A photo of the upcoming Vivo Xplay 3S has been leaked, showing off its white metallic unibody design, rear speakers, slim profile, and Gorilla Glass protection on both sides of the device. The leak was supplied by a PR agent from China who claims that he has gotten hold of the device.
The Vivo Xplay 3S has been getting a lot of attention lately in the tech community, for being the first phone with a 2K display resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, and a pixel density of 515 ppi.
Recently, the smartphone’s 515 ppi display was magnified and juxtaposed with the displays of the HTC One and the iPhone. The HTC One’s display, which has only 468 ppi, and the iPhone, which has 326 ppi, showed significantly less detail in the magnified images.
The device, however, has become the subject of some criticism because of its very high pixel density. According to the popular argument, displays today have reached a point where the human eye can no longer tell the difference even if manufacturers keep adding more pixels per inch. Vivo, however, does not seem to believe this contention, and appears happy to be tagged as the maker of the 515 ppi smartphone.
Meanwhile, various leaks have provided clues to the other specifications and features of the Xplay 3S. These include a 5.7-inch display Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, the new Funtouch ROM, NFC, 4G LTE connectivity support, ultra-thin bezels, and a 3,000mAh battery.
Earlier rumors suggested that the Xplay 3S camera has the capability to be rotated to face the front or the back, but the newer image does not seem to support this claim. Other information that has leaked regarding the camera include a Niko lens, Nikkion EXPEED image processing chip, and f/2.0 aperture.
The same device also allegedly got a score of 36,258 on AnTuTu, beating the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Samsung Galaxy S4, and many other flagship offerings from other manufacturers.
The Vivo Xplay 3S could be unveiled sometime between the end of November up to early December, according to rumors.
