Vivo announced the Xplay 3S today, the first smartphone with a massive 6-inch 2K 490ppi resolution display and some serious specs under the hood.
The Vivo Xplay 3s is a followup to the original Xplay—we’re not sure what happened to the Xplay 2—and comes equipped with a 2560 x 1440-pixel display, a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 32GB of onboard storage, 3GB of RAM, a 3,200mAh battery, a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter. It also boasts a built-in fingerprint scanner positioned near the rear camera and dual-speaker grills at the top and bottom of the back panel. With those sort of specs, it’s going to be a direct competitor to the Oppo Find 7, which also will have a 2K display.
The Xplay 3S runs Android 4.3 out of the box, though the UI is dominated by Vivo’s Funtouch system. The company’s custom Android ROM offers a few helpful features, including a clever video-sharing augmented reality app, specialized gesture controls, mood-based playlists, and voice-controlled video editing.
Vivo plans to launch the Xplay 3S in China first, where the device will open up for pre-order in the near future through online retailer Tmall starting at ¥3,498 (roughly $580). The Chinese smartphone-maker says it also has plans for the global market starting in 2014, though there’s no word whether those plans include the U.S.
