Yesterday, Vivo announced the Vivo XPlay 5 flagship which turned out to be the first 6GB RAM smartphone. The phone features pretty powerful specifications along with smart software to ensure the best performance. In the looks department as well, the phone is pretty impressive. It features a dual curved edge display, similar to the Galaxy S6 Edge in an all metal body that accounts for nearly 98% metal.
The body is made out of aluminum-magnesium alloy with a lot of processing on it like zirconium sanding, double c-cut edges, single crystal diamond mirror coating etc. The phone is pretty slim as well, featuring a 7.59mm body. There are two color options available namely champagne gold and rose gold.
As for the specs, the phone comes with a Super AMOLED 5.43-inch display with 2K resolution. Under the hood, there’s 4GB/ 6GB RAM options and SD652 / SD820 CPU depending on the variant. The Elite version features the much powerful SD820. For storage, you get 128GB which is more than enough for your everyday needs.
At the back, there’s a Sony IMX298 sensor with electronic OIS and dual tone flash. Front features an 8MP shooter. Despite its thin size, the company has managed to fit in a large 3600mAh battery with twin charging chips. Finally, there are Hi-Fi chips on both the variants to ensure that the audio output is top-notch.
There’s no doubt that this is a powerful handset. The standard XPlay 5 version starts at 3698 Yuan ($564) while the Elite version retails for 4288 Yuan which is close to $654.
