At the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Vizio made official two new smartphones with HD displays, one featuring a 4.7-inch screen, and the other packing a 5-inch panel.

Both the high-end 5-inch 1080p device and the 4.7-inch 720p smartphone come with dual-SIM capabilities, and both are running under stock Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

Furthermore, Vizio packed them with a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm chip with 2GB of RAM and with a 1.2GHz dual-core MediaTek CPU with 1GB of RAM, respectively.

Apparently, these handsets can offer support for AT&T’s 3G network in the United States, but the company has decided to sell them in China, since the US market is carrier-dominated.

According to The Verge, Vizio CTO Matt McRae said that the company is aiming at becoming successful enough in China to be able to return to the US market to start negotiating with carriers.
