Chinese smartphone maker vivo is set to announce its much awaited new entrant in its high-end Xplay line on March 1, as the company has already confirmed. Yet it looks like vivo could unveil another device on that occasion, or perhaps just slightly lower-specced version of theXplay 5.
That’s because a yet-unofficial vivo smartphone, bearing the model number PD1522A, has been benchmarked using GFXBench, which means a pretty complete list of its specs has been outed.
This definitely isn’t the Xplay 5, at least not its highest-end iteration if there will be more than one. That will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 chipset, as vivo has acknowledged, and this will be aided by a whopping 6GB of RAM.
The PD1522A, on the other hand, has the Snapdragon 652 at the helm, and ‘just’ 4GB of RAM. So it could be a different device altogether, or the entry-level version of the Xplay 5, as Chinese companies often release multiple iterations of their wares, with slightly different specs and price points.
Whatever the case, the vivo PD1522A also comes with a 5.4-inch QHD touchscreen, a 16 MP rear camera, an 8 MP selfie shooter, 128GB of storage, as well as Android 5.1.1 Lollipop on board.
