Vivo is considered as one of the most celebrated mobile phone brands in Malaysia. The good thing about this mobile phone is that it offers a fresh and a unique choice for people who would want to experience something new when it comes to their mobile devices.
Fans of the mobile brand are already looking forward to the release of its latest flagship phone, the Vivo Xplay 5S. One of the rumoured features of this flagship phone is the fingerprint scanner that is embedded underneath the display of the phone itself. In most smartphones, the fingerprint scanner feature is usually found at the home button of the phone or on the back of the mobile device. This is the only time that the fingerprint scanner will be incorporated in the display screen of the phone itself. An external scanner like this can make the phone slimmer and stylish.
It still remains unclear on who shall provide Vivo in Malaysia with the technology for such feature. Both CrucialTech and Qualcomm possess the capabilities to do such after unveiling similar technologies a few years back. As for Qualcomm, they have already achieved an ultrasonic technology that allows fingerprints to be captured and scanned in the display screen of the mobile device.
If this would push through, the latest mobile phone products of Vivo in Malaysia with the onscreen fingerprint scanner will be the very first in history. The earlier released mobile flagship phone of the brand, the Vivo Xplay 3S, features QHD Display. This could possibly be the same feature for the Vivo Xplay 5S. It will have a 6-inch screen and run with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 clocked at 2.5GHz with 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage. It will have a rear camera of 13-megapixel and front camera of 8-megapixel. No word on when the phone will be released has been announced but a lot of Vivo fans are already looking forward for it.
Another unique thing about the phone is that will feature a 2.5D curved glass that has 2560×1440, 590ppi resolution. It will also offer expandable storage of up to 128GB. As for the battery life, it will come with a 3,500 mAh battery and has a pre-installed Android 4.4.4 Kitkat together with Vivo’s Funtouch 2.0 UI on top of the Google’s operating system. It will be 5.68mm thick, an interesting feature for a mobile phone with a 3,500mAh battery.
More specification and feature leaks are expected to surface for the Vivo XPlay 5S as Vivo continues to keep its release confidential to the public.
