Vivo's future powerhouse – the Xplay 5S – poses for the camera
Chinese smartphone vendor Vivo received some attention recently, when it was revealed that it's about to unleash the next smartphone to hold the "thinnest phone in the world" award – the Vivo X5 Max - with a body thats only 0.187" (4.75 mm) thick. The manufacturer is used to getting attention, though – last year, it was Vivo who launched the world's first smartphone with QHD (1440 x 2560) resolution – the Xplay 3S.

Now, it seems like it has another phone in the works – what is expected to be a successor to the QHD pinoeer, an Xplay 5S has been leaked, together with some of the phone's specs.

From the looks of it, the new flagship will not be establishing any new trends, like its predecessor did, rather – it will follow the old ones really, really well. What we mean is that it looks like it's going to be a hardware monster – a gargantuan-sized 6-inch display with QHD resolution (490 PPI), a 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 805, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage (expandable to 128 GB), 13 MP main camera with f/1.8 aperture, OIS, and dual-tone flash, while the frontal snapper will be an impressive, wide-angle 8 MP cam. The battery to power the hardware will have a 3,500 mAh capacity and the phone will offer some sort of Hi-Fi sound tech, achieved with two audio-dedicated chips – ES9018 and OPS2604 – the same can be found in the Xplay 3S. The phone will run on Android 4.4.4 KitKat with Vivo's proprietary Funtouch 2.0 skin on top.

Based on previous leaks, the dimensions are expected to be 6.22 x 3.18 x 0.22 inches (158 x 81 x 5.68mm), which, with specs like this, puts it in what is probably the bracket for thinnest phones in the high performance category. Whether Vivo will be releasing it to markets outside of China, however, is unknown.

This is way uglier than the XPlay 3s, which was utterly beautiful. And the specs are similar too.

Copy cats. Blah blah. This phone will most definitely raise the bar like the xplay 3s did when that one launched 2013. The specs and features on that phone are still better than what Samsung and lg have been pumping out 10 months later. This phone maker has the Potential to kill these other copycat Korean companies of the phone grid.
