Vivo X5 Pro specifications leak out, to be unveiled May 13th
According to the company’s official Weibo account, Vivo is slated to release its next smartphone, the X5 Pro, on Wednesday, May 13th. Seeing as how Vivo grabbed a ton of headlines in the past few months for producing one of the thinnest smartphones in the world, there’s no doubt that the company’s next handset will push the envelope in one way or another. And thanks to a new leak, we don’t have to wait until the 13th to see what this smartphone will bring to the table.
The X5 Pro has been spotted in a listing from Chinese wireless regulator TENAA, revealing a good amount of the device’s specs. According to the listing, the handset will have a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED 1080p display, a 13MP rear-facing camera with an f/2.0 aperture, a 5MP front-facing camera with an f/2.4 aperture, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of on-board storage. It will also have a 64-bit 1.7GHz octa-core processor, though the listing didn’t reveal what type, specifically. Previous rumors suggest that the device could come with a Snapdragon 615 CPU.
In addition, the device will run Vivo’s Funtouch OS 2.1 software overlay atop Android 5.0 Lollipop. While these are all solid specifications, the most impressive feature on this handset, by far, is the huge 4150mAh battery.
Other rumors have proposed that the X5 Pro will come with a 2.5D glass screen as well as some sort of eye recognition technology. There are no details as to what type of eye tracking tech will be included, so it looks like we’ll have to wait until the 13th to find out for sure.
