Vivo X5 Max Platinum Edition features a 4150mAh battery, MediaTek chipset
Vivo made the Platinum Edition of the X5 Max official today, and besides the beefier battery, the manufacturer has swapped out the Snapdragon 615 chipset for the 64-bit MediaTek MT 6752 SoC. The new chip contains an octa-core 1.7GHz CPU and the Mali-T760 GPU. The remaining specs track the original model. That means the Vivo X5 Max Platinum Edition is equipped with a 5.5-inch 1080 x 1920 Super AMOLED screen. 2GB of RAM is aboard along with 16GB of native storage. Those requiring additional memory can access the 128GB microSD slot that comes with the handset. The 13MP rear-facing camera has an aperture of f/2.0, and the front-facing 5MP snapper is ready to shoot selfies.
The phone supports 4G LTE, USB and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, and features dual SIM (Nano SIM and Micro SIM) capabilities. Pricing and availability have yet to be announced. The phone will be offered in Gold and White.
Vivo is now giving you a choice. Would you rather have the slimmest handset in your pocket unable to work because of a dead battery, or a slightly thicker device in your hand with enough juice to run for a full day?
