vivo X6 phablet stops by the Chinese TENAA
The TENAA seems to have its hands quite full these days, what with the ongoing onslaught of impending products. We have already seen the Xiaomi Redmi Note Pro 2 and just yesterday the HTC One A9, Now it’s time for Vivo to shine, with its new X6 hardware going through the Chinese telecommunications agency:
As one can see from the above design, the hardware looks to be making use of a metal body, complete with antenna lines grafted in and an integrated, rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. A single flash module can also be seen flanking the camera.
Along the sides, we can see the phone is quite thin, and thus a small “camera hump” is visible as a result.
The phone, in the event one can not tell from the pictures, is to be a phablet. While vivo itself has confirmed that the device will ship with 4GB of RAM, the full specs are still the subject of rumors. They include: a QHD 6-inch display with curved glass, a Deca-Core MediaTek Helio X20 64-Bit SoC, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of on-board storage, a 21-megapixel rear camera and a 12-megapixel front camera.
The device will ship with Android 5.1 and a 4000mAh battery. It will include support for 4G LTE and Dual SIM usage, as well as capture videos with the rear camera at up to 4K in resolution. MicroSD support is also said to be on-board, and some rumors are even suggesting there will be a full 1GB of dedicated video RAM.
Other interesting rumors include two different variants: the X6L and X6D, however the TENAA has yet to publish spec-related details. Also worth mentioning is that the phone may come with a “3D Touch” type of technology.
As can be seen in the picture above, the phablet will apparently come in Silver, Gold, and Rose Gold color variations. It is expected to be officially announced by vivo toward the end of the month.
