Vivo Xshot goes official in China with 13MP f/1.8 camera
The Chinese manufacturer Vivo officially took the wraps off the camera-centric Xshot smartphone. The high-end Android handset will be available in China in the near future. There is no word on international availability for the time being.
As expected, the camera is the biggest highlight of the Vivo Xshot. The previously teased smartphone features a 13MP f/1.8 camera unit from Sony with OIS, two-stage shutter button, dual-tone LED flash and 4K video capture. The front-facing camera is an 8MP unit with an LED flash for capturing quality selfies in complete darkness.
The Vivo Xshot will be available in two different versions. The top-end one will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of built-in memory. There will also be a model with Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of onboard storage.
Both versions of the device will feature 5.2” 1080p display, LTE connectivity, and Maxim MAX97220 headphone amplifier. The handset will be powered by a 2,600mAh battery and will ship with Android 4.4 KitKat dressed in the company’s Funtouch OS UI.
Pricing of the Vivo Xshot will kick off at $480 for the Snapdragon 800 model. Its better-equipped sibling will cost about $560 in local currency.
