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.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
