Vivo Launches 5.7-Inch Xplay, Competition To Samsung Galaxy Note 2?
Chinese handset maker Vivo is less known in the international smartphone space but recently the company launched the 5.7-inch Xplay, which may give some competition to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 in China.
The Vivo Xplay will sport a 5.7-inch 1080p display. A quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor clocked at 1.7GHz along with 2GB of RAM will power the handset. The chipset found in the Vivo Xplay is the same found in the recently launched HTC One. The Vivo Xplay will be capable of delivering full HD resolution.
The Vivo Xplay is equipped with a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with an F/2.2 aperture lens and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. The handset has 16/32GB of internal storage and will be available in black and white options. The smartphone comes running on the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system.
The handset has a 3400mAh battery and measures 153.8 x 79.68 x 7.99 mm and weighs 187 grams.
Initially, the company plans to release the 16GB version of the handset in mid- to late May. Unlike other Chinese smartphones, the Vivo Xplay will have a premium price tag of 2998 Yuan, which is equivalent to around $489. The company has not yet confirmed the release date or pricing for the 32GB model. The Vivo Xplay will be released only in China but the handset may make its way to other parts of the world via various online retailers.
Currently, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is the unquestionable king of the phablet industry. The Vivo Xplay packs in impressive features, but if compared to the Galaxy Note 2, the handset still lags behind.
The Vivo Xplay may attract smartphone buyers in China but it is anybody's guess if the handset can compete with the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 found globally.
