Vivo X5Pro With Eye Scanner, Snapdragon 615 SoC Launched
Vivo has silently launched a new X-series smartphone, the X5Pro, in China. The smartphone will be available at CNY 2,698 (approximately Rs. 27,800); though there is no word on availability details.

The highlight of the Vivo X5Pro is it features an eye-scanner technology that is said to be employed for unlocking the device as well as can be used to lock important information stored on the handset. ZTE launched what it claimed was the "world's first smartphone" with eye-based biometric solution, the Grand S3 (First Impressions), at the MWC this year. Another highlight of the Vivo X5Pro smartphone is it sports an 8-megapixel front-facing camera that can "interpolate" images to the quality of 32-megapixels.

Unfortunately, Vivo is yet to reveal plans to launch the X5Pro outside China.

For specifications, the Vivo X5Pro runs Android 5.0 Lollipop with the company's proprietary Funtouch OS 3.0 UI on top. Vivo's Funtouch UI is the company's take on Android, similar to what Chinese companies Oppo and Xiaomi have done with ColorOS and MIUI respectively. It features a 5.2-inch AMOLED full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) display that employs 2.5D glass technology.

The dual-SIM based X5Pro smartphone supports 4G LTE. It is powered by a 64-bit octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor coupled with 2GB of RAM. The smartphone includes 16GB inbuilt storage which is further expandable via microSD card (up to 128GB). It sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and is backed by a 2300mAh battery. The China launch was first reported by Android HDblog.

Vivo last month revealed plans to set up a manufacturing plant in India over the next few years and also opened its first company-owned exclusive brand store in Hyderabad.

Earlier this year, Vivo launched the X5S L aka X5S in China priced at CNY 2,498 (approximately Rs. 25,100).
