Vivo is launching the X5S smartphone in China today. The successor to the Vivo X5 keeps the same slim 6.3mm aluminum body, but is quicker due to a sparkling new set of internals.
The Vivo X5S sports the 64-bit MediaTek MT6752 chipset with an octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU and 2GB of RAM. It also comes with 4G LTE connectivity and 16GB of onboard storage, but no microSD card slot.
At the front, there's a 5" IPS 720p display with a 5MP front-facing camera above it. We quite like the dual-tone design at the back, as well, where we find a 13MP snapper with LED flash. Underneath the unibody design, the X5S draws power from a 2,250mAh battery.
Starting tomorrow, the Vivo X5S will sell for $482 (CNY 2,998). Its larger, 4.75mm thin brother, the Vivo X5Max costs $525 and is also available for purchase now.
