vivo-xplay-5

While Vivo might not be a well-known brand in Europe and United States, in Asia, particularly its home country of China, the brand enjoys plenty of recognition. A household brand or not, Vivo can be commended for often being the first or one of the firsts to embrace new trends, such as offering the first QHD handset, and now the upcoming Vivo Xplay 5 has been announced on Vivo’s website as the world’s first handset with a staggering 6GB RAM.

Of course all that RAM will matter little if it doesn’t have a killer chipset to go with it, but thankfully, Vivo has its bases covered there as well, with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 under the hood. Other than a Snapdragon 820 processor with 6GB RAM, the only other confirmed spec is a QHD display. The rest of the specs, pricing, and release details will likely come on March 1st, when Vivo is slated to fully unveil the Vivo Xplay 5. As for the looks? That remains a mystery as well, as Vivo has yet to officially showcase the phone’s design.

While the Samsung Galaxy S7/Edge and LG G5 are the kings of MWC, it’s clear that plenty of competition is heading down the pipe, though it’s very likely the Vivo Xplay 5 will never been seen officially outside of Asia. What do you think, impressed to see someone breaking the 4GB RAM barrier? Let us know your thoughts down in the comments.
