Vivo X5Pro certified by TENAA; no glowing logo but other features are apparently on board

Vivo X5Pro certified by TENAA; no glowing logo but other features are apparently on board
The Vivo X5Pro has plenty of smartphone fans excited for more reasons than just a glowing logo. Last week, we showed you a teaser from Vivo that hinted at a retina scanner for the handset. And the teaser also revealed that this scanner would be extremely secure, more so than a fingerprint scanner.

On Monday, the Vivo X5Pro was certified by TENAA, the Chinese equivalent to the FCC, and we have to tell you that the glowing logo was not on the phone that visited the agency. On the other hand, features teased by Vivo itself such as the retina scanner, a Type-C USB Port and the front-facing camera that produces 32MP selfies all are apparently on board. The 32MP pictures are created by stitching together images taken within a fraction of a second of each other. The Type-C USB Port allows users to insert their USB cable either side up.

The rear camera on the handset uses Phase Detection Auto Focus which reportedly allows the camera to focus faster than the rear snapper on the Apple iPhone 6. The handset will supposedly be driven by the 64-bit Snapdragon 615 chipset and will employ double sided 2.5D glass. It appears that Vivo will be offering this unit only in white.

While we don't know when the X5Pro will be unveiled, the fact that it is now TENAA certified means that we are getting closer to that event.
