It packs 4 GB worth of random access memory (RAM) and 64 GB worth of internal storage capacity, with support for an external microSD expansion of up to 256 GB. As for the camera, the vivo X7 features a 13-megapixel rear camera with Phase Detection Auto Focus and LED flash features, and it comes coupled with a 16-megapixel front snapper with LED flash, too.

The device runs on Android Lollipop 5.1 operating system (OS) with the FunTouch OS 2.5.1 on top of it, and it is powered by a 3,000 mAh battery with fast charging capability.

The new vivo X7 smartphone is available in China for a price of CNY 2,498 or at least $375 in current exchange rates. On the other hand, it’s bigger variant, the vivo X7 Plus, will be going on sale starting July 15, and only then will its price be revealed.
