After launching the vivo X9 and X9 Plus, the Chinese company has also unveiled its latest flagship smartphone: the vivo Xplay6. Much like its predecessor, the vivo Xplay5, this device sports a dual-curved display; it also has a dual-camera system now.
Strangely, the vivo Xplay6 still sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor like its predecessor. Considering the fact that most flagship devices unveiled recently – such as the Google Pixel phones and OnePlus 3T – ship with the faster Snapdragon 821 chipset, this is an odd hardware choice.
Aside from its processor, the Xplay6 is certainly a flagship smartphone. It’s packing a slightly bigger 5.46-inch 1440p Super AMOLED dual-curved display, 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM paired with 128GB of fast UFS 2.0 storage (no expandable storage here), a fingerprint sensor on the front of the device, a 16MP front-facing camera, as well as a generous 4,080mAh battery.
The rear camera of the Xplay6 is rather interesting as well. Unlike the Xplay5, the Xplay6 has a dual-camera system, which is made up of a 12MP sensor – with an f/1.7 aperture, four-axis optical image stabilisation as well as phase detection autofocus – and a 5MP shooter, which provides depth information.
The vivo Xplay6 will go on sale in China on the 12th of December 2016. As for retail price, it is set to go for 4,498 Chinese yuan, which comes up to about RM2,870.
