Update: Never mind the leaks, the real deal is out. It has a bigger than expected 6" screen with the amazing QHD resolution (sometimes called 2K, but either way both refer to 2,560 x 1,440). That gives it a whopping 490ppi pixel density, higher than even the 4.7" 1080p screen of the HTC One despite the sizable difference in the diagonal.

The Vivo Xplay 3S is powered by a Snapdragon 800 chipset - quad-core Krait 400 CPU at 2.3GHz, Adreno 330 GPU and 3GB of RAM. On the connectivity side there's both TD-LTE and FDD-LTE.

The camera (rumors had little to say about it) is a 13MP shooter with a fast f/1.8 aperture. Next to it is a fingerprint scanner and there's a 5MP camera on the front. Vivo has created a custom camera app called Photo+, which shares your videos to the cloud and features augmented reality.

The Xplay 3S phablet weighs 172g (not much for something this size). The body features a metallic bezel and houses 32GB of built-in storage and a 3,200mAh battery.

Vivo went with a custom Android version the company calls Funtouch OS.

Vivo went all out with the audio features - the Xplay 3S TI OPA2604 amp, ESS Technology ES9018 DAC and the DTS Headphones:X, which enables 7.1 and even 11.1 emulation. Vivo offers a selection of 200 movies that work with the Headphones:X feature (the streaming service also offers 400 1080p movies and 1000+ 720p movies, but no QHD movies yet).

Chinese etailer Tmall will start taking pre-orders for the Vivo Xplay 3S soon at a price of CNY 3,498 ($580).
