As expected, Vivo on Monday launched two new smartphones namely Vivo X6 and Vivo X6 Plus in China. The X6 starts at CNY 2,600 (roughly Rs. 27,000), while the China Unicom version costs CNY 2,500 (roughly Rs. 26,000). The X6 Plus is priced at CNY 3,200 (roughly Rs. 33,200) with China Unicom version costs CNY 3,000 (roughly Rs. 31,000). The handsets will be available starting Monday.
The Vivo X6 (seen above) is a dual-SIM supporting smartphone running FunTouch OS based on Android 5.1 out-of-the-box. It sports a 5.2-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) resolution Super Amoled display with 2.5D curved glass and a calculated pixel density of 424ppi. Under-the-hood the handset packs an octa-core MediaTek MT6752 processor clocked at 1.7GHz, clubbed with 4GB RAM and Mali-T760 GPU.
The metal-clad smartphone houses a 13-megapixel rear camera with phase detection auto focus sensor, 6P lens, f/2.2 aperture, and LED flash, while an 8-megapixel fixed focus front-facing camera is also on board. The Vivo X6 sports 32GB of inbuilt storage, which can be further expanded using a microSD card (up to 128GB). The second SIM slot also works as the microSD card slot.
Under connectivity options, the X6 features 4G LTE (with support for Indian LTE bands), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, USB-OTG, GPS, FM radio and USB 2.0. It measures 147.90x73.75x6.56mm, weighs 135.5 grams and is backed by a 2400mAh battery. As mentioned by the company, the smartphone includes 'Twin Engine Flash Charge' technology and Nine Vivo Charging Protection System for faster and safer charging.
The dual-SIM Vivo X6 Plus (seen above) on the other hand features a 5.7-inch Super Amoled full-HD display with 2.5D curved glass and a calculated pixel density of 389ppi. Unlike the X6, the X6 Plus comes with 64GB inbuilt storage out-of-the-box. A 3000mAh battery backs it. The handset sports a Yamaha Hi-Fi chip and a dedicated amp for better audio output. Rest of the specifications are the same as Vivo X6.
The Vivo X6 and Vivo X6 Plus house the same fingerprint sensors placed at the rear panel below the camera. The sensor is claimed to unlock the screen within 0.4 seconds. It can be also used as a self-timer shutter button for taking selfie images. Both are made of anodized aluminium-magnesium alloy. The manufacturing process also included nano injection molding, hand polishing, and laser engraving. They will arrive in Silver, Gold and Rose Gold colour variants.
