Vivo currently holds the crown for the world?s thinnest smartphone via its Vivo X5 Max. Now, the Chinese device maker looks like its trying to expand its slim handset lineup and target the more price-conscious market with the upcoming Vivo X5 Max L (take note of the ?L?) model.
Slightly thicker than X5 Max
Talking about design, the Vivo X5 Max L sports a very similar aesthetics to its slimmer sibling. The wide bezels are still there to compensate for its svelte figure as well as the distinct white and alloy body. According to TENAA, China?s FCC counterpart and the source of this news, the handset is only 5.1mm thin. That?s 0.3mm thicker than the X5 Max but still strikingly thin for an Android smartphone. If you place them side by side, it can probably be hard to tell the difference.
Vivo X5 Max L specs
Another significant specification that the certification agency revealed is that the unannounced model will be powered by a 64-bit MediaTek chipset. It?s seen as a more cost-effective move from the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor running the X5 Max. As for the display, we?re looking at a 5.5.-inch Full HD (1080p) screen.
The rest of the Vivo X5 Max L innards includes 2GB RAM, 16GB of built-in memory with an option to expand up to 128GB via a microSD card, 13-megapixel rear camera, and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter.
Pricing details are still unknown at the time of this writing but given that this model has toned down specs compared to its slimmer sibling, we can safely assume that it will be pegged with a cheaper price. The Vivo X5 Max L is expected to launch in its native China initially and to other Asian countries soon afterwards.
