A hands-on image of two new flagship smartphones has been posted online, but some people have mistaken them for the Mi 11 and Mi 11 Pro. Sadly for Xiaomi fans, the image is actually of the Vivo X60 series, not Xiaomi's 2021-bound flagships.

The Xiaomi Mi 11 and Mi 11 Pro are already hotly anticipated, but the photo above is not of them. Seemingly first published on Weibo by the likes of DigitalChatStation, outlets like Gizchina asserted that the photo is of Xiaomi's next flagships, which are reputedly due early next year. To the credit of DigitalChatStation, they did not explicitly state that we were looking at the Mi 11 series.

Instead, they merely hinted that the devices pictured would be announced by the end of the year. As a second photo demonstrates, the devices pictured are running OriginOS, the custom version of Android produced by Vivo. OriginOS is believed to be replacing FuntouchOS and may be coming to older devices like the Neo3 and iQOO Pro 3, among others.

According to another Weibo leaker cited by Sparrows News, the photos are of the Vivo X60 series, which will be Vivo's next flagship smartphones. It would seem that the X60 and X60 Pro have been pictured, with the latter being the larger of the two devices shown. The X60 Pro is believed to feature Qualcomm's upcoming Snapdragon 875, although with a 6.65-inch OLED screen that has a 120 Hz display. By contrast, the regular edition will supposedly have an Exynos 1080 instead, for some reason. It is unknown when Vivo will announce the X60 series, but it will be before the end of the year, according to DigitalChatStation.
