We are already well aware that vivo is working on the X7, as well as its bigger X7 Plus sibling. These are said to be the spiritual successors to the vivo Xshot and according to some official teasers will be unveiled on June 30.
We now know quite a bit about the new handsets and today’s fresh leak offers a glimpse of one of the the devices out in the open along with some extra hardware info. Judging by the scale of the unit in question, we are probably looking at the bigger vivo X7 Plus, said to come with a 5.7-inch display. Also, we are fairly certain this is not an actual functioning device, but rather a dummy one.
Regardless, it does look the part and for what it’s worth, is probably what the end product is going to look like. As far as design goes, there is really nothing all that surprising, as it does follow the company’s traditional styling. The fingerprint reader appears to be embedded in the home button on the front, as one is absent from the back, but that was already revealed through another one of vivo’s teasers.
After some initial mix-up regarding specs on the X7, industry sources now seem to agree that at least one of the devices will be powered by a Snapdragon 652 SoC along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. There has also been word of a 6GB RAM, plus 128GB storage version. The 16MP primary shooter is certain at this point as well.
As for price, we have been hearing some conflicting reports. Apparently the basic one will cost somewhere along the lines of CNY 2598 or CNY 2698 (about $400), while the alleged upper tier should be CNY 3288 (around $500).
