Vivo X6S and X6S Plus are now official
Back in December 2015 Vivo had launched two high-end smartphones, the Vivo X6 and X6 Plus. Now, the Chinese manufacturer released two new models meant to be successors to the X6 and X6 Plus, named the Vivo X6S and X6S Plus. The new phones sport the very same unibody design with rounded edges but are equipped with the Snapdragon 652 SoC instead of the less powerful MediaTek’s MT6752 processors used in last year’s models.
The new Vivo X6S comes with a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED display, while the X6S Plus features a 5.7-inch unit. Both work at FullHD (1920 x 1080 pixels) resolution. Accompanying the octa-core, 64-bit Snapdragon 652 processors clocked at 1.8 GHz, are 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of built-in storage space (partly taken by the Android 5.1 operating system with Vivo’s FunTouch UI on top).
The Vivo X6S and X6S Plus are advertised as “HiFi” smartphones. Indeed, they carry high quality audio components: the X6S features the AKM4373 32-bit DAC , while the X6S Plus comes with the Yamaha YSS-205X audio processor with ES9028 DAC.
The smaller of the new duo comes with a 13 MP main camera with phase-detection auto focus (PDAF) and an 8 MP selfie shooter on front. The X6S Plus also sports an 8 MP front-facing camera, but the main unit uses a 16 MP sensor, also with PDAF.
Vivo X6S is equipped with a 2,400 mAh battery while the X6S Plus houses a 3,000 mAh one. Both new phones support dual SIM, 4G LTE and Bluetooth 4.2 and come with fingerprint sensors on the rear for additional security.
The new handsets are now available for preorder at ca. $400 for the X6S and ca. $462 for the X6S Plus. Shipping is scheduled to start on April 5th.
