BBK’s upcoming smartphone called the Vivo Xplay 3S is one of the most highly anticipated devices to be released this year. Expected to be launched this coming December 12, it is going to be the world’s first QHD smartphone having a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440. Big name Android brands such as Samsung will only start releasing 2K displays starting next year.
A recently leaked image of the device shows it in five different colors. The colors are blue, champagne gold, yellow, pink, and white. This is a great move by the company since they will be able to target a larger portion of the market from consumers who are looking for high end devices to those who value the aesthetics.
Some of the specifications of the Vivo Xplay 3S include
- Snapdragon 800 MSM8974AB processor
- 5.5 inches display 2560×1440
- 3GB of RAM
- f/1.8 display
- FDD / TDD-LTE support
- Hi-Fi Hi-Res Audio support
- USB 3.0 support
As the launch date of this device gets near we are getting more information surrounding it although not official.
Aside from its display one other impressive feature of this device is its camera that has a f/1.8 aperture. This allows it to take excellent shots even in low lighting conditions.
Its pricing has not been revealed but if we were to make a guesstimate is should be in the range of $500.
As far as availability goes it’s going to be available in the Chinese market since it is designed to support the TD-LTE and the more common FD-LTE network. An international release might not be coming anytime soon but we’re hoping that the company will announce an international version of this device.
Another device with an even higher resolution of 2560×1536 is also set to be released soon. This is the Meizu MX4G which sports a 5.5 inch display.
The move of manufacturers to release devices with impressive displays is gaining momentum with next year (2014) expected to be exciting as popular Android brands will come out with their 2K display smartphones.
