Today we’re getting additional details about a rather impressive sounding smartphone. This thing truly can compete with – and beat – nearly everything available today in terms of raw specs, design, and features. Vivo isn’t a name we hear often, but their new Android 4.2 Jelly Bean 1080p powerhouse smartphone the Vivo Xplay is worthy of our attention.
All the details about this impressive phone were unveiled today, and lets just say I’d really like to own one. Vivo is competing with and beating the folks from Samsung, LG, and more with this thing, sadly it will never come to the U.S. if the past gives us any indication. Read on for all the details about this neat new smartphone.
So why does it sound so impressive. Here’s the spec sheet: It comes with a 5.7-inch 1920 x 1080p full HD display, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM (like the GS 4 and HTC One) 32GB of internal storage, micro-SD slot, 13 megapixel rear camera and even a huge 5 megapixel front shooter, as well as a massive 3,400 mAh battery. And that isn’t all. You’ll enjoy premium sound with an additional Texas Instrument OPA2604 amplifier chip to boost audio across the board as well.
Interestingly enough they manage all of this into a device only 8mm thin, so slightly thinner than a Galaxy Nexus, or even the Nexus 4. Nice right? FLAC audio playback is supported (and you’ll need all the storage you can get for that) it has NFC, and it features some software options called Vivo Free Touch. This allows you to shake or interact with the phone without touching it. Which is nice when your fingers can’t stretch across that 5.7-inch screen.

This stunning and impressive sounding device will be launching soon in parts of Asia, and we’d really like to get our hands on it. It’s like a Galaxy Note II, only slightly better in every way possible. What do you guys think?
