Vivo XShot with 13 MP Sony camera and Snapdragon 801 CPU announced

After creating a huge hype around the camera, the Vivo XShot has finally been unveiled but without the much awaited goodies like the 24 MP camera.


Vivo has officially announced the high-end Vivo XShot which is a camera-centric smartphone. The device flaunts a massive 5.2 inch display with resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The smartphone is powered by the quad core Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.5 GHz along with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. The handset has apparently managed to score over 40000 at the Benchmarks.


Being a camera-centric phone, the Vivo XShot offers a Sony-made 13MP sensor with optical image stabilization and a large f/1.8 aperture. There is also a dual tone LED flash. What is interesting is the two-stage shutter button on the phone. If you thought that was good enough, the handset also has a front facing 8 MP camera with a single LED flash (yes, a flash in front as well).

The Vivo XShot runs on the latest Android KitKat version with a layer of the customized FunTouch OS. The handset is expected to sell at $560. There is also another variant powered by the Snapdragon 800 processor with 2 GB of RAM that will be priced at $480.
