Vivo Xplay3S to be the world’s first phone with a Quad HD display (2560 x 1440p)
Vivo, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer has just teased to the world its new creation Vivo Xplay3S. If you think this will be a device that has nothing to offer in terms of features and attractiveness, you will be wrong. According to the teaser, Vivo Xplay3S will be world’s first smartphone having a display with 2k resolution. Actually, the manufacturer specifies the display as having the impressive 2560 x 1440 pixels. Whilst Vivo hasn’t mentioned its exact size, we presume it will be large, maybe comparable to the 6.3-inch Galaxy Mega or the 6-inch Lumia 1520.
However, even compared with the current high-end phablets on the market, the upcoming Vivo Xplay3S will offer more pixels. In comparison, so far the only Android-powered device with such a resolution is the 10-inch Nexus 10 with its 2560 x 1600 pixels. But cramming of these pixels into a smaller smartphone display is something different. There would be no other smartphone carrying such a resolution.
But Vivo Xplay3s has other things to offer. Other specs found on the smartphone include the fastest quad-core Snapdragon 2.3 GHz processor. The phone will support fast speeds through dual LTE, utilizing both LTE TDD and LTE 4G networks. The full specsheet remains to be seen and Vivo Xplay3s can surprise us more, but now we are more interested in the display resolution. The possible effect from having a high-res display is currently unknown. If the advantages of such displays are more than the drawbacks, we can see a new trend in the mobile world. The smartphone technology has already delivered the so-called ultra big smartphones or phablets, but for the screen resolution there’s more space left for improvements.
