The novelty will sell under the Vivo X1 brand name and will be just 6.55 mm thick. Based on the MediaTek MTK6577 processor at 1.2 GHz (Cortex-A9 ARM) the smartphone features PowerVR SGX531 GPU, a 4.7-inch IPS display at 960 x 540 pixels, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, 8 MP rear camera, 1.3 MP front camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a built-in compass and a 2000 mAh battery.
