Yesterday at the time of launch, Vivo did not unveil the pricing of its new flagship. But earlier today, the company has finally revealed that the Vivo X5Pro smartphone will be available for purchase for just 2598 Yuan which comes to around $420. This turns out to be a great price for a device with features that include Phase Detection AutoFocus and Iris recognition.

Other tech specs are also pretty good. The phone features Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor under the hood with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. There is a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED display up front with a resolution of 1920 x 1080p. The rear 13MP camera will have PDAF, better than the iPhone 6 and the front camera will be of 8MP which can take 32MP resolution selfies as well as act as an IRIS scanner.

The phone comes with 2300mAh battery, which is a bit small as compared to competitors. But for the sacrifice in battery, you get a super slim body measuring just 6.44mm with 2.5D glass on both the sides. Finally, it will run on Android 5.0 Lollipop version with Funtouch 2.1 OS on top. Of course, this being a Vivo flagship, you get a powerful audio Hi-Fi chip inside. Its the CS4398 + AX97220 op amp, which supports Hi-Fi sound.
