BBK to soon release ultra thin music smartphone
Hailing from China, a company that goes by the name of BBK Communication Technology plans to start sales of a new ultra thin smartphone designed specifically for playing music.
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.
Specifically designed for music the Vivo X1 comes with an enhanced sound system. The flagship converter Cirrus Logic CS4398 and the sampling rate converter Cirrus Logic CS8422 will treat music fans and there’s also a signal-to-noise ratio of more than 100 dB.
Available now in China the BBK Vivo X1 runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and retails for USD 400. This much money also gets you the Beyerdynamic DTX 71 iE headphones in the same package but you can exchange them for the higher quality Sennheiser CX215 or AKG K420 smartphones for some more cash.
