise to find that official pricing for the 16GB Vivo Xplay is 2998 Yuan ($480) which has this Chinese phablet competing with Oppo’s Find 5!

Unlike previous Vivo phones though (see Vivo X1) the Xplay is actually a bargain at $480 and manages to out shine the Oppo Find 5 in every way! Not only is the display larger o the Xplay, but the processor is the new Snapdragon 600 quad-core chip with Adreno 320 GPU, Vivo have also added an updated 5-mega-pixel front camera to the phone also.

The rest of the Vivo Xplay specification includes 2GB RAM, 13 mega-pixel rear camera and 3400mAh battery with dimensions measuring in at 153.8 x 79.68 x 7.99mm and a weight of 187g.
