BBK has just announced the Vivo XShot earlier today in China. The device first appeared in a leak some weeks ago as the first phone to breach the 40,000 mark on AnTuTu. This is a flagship level handset with all the features you would come to expect from a 2014 smartphone. The highlight here, as with any Chinese smartphone, is the pricing. But before we dive into those details, here’s a rundown of the hardware.
The Vivo XShot comes with a 5.2 inch 1080p display, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 chipset with a Snapdragon 800 variant available as well. The handset also has a 13-megapixel f/1.8 aperture Sony sensor with OIS technology which is capable of shooting 4K videos. Accompanying the camera is a dual-tone LED flash which will help in low light conditions. Android 4.4.2 KitKat is running by default here, so BBK has ensured that customers are getting the best from their new flagship.
The Snapdragon 801 model has been priced for a local equivalent of $560 while the Snapdragon 800 variant of the handset costs $480. It’s not quite the cheapest smartphone out there, but considering that it packs the latest hardware, we think the pricing is justified. It is to be seen if the smartphone will venture its way out of China eventually.
