Vivo X5Pro

After the X5 Max, Vivo has now made the X5Pro smartphone official in China, and it comes with a price tag of $440. It has been into leaks and several rumors for a while now, and the Chinese smartphone manufacturer finally unveils this device, with some specs being similar to the one in X5 Max.

The Vivo X5Pro comes with a 5.2-inch 1080p display, with the Super AMOLED technology, and a 2.5D curved Gorilla glass protection. On the exterior, the side frame of the phone is made of metal, and the speaker grill is located on the bottom, on either side of the MicroUSB port.

Internally, the device is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor (octa-core, 1.7 GHz) along with 2GB of RAM, and there is 16GB internal storage, with a MicroSD card slot for storage expansion. The device has a 13-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, and PDAF-autofocus, along with the capability of recording 4K videos. On the front, there is a 8-megapixel camera with image interpolation technology, using which, images of up to 32MP resolution can be captured. It also is mentioned that the front-facing camera has an eye-recognition technology for the security of phone’s data.

While there is Android Lollipop OS running in the X5Pro, the Funtouch OS 2.1 interface is layered over it. There is a 2300 mAh battery packed in, and it is user-replaceable. On the connectivity side, the X5Pro supports 4G LTE connectivity, and the other standard options such as Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS.

Not many details about the availability are given for now, but the price set for this is $440. It isn’t anywhere close to the X5 Max in slimness, though, it comes with the dimensions of 147.90 x 73.45 x 6.44mm, and it has two SIM card slots. Stay tuned to know about the availability in other markets.
