Vivo Xplay 3S 515ppi phone shot in the wild, release date nearing

Vivo's upcoming Xplay 3S will probably be the first phone with 2560x1440 pixels display, and the company put that panel under the microscope recently to showcase just how much smoother everything looks even compared to the Full HD phone displays of today.

Now we have a picture of the eventual Vivo Xplay 3S chassis snapped in the wild, which shows a metallic looking frame, and a fairly large body dressed up in white. The source claims the back is Gorilla Glass 3, hinting at a unibody design, and sealed large 3400 mAh battery to power the resolute display. The rest of the specs are said to be a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800, 13 MP rear and 5 MP front-facing camera.

As for release date - Vivo hasn't shared anything officially, but there are wild guesses, ranging from this week to next month. In any case the Xplay 3S launch is not far away, and it might as well become the first handset to break the 500ppi barrier.

Wow that screen is overkill; impressive, but overkill. My TV doesn't even have that resolution. What matters more is how they've calibrated the display. A 500 PPI phone with washed-out colours is futile.

Agreed, now they should focus on brightness/outdoor visibility, accuracy and power efficiency.

Why don't these companies fight for long battery life rather than stupid pixel wars :( 720p is enough for anything under 5 inch and 1080p enough for everything under 7-8 inches.

Am all for the bigger battery, higher resolution, and anything else that make good better. I don't believe in what you people call over kill. Break them limits!!!

Sounds awesome! But is there really a need for 515ppi phone displays? I own a S4 and the PPI is 441 and I can't c a pixel at all! I Wish they would focus more on batteries and camera's ( low light )

We really don't need this kind of phone coz 515 is so overkill and power hungry, 720p for 5 inch below and 1080p for 5.0 above
