Vivo Xplay 5 teaser
The Chinese company who offered the first QHD handset will apparently become the first one to launch one with 6 GB of memory as soon as next week.

Vivo is not a big name in the United States or Europe yet, but enjoys a lot of attention in Asia, especially in its home market - China. Some time ago, the company was the first (or one of the first ones) to offer a QHD display on a handset, and now there is only one week left until Vivo will apparently break another barrier by offering the first smartphone/phablet with more than 4 GB of memory.

According to an official teaser image, the upcoming Vivo Xplay 5 will be powered by the high-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC and will use no less than 6 GB of memory. Unfortunately, the only other spec confirmed at this time is the screen resolution - QHD, and nothing more. Given this fact, it is almost certain that Xplay 5's display has at least 5.5-5.7 inches in size, but that remains to be seen. Other specs rumored so far include a 16 MP main camera and a generous 4300 mAh battery.

Vivo Xplay 5 is expected to debut next week, on March 1st. While its specs will probably beat most flagships that have just been announced in Barcelona, it is also very likely that this handset will not be officially available outside Asia.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
