Vivo Xplay 5.7-inch HD resolution smartphone rocks Snapdragon 600 processor

Posted by Shane McGlaun

A new smartphone has surfaced from a Chinese company known as Vivo that is equipped with a whopping 5.7-inch full HD resolution screen and speedy processor.

The processor powering the device is a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, while the screen weighs in at a resolution of 1920 x 1080.

That makes the specifications for the device better (at least on paper) than the latest Galaxy Note smartphone. The smartphone also boasts an integrated audio amplifier, 32 GB of  storage and  a 13-megapixel rear camera.

A front camera with a five-megapixel resolution is also include, which is somewhat more resolution the we typically see for front facing cameras on smartphones. Power for the device comes from a 3400 mAh battery, making the phone 8 mm thick.

The operating system loaded on the phone is Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) with a few custom tweaks such as the Vivo Free Touch tool, which is designed to make it easier to operate the smartphone with one hand.

The Chinese smartphone currently supports GSM and WCDMA 2100 networks, eliminating any potential to use it on 3G networks within the US. However, it will work on networks in Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia among others. Pricing and availability are unknown at this time, and we can be sure that a some variant of the phone (or one similiar) will likely tip up in the States at some point.
