Not long ago, Chinese mobile phone maker Vivo announced its first smartphone, none other than the Vivo Xplay 3S, which has been put up for sale today, only to sell out in a matter of seconds.
Apparently, Vivo managed to deplete the entire first batch in the first second, though only 1,000 devices have been put up for sale in the beginning, as GizChina notes.
One thing that is certain, however, is that the phone is indeed impressive, and that it does not come too much as a surprise that users want to grab it as fast as possible.
We got the chance to play with the smartphone at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this week, where we found it displayed at Qualcomm’s booth, and we must say that we indeed liked it.
The handset is powered by a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor (Krait 400) paired with Adreno 330 GPU and 3GB of RAM.
Thus, the device is capable of providing users with great performance capabilities. In fact, we found it to be very snappy when playing with it at the MWC, although the interface was in Chinese, and we didn’t get to access too many of its features.
The main selling point of this smartphone, however, is not its processor, but rather its 6-inch screen, given that it can deliver that impressive 2K resolution (that would be 2560 x 1440 pixels, or Quad HD), with a pixel density of 490ppi.
The mobile phone also packs Qualcomm’s Gobi 4G LTE Advanced modem, which was designed to offer great data transfer capabilities to its users.
But there’s more to it, as the handset also comes with a 13-megapixel camera with f/1.8 aperture on the back, as well as with a 5MP front camera. It should provide users with a great video calling experience, given the large front sensor.
Other hardware specs of the new mobile phone include 32GB of internal memory, a 3200mAh battery, and the Funtouch OS (which is, in fact, based on Android).
However, the device does not impress only through its specifications. The outer design looks highly appealing as well, and the fact that it weighs only 172 grams will make you want one for sure.
After all, this is a 6-inch smartphone, which seems much lighter than 5-inch or smaller devices, further enhancing the impression of ease of use and speed. It’s no wonder that Vivo sold the first batch of the device so fast, though it will certainly replenish stock in the not too distant future.
