I suppose something like this is bound to happen soon. A smartphone with 6GB of RAM was recently launched in China. The Vivo Xplay 5 Ultimate Edition packs a quad HD dual-edge Super AMOLED display and a Snapdragon 820 CPU.


According to Android Authority, the curved dual-edge sAMOLED display is mostly for aesthetics, and won’t have edge functionalities like the Galaxy S7 Edge. On paper though, the Vivo Xplay 5 Ultimate Edition’s specs look mighty impressive. Aside from what was mentioned, the smartphone features a metal unibody design and comes equipped with a fingerprint scanner, a 3,600mAh battery and a USB Type-C connection port among other things.

Vivo Xplay 5 Ultimate Edition key specs:

  • 5.43 inch Quad HD dual-edge Super AMOLED display (1440 x 2560; 541ppi)
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 CPU
  • 6GB RAM / 128GB Internal Storage
  • 16MP Main Camera with dual-tone LED Flash
  • 8MP Front Camera
  • LTE
  • Dual nano SIM
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS
  • USB Type-C connector
  • Hi-Fi 3.0 dual stereo speakers
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Funtouch OS UI

I highly doubt we’ll see the Vivo Xplay 5 Ultimate Edition in the Philippines. With an SRP of 4,288 Yuan (roughly USD655 or around P31,000), it certainly won’t appeal to a lot of budget conscious consumers. Besides, by today’s standards 6GB of RAM is a bit overkill. But then again, it could just be future proof.

The Vivo Xplay 5 also comes in a standard flagship edition with 4GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 652 SOC. It retails for 3,698 Yuan (roughly USD565 or around P27,000).
