Samsung Galaxy S9 might be on everybody’s minds now that Mobile World Congress is approaching, but other brands are equally rising to consumers’ expectations. Vivo, one of the top brands on the Chinese market, is set to release a device so great (specs-wise) that you’ll be completely taken by surprise #mobilemagic
The company became famous after cracking the “under-display fingerprint sensor dilemma”. Where Samsung and Apple failed, Vivo did just fine, revealing the technology recently . It’s not the first time Vivo takes the lead in the industry; their Xplay 5 was the first handset to sport 6GB of RAM and it seems that now, Vivo is showing its competitive streak again with a not 8, but 10GB of RAM smartphone!
Xplay 7 is rumored to come with the insane amount of memory, couple with two huge 256GB and 512GB onboard storage options. Although these will be the selling points of the device, if rumors come true, Xplay 7 might debut other attractive flagship features too.
It is said that the phone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip, will take pictures and video with a dual-lens rear camera while supporting 4x optical zoom and have a facial recognition software aboard. “Face Recognition 2.0” has been mentioned here and there and we’re guessing the biometric technology will be used to unlock the device.
Equally impressive is the display and design of the phone. Vivo’s newest flagship will have a 4K display and an edge-to-edge design which will sport a 92.9% screen-to-body ratio. That’s much more than the Galaxy S8 (83.6%), which means that the handset will also feature the under-display fingerprint scanner, eliminating the need for a home button.
We’ll know for sure, though, next week!
