Vivo is Chinese smartphone brand which apparently isn't the most sought after in the industry. However, the company does deserve some special mention considering the fact that they were the first to incorporate a QHD display in a smartphone.
Yes, the smartphone in reference is the Vivo XPlay 3S. Incidentally three years have passed since its launch and many fans out there are eagerly waiting for an updated version called the XPlay 5S.
After initial round of speculations hinting at a launch towards the end of 2015, nothing such took place. However, the alleged smartphone was spotted clearing the GeekBench today, thereby revealing much of its specs. According to the benchmark listing the Vivo XPlay 5S touting a model no PD1516A comes with a 5.5 inch QHD (2560x1440p) display and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC.
For those unaware the LeTv Le Max Pro is first smartphone to don the latest SoC from Qualcomm. Besides that, the Vivo XPlay 5S comes with a 4GB RAM, 32GB memory, 16MP rear and 8MP front facing camera.
This is quite a revelation, as previous reports had indicated that the XPlay 5S will come with a 21MP and 8MP front and rear combo. In yet another happening reputed Chinese analyst Jan Jiutang claims that the latest flagship from Vivo will come with 6GB RAM. Thus the only way to support his claim is to assume Vivo to launch two variants of the XPlay 5S - the base variant with 4GB RAM and top end on with 6GB RAM.
The alleged Vivo XPlay 5S had also appeared in a series of leaked images a few months back revealing a metal body and the presence of a fingerprint sensor at the back of the device.
