Vivo took advantage of the Mobile World Congress to unveil the X5 Max +. Less impressive than the original, with 4.75 mm thick, this new variant nevertheless corrects the main defects, namely autonomy and poor heat dissipation.
Gionee benefited from MWC to present a new Elifa S and, unlike its predecessors, the Elifa S7 does not claim under the thinnest smartphone in the world.

Message received from Vivo, which has just introduced a new variant of its X5 Max.
Extended battery life and overheating under control
To recap, the X5 Max measuring 4.75 mm thick, which had just earned the precious title to its output even if it has since been taken over by the IVVI K1 Mini. A feat which required some sacrifices, the most damaging of which was the battery. 2000mAh, it was a bit light to power a Phablet 5.5 “display with Full HD and octa-core Snapdragon 615 chipset clocked at 1.7 GHz. Not to mention the bad dissipation perceptible heat outside. The X5 Max + fixes it today.
Formalized at the MWC in Barcelona, this new variant introduced a slightly more generous battery 2300 mAh. As a result, the frame becomes thicker and passes 5.1 mm, which should also help to control the overheating problem. This is probably also the reason why Qualcomm’s chipset was replaced by a MediaTek MT6752 supplied with, again, an octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU running at up to 1.7GHz but Mali-T720 for graphic party.
The rest of the data sheet remains unchanged and includes, a full HD 5.5 “, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB of internal memory and two cameras 13 and 5 megapixels. The X5 Max + is still running KitKat dressed FunTouch 2.0. The price also remains the same: 2998 yuan, or about 430 euros.
