It is less than a week ago when invites for the Xplay 3S event were sent out in China, and here we are with word that the Vivo Xplay 3S smartphone is officially unveiled to the masses. I suppose something that surprised many people would be the larger than expected display that stands at 6” in size, where it will also sport QHD resolution – referred to as 2K resolution at times, where it boasts of a whopping 2,560 x 1,440 pixels. Hmmm, I clearly recall reading somewhere that the Oppo Find 7 intends to be the first 2K display smartphone in the world – guess they might have been beaten to the punch by Vivo this time around.
At that resolution, we are looking (literally!) at a pixel density of 490ppi, which is a whole lot higher compared to the 4.7″ 1080p display that is found on the flagship HTC One smartphone, not to mention after taking into consideration the diagonal size difference. Other hardware specifications of the Vivo Xplay 3S include a Snapdragon 800 chipset, a quad-core Krait 400 2.3GHz processor, an Adreno 330 GPU, 3GB RAM, TD-LTE and FDD-LTE connectivity, a 13-megapixel shooter, a fingerprint scanner, and a 5-megapixel camera in front. No idea on how much it will cost, though.
