Announcing the Vivo Xplay 3S

Yesterday, Vivo announced their Xplay 3S Android smartphone! Vivo’s new Android phone is still the first to pack a 2K (2,560 x 1,440) display, which works out to be a high 490ppi density on the 6-inch panel. This phone has a beautiful display!

  • TYPE Smartphone
  • OPERATING SYSTEM Android (Jelly Bean [4.2])
  • SCREEN SIZE 6 inches
  • CAMERA 13 megapixels


Engadget’s Richard Lai states,

Like other recent Vivo phones, you’ll find a pair of dedicated audio chips on the Xplay 3S — here you have ESS Technology’s ES9018 DAC and Texas Instruments’ OPA2604 amplifier, both of which are said to be the crème de la crème in their respective categories. This should go nicely with the built-in DTS Headphone:X feature that brings 7.1 or even 11.1 surround sound effect to your stereo headphones; plus Vivo’s video streaming service already hosts about 200 Headphone: X-capable movies (along with over 400 movies in 1080p and over 1,000 movies in 720p), with more to be added each month.

Sadly, there’s no info on when the Xplay 3S will be available for purchase. All we know is Chinese online store Tmall will be taking pre-orders soon, and there’s no doubt that Vivo is pushing for a full launch before Chinese New Year (January 31st for 2014). The price is CN¥3,498 or about $580, and the company told us that it has big plans for the overseas market next year, so we shall keep an eye out for the Xplay 3S’ next move.
