New Vivo Xshot seems to feature an unusual 7.68MP front-facing camera
China-based BBK made quite a splash at the end of last year, when it announced the Vivo Xplay 3S - the world’s first smartphone to feature a Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display. Now, not long after it started selling the Xplay 3S, the company is getting ready to introduce another high-end handset.

Called Vivo Xshot, the upcoming smartphone seems to be a camera-centric product. Apparently, it will come with an unusual 7.68MP front-facing camera (selfies - selfies everywhere!), and a 13MP rear camera. Other features reportedly include a 1080p display of unknown size, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal memory. The handset seems to run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean at the moment.

We don't know when the Vivo Xshot will be officially announced, and neither if it's going to be released outside of China. But we’ll keep an eye on this, and report back when new details are available.

Blame your manufacture. Android is an open source operating system. Your manufacture can pretty much do whatever it sees fit. Like your User Interface for instance, which is most likely the reason your phone is still on 4.1. User Interfaces tend to slow the updates. You can do a few things. Learn how to flash a custom rom. I have and that's what I love about Android. Or, get a Nexus/Google Play Edition. You want updates when they come out get a Nexus/Google Play Edition. If you like those User Interfaces that Samsung, LG, and others put out, you're just going to have to wait for your manufacture to update your User Interface. When and if that even happenes is a whole other thing.

4.1, 4.2, 4.3, 4.4 Whatever they call it, for an above average user it all feels the same. There hardly is a noticeable difference between them. You need to update from 4.1 to 4.4 only if you are that hardcore spec monster of a guy. You can install and use almost all the stuff in 4.4 onto a 4.1 phone.

So damn wrong, for an "above average" user, the difference is huge, the design alone is improved upon vastly in KitKat.
