In June, Vivo had showcased its under-display fingerprint scanner technology during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) Shanghai 2017. It seems that the rumored Vivo Xplay7 could be the smartphone that will be arriving with the advanced biometric recognition feature. A Weibo user has shared leaked snapshots of a slideshow along with some press renders of the alleged Vivo Xplay7. Before reading ahead, we would like to let our readers know that the legitimacy of the leaked images are not confirmed.
The above images show that the Vivo Xplay7 would be coming in color choices like Black, Gold and Rose Gold (or Pink). The frontside of the phone features the new full screen design, but its back panel looks a bit like the Xplay6. These renders also reveal that it features a 3.5mm audio jack, a USB-C port and a pair of external speakers.
What’s fascinating about the smartphone is that features a true bezel-less design and one of the leaked snapshot suggests that the display will deliver an astounding screen-to-body ratio of 100 percent. However, the Xplay7 has two cutouts at the upper portion of the display. These cutouts may either house dual selfie cameras or a selfie camera and a sensor.
The leaked images also claim that the Vivo Xplay7 features optical fingerprint scanner under its display. Few months ago, well-known analyst Pan Jiutang had claimed Vivo will become the first smartphone company to launch a phone with under-display fingerprint scanner. The rear side of the Xplay7 features a dual camera system. Leaked information suggests that it may feature a pair of customized Sony IMX401 sensors that will carry support for 4x optical zoom.
It is expected to deliver monstrous performance as it is rumored to feature the next-generation Snapdragon 845 chipset coupled with 8 GB of RAM. It is speculated to be available in storage choices like 128 GB and 256 GB. Even though several smartphone OEMs will be launching Snapdragon 845 driven smartphones in 2018, the Xplay7 could be the first SD845 driven phone to feature under-display fingerprint scanner. Since the smartphone is speculated to feature Snapdragon 835’s successor chipset, it may get introduced in the first quarter of 2018.
