More Vivo X5Pro details leak: USB type-C, phase detection autofocus camera

When it comes to Chinese phone brands, it's Vivo at the top of the food chain, and the maker's price range usually reflects that. Oppo's parent company has Vivo as its upscale brand, outing a handset after handset with excellent specs and design, as well as innovative features.


Besides outing the first phone with a Quad HD display, Vivo is known for being the media and design junkie's maker, as its handsets come with slim and premium chassis, dedicated audio processors, and camera-centric editions.

The latest from Vivo seems to be a midranger, dubbed X5 Pro, but what a midranger it is! Besides the rumored show-stopping 32 MP front-facing camera, which might be just an interpolation trick, the full specs sheet is now revealed, indicating a 64-bit Snapdragon 615 processor inside, and the innovative USB Type-C connector will also be in store. As you can see from the infographic here, the rear camera will be no slouch, either, expected to land with phase-detection autofocus technology, like on the latest Samsung flagships.

The X5 Pro is expected to be unveiled next week with a metal frame, phablet-rank display, and a generous 3,500 mAh battery - knowing Vivo, all these goods are unlikely to come at production costs.
