Vivo X6 teased officially as specs and images leak

by: Robert TriggsNovember 4, 2015


Chinese smartphone brand Vivo had been expected to unveil a new handset today, but instead has taken the opportunity to tease an entirely different smartphone – the Vivo X6. Along with the teaser, images and hardware details about the handset have leaked, revealing a premium tier device.

Beginning with the teaser, it doesn’t reveal much about the X6, although it certainly looks like Vivo is going after the premium tier of the market. There are also references to a few “more surprises” and something about being “fast enough”, so says my translator. So we are probably looking at some serious performance grunt here.

While Vivo may have hidden the handset away in a box, a separate leak has given us a look at the back of the handset. There appears to be at least five color options to choose from, and the back of the phone looks to be made out of one solid piece of metal.

As for the hardware, the Vivo X6 will apparently be powered by a MediaTek Helio X20 SoC, which features 10 CPU cores arranges in three clusters with varying performance and energy targets. The X20 is built from two Cortex-A72 cores at 2.5GHz, four Cortex-A53 cores at 2GHz, and a further quad-core A53 cluster at 1.4GHz. There’s also a Mali-T880 GPU on board and support for LPDDR3 memory, which makes the chip very capable.

Other specifications include 4G connectivity, 32GB of internal memory, “HiFi” audio, and a 3D Touch features, which is presumably something like Huawei’s Force Touch display. Additional rumors point to a 6-inch QHD (2560×1440) display, along with 4GB of RAM, a 21 megapixel rear camera and a 4,000mAh battery. These are not confirmed, but would certainly make the X6 a powerhouse flagship.

We’re not sure when Vivo is planning to announce the X6, but the appearance of a teaser suggests that it can’t be too far away. What do you think about the phone?

    I’ve been waiting patiently for the xplay 5s and they tease this! The leaked specs sound really great and the 4mm thickness is insane.

    I doubt ask if those spec’s will be true. I would hope it would have some sort of quick charge for that battery. Not to mention it probably won’t make it to the US because of the reason below. Americans are snobs and even though most phones are made in china they don’t want to own some no name phone
