The Vivo Xplay 3S: The World’s First Smartphone With a 2560 x 1440 Display

xplay-3s

Vivo, a Chinese manufacturer, just released the first smartphone to sport a resolution higher than 1080p. The Vivo XPlay 3S was the biggest deal of the night at an event in Beijing. The whole show was even way more impressive than when Samsung released the Galaxy S4. It even had a huge on stage fight scene with a crazy flashing lights projected on huge screens. Although that was very impressive, it still wasn’t as impressive as the actual phone, which features a 6 inch 2500 x 1440 pixel touchscreen.

As of late, plenty of companies have been showing pre production versions of their 1440p displays. Vivo, however, is the first company to actually put that technology into a smartphone. The display is enormous in every way possible; Not only is the pixel count huge, but the pixel density comes in at 490ppi. There have been a few higher figures quoted in regards to 1440p screens, but the XPlay 3S’s screen size is a bit larger than the other models that we have seen demoed earlier in the year.

The screen isn’t the only impressive feature the phone has. It is powered by a 2.3GHz Snapdragon processor and has 3GB of RAM. There is also 32GB of internal storage space. The body is completely made of metal, measures 4.5mm thick, and weighs in at 172 grams. Other nice features include a 13 megapixel camera, 4G LTE connectivity, and the phone comes in either black or white.

Kind of like the iPhone 5S, the Vivo Xplay has a fingerprint scanner. It is located on the back of the device, just below the camera’s flash unit. This is used to unlock the phone. The XPlay has also been fitted with the new DTS Headphone X audio chip, which provides surround sound to go along with the phone’s cinema style display.

The only BAD thing about the XPlay is that Vivo doesn’t sell their smartphones internationally. So us in the United States may never know the blessings that this phone could bring to us. This doesn’t mean that we wont be getting a 1440p device at all though! Hopefully we will see this type of display on the new Galaxy S5 from Samsung. Until then, we can only sit and be sad knowing that this wonderful device exists already and we can’t even touch it yet.
