Vivo’s upcoming X5 Max smartphone stole the spotlight from Oppo soon after it announced that its R5 handset would be the slimmest in the market. The former device was teased with a design that’s mere millimeters thinner than the latter, but is yet to be officially launched.
Even so, the Vivo X5 Max has managed to accomplish more than what Oppo did, apart from offering extra slimness. The device in question has been confirmed to carry a standard 3.5mm audio jack which has been omitted from the R5 handset. It’s still not known how the OEM managed to squeeze the component into the design, but one thing you can be sure of is that there won’t be any excessive bulge around it.
This is also evident in the teaser image above. The phone will fall in the phablet category with a 5.5-inch 1080p display and Vivo hasn’t held back in the hardware department. It has thrown in a 1.7GHz octa core processor which could be a 64-bit chipset from MediaTek or the one based on the new Cortex A17 design.
Additionally, the handset will offer Android 4.4.4 KitKat and 2GB of RAM. For storage, there’s 16GB of memory, but no word on whether microSD expansion will be supported. Lastly, 4G LTE connectivity and dual cameras will also be onboard.
