Audiophile-targeted Vivo X6S And X6S Plus Are Now Official

By 01:49 Sun, 01 Aug 2021 Comments

Chinese manufacturer vivo has added a pair of recent devices to its lineup today. The recent handsets come as direct descendants to vivo X6 and X6 Plus and are all but identical on the outside. This is just as well, since the metal shell still looks elegant in silver, grecent or pink and reusing the chassis should save some R&D budget, which could be better spent elsewhere.

The devices both come with an even better audio hardware than their predecessors. The smaller X6S is equipped with an AKM4375 32-bit DAC, while the bigger X6S Plus has a ES9028 DAC within a YAMAHA YSS-205X audio processor at its disposal (the same that is used in the vivo X5Max).

But the upgrades goes beyond audio as well. The MediaTek MT6752 powering the 2015 models has been swapped with a elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon 652. While not the top of the line, it still packs four powerful Cortex A72 cores and another four A53 ones plus the Adreno 520 GPU. Displays seem to be unchanged at 5.2" and 5.7" respectively, both of the FullHD Super AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) type. The same goes for memory - 4GB or Random-Access Memory (RAM) and 32GB, 64GB of storage.

LTE is naturally present and so is the fingerprint reader on the back. The only other hardware upgrade seems to be a recent capturing camera in the vivo X6S Plus. The 13MP shooter has been swapped with a 16MP one with quick phase detection autofocus, promising speeds as quick as 0.6 seconds.

Update: Prices have been announced in the official store and are confirmed to be CNY 2598 (around $400) for the X6S and CNY 2,998 (around $470) for the X6S Plus. Shipping is assumed to start on April 5.
