Vivo Xshot ultra high-end phone with a pretty unique camera goes official

ByinAnnouncements | May 7, 2014

Vivo Xshot PhoneVivo may not be very popular outside of China, but the company managed to draw attention in the past and apparently has no plans laying low in the future. A few months ago the Chinese manufacturer released the Vivo Xplay 3S which was world’s first smartphone to feature a display with 1440 x 2560 pixels. Earlier today, the company made official the Vivo Xshot, an ultra high-end phone with a pretty unique camera. The Xshot will go on sale soon, first in China, for a price starting at $480.

Vivo Xshot High-end Phone with Unique Camera

Vivo XshotAs the name suggests, the Vivo Xshot is a camera-centric offering. Previous rumors hinted at a 24-megapixel camera, but it turns out that the phone has a more down-to-earth 13-megapixel sensor made by Sony. In addition to dual-tone LED flash, the camera offers f/1.8 aperture and optical image stabilization, which have never been seen together so far.

The camera is also capable of 4K video capture and has a dedicated two-stage shutter button. Moving to the front, we are greeted by an 8-megapixel shooter with its own LED flash and 720p HD video capture. The focus on user-facing camera is a clear indicator of growing popularity of self-portraits.

The Vivo Xshot is not only about camera, though. In fact, even without the unique camera setup, the Xshot would be a pretty impressive device. The phone sports a 5.2-inch display with 1080p and is powered by a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 paired with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory. Another version of the handset will come with a quad-core 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. This one will be priced at $560.

Both models will have 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, microSD slot and a 2,600 mAh battery. Like most Vivo’s products, the Xshot puts a lot of emphasis on sound quality. As a proof of that the manufacturer equipped the phone with a Maxim MAX97220 headphone amplifier, a Cirrus CS4398 DAC, and a TI TLV320 ADC chip for wider audio input bandwidth. The Xshot will ship with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with Vivo’s Funtouch OS 1.2 on top of it.
