Live photos of Vivo Xplay 5 appear 24 hours before unveiling
The Vivo Xplay 5 is less than 24 hours away from setting a new record for a smartphone. As you've read right here, the phone will sport 6GB of RAM, which should make it a multi-tasker's dream. The handset is expected to feature a 5.5-inch screen with a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution. With the Snapdragon 820 chipset under the hood, a recently posted video showed the Vivo Xplay 5 outperforming the Apple iPhone 6s.

While the Xplay 5 might end up sold only in China, in the states it is still looked at as a curiosity because of the 6GB of RAM packed inside. In September, Samsung said that its new RAM chips will lead to 6GB RAM solutions for smartphones. Thus, we could see flagship models sold in the U.S. sporting 6GB of RAM in the not too distant future. It most likely won't take place until the next-generation smartphone models are released in 2017 or 2018. Meanwhile, Vivo's phone has 6GB of RAM right now.

Live photos of the device have leaked, not surprising with the phone scheduled to be unwrapped tomorrow. Check out the gallery of photos by clicking on the slideshow below.


Thanks for the tip!

Don't worry I already know what to expect after seeing the Galaxy Edge. My only curiosity is how much the system RAM consumption will be, I am guessing around 3.5-4.5GB.

I think Android have limit on number of apps in memory.. if Android Remove that limit then these 6 or in 8GB RAM will be very useful. actually I think If companies find out a way to keep apps always in memory then 8GB also make sense. I hope that don't affect battery. maybe battery is reason they only keep 8-10 max Apps in memory.. I've always seen when 7-10 apps in memory and browser often reload pages when visiting in loop.

Finally, unimaginative lower-class Asians ripping off higher-class Asians' designs instead of stealing from Westerners. Let the suing begin, I will enjoy seeing these Asians fight to the death.

The beacon of western smartphone and computer design, Apple, sued an Asian company for implementing slide to unlock.

Might as well sue them for including something westerners truly consider innovative, like a battery.

Believe Samsung are now rumoured to be actively selling other OEMs their edge panels. Can't remember it on the top of my had but I believe there's be a Xiaomi, ZTE, and Huawei edge variant as well.

Probably a better naming there.

So for the most part it's an iPhone 6/6S rear with a slightly different flash sensor, and an S6/S7 Edge on the front and sides? Brownie points for creativity!

Bring this phone already. Last time they released an XPlay series phone they absolutely killed it. Hence why people are super excited to see the 5 finally make it's way to us the consumer. Try a Vivo phone, you'll be very impressed.
