Vivo officially launched their new Vivo X5 Pro mid-range device at press events in China today. The Vivo X5 Pro is equipped with a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED 1920 x 1080 resolution display that employs 2.5D glass technology. Typically 2.5D glass is being used as part of efforts to create a bezelless screen illusion or for design purposes, which it appears the latter is the direction Vivo took.
Inside the X5 Pro, Vivo packed in a Snapdragon 615 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and a 2300 mAh battery. All of this hardware will be powering Android 5.0 Lollipop with the company’s FunTouch OS 3.0 interface on top. The X5 Pro is a dual SIM device and supports 4G LTE networks. Possibly taking a page from HTC, the front-facing camera is an 8MP sensor that can interpolate images to 32MP. More interesting though is that the front-facing camera incorporates some eye recognition technology that will allow users to secure data and applications.
Vivo did not announce pricing or availability, but the X5 Pro is expected to hit the market with a starting price of 2698 yuan ($435 USD).
