Vivo Xplay3S could be the world's first smartphone with 2K display

We’ve already told you about Vivo’s upcoming smartphone that will use Nikon’s camera technology. Like that’s not enough, the company is working on what could be the world’s first smartphone with 2K display. Yup, that’s 2560 x 1440 pixels making for super sharp photos and videos.

And while we’re not sure those extra pixels are really needed, we must applaud the Chinese company for taking this route. Cause who knows – a year from now, all top-end devices may end-up using these screens.

I was one of those claiming that full HD display don’t make much sense (compared to 720p HD ones) cause there’s only so much you can see on the phone’s screen. Today, however, I can clearly see the difference between the LG Optimus G Pro and last year’s Samsung Galaxy Note II (which has a 720p display). The image on LG’s phablet is so much sharper.

Aside from the mentioned 2K screen, the forthcoming Vivo Xplay3S will also boast other top-notch specs that include a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800AB chipset and 4G TDD-LTE/FDD-LTE support to sing along all 3 carriers in China. We also think it will ship with at least 2GB of RAM (perhaps even more), some solid camera and a ton of built-in storage. Release date is still a mystery, though…

    Honestly, I don’t see a point of these super-hi-res screens. There’s also so much you can see on a 5-inch display anyway.
