World’s First 2K Smartphone, Vivo Xplay 3S, Goes Official

Vivo Xperia 3SMajor players in the mobile industry are battling it out relentlessly to gain more market share, but one less-known device manufacturer from China has pushed the envelope and sets a new standard. After so much teasing and speculation, the first ever 2K QHD (not qHD) smartphone has been announced. Vivo has officially unveiled its next flagship, the Xplay 3S with a 6-inch (2560 x 1440) display that rakes in an impressive 490ppi of pixel density.

It is powered by an enhanced variant of Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, the MSM8974AB SoC. Its four powerful Krait 400 cores could reach 2.3GHz and the Adreno 330 GPU should ensure great 3D performance on the crazy 2K display.

The Xplay 3S is also lavishly equipped with 3GB of RM and fast dual-mode 4G LTE connectivity. The 32GB of internal storage could accommodate a lot of apps and a reasonable quantity of content. Audiophiles would be glad to know that the huge phablet comes with the Texas Instruments OPA2604 amplifier and ESS Technology ES9018 DAC. The wide-angle 5Mp shooter is reasonable for decent video chats and the 13Mp camera on the back could smooth do 1080p video recording. The 3200mAh battery should be adequate for one day of moderate use.
