There’s yet another 1080p quad core Android phone out there, called the Vivo Xplay and sporting a 5.7 inch display. The product just debuted in Beijing and packs an extra audio chip compared to the predecessor models, X1 and X1S.
Under the hood, this model packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad core 1.7 GHz CPU, 2 GB of RAM and Adreno 320 graphics. The screen is a 500 nits LTPS unit and other specs include 16 GB of storage (or 32 GB if you want), a 3400 mAh battery and NFC. At the back we can find a Sony 13 megapixel sensor and at the front there’s an impressive 5 megapixel shooter.
The body is also pretty thin on this model, at 7.99 mm and the bezel is just 2.3 mm thick, so pretty impressive. The Xplay also stands out on the software side, with an interesting one hand mode called Free Touch. You can shake the handset sideways twice to get a small window that mirrors the current screen in your preferred lower corner. We also get touchless gestures like waving across the front of the handset to flip a page, hovering the hand over the icon to launch an app and hovering over the phone to unlock it. That explains the 5 MP camera now..
