515ppi phone Vivo Xplay 3S coming with a fingerprint scanner as well?

Chinese BBK, the company behind both Vivo and Oppo, has been on a row lately, and so far it would appear that it won't be disappointing with its upcoming Vivo Xplay 3S flagship, either. Seen as the main contender to break the 500ppi barrier, the 5.7-inch Xplay 3S is said to sport one of those super pixel-dense 1440x2560 screens from LG Display or Japan Display.

But it would seem that the increasingly ambitious BBK isn't quite content with just scoring a first on the display front. It wants in on the fingerprint sensor bandwagon, or so would the latest render leak (courtesy of Vivo itself) suggest. As you can see from the photo at the top, the company has made it a tad difficult to spot the sensor right away, so you may have to zoom into our gallery. Rest assured – it is there, right below the camera unit. Weirdly enough, that last one is placed differently than a recent leak showed.

Anyway, the fingerprint sensor likely is a swipe-style one, much alike the one on the HTC One max, and much unlike the one on the iPhone 5s. Of course, there's also a chance that we're looking at yet another one of those rear panel touch areas, or even an LG G2-style power button, though it's probably safe to conclude that the fingerprint scanner epidemic has kicked up a gear or two.

Rumors to this date put the internals of the Vivo Xplay 3S as equally high-end -- a Snapdragon 800 chipset, 3GB of RAM, 5/13MP front/rear cameras and a hearty 3000 mAh cell.
