Vivo is one of the most successful smartphone manufacturers in China this year. This company is the third-largest smartphone manufacturer in China at the moment, at least in terms of shipments. Vivo had managed to ship quite a few devices in the third quarter of this year, less than Huawei and OPPO, but still quite a lot. The company had increased their shipping numbers for over 100% compared to the same period last year, which is saying a lot. That being said, the company is expected to introduce the Vivo X9 and Vivo X9 Plus smartphones soon, and it seems like their new flagship smartphone is on the way as well, read on.
The company had introduced the Vivo Xplay 5 back in March this year, and that phone was quite interesting. The Vivo Xplay 5 is made out of metal and it sports a curved display on its front side, similar to the one Samsung utilized in the Galaxy S7 Edge. Well, it seems like a new Xplay-branded device is coming from Vivo, the Vivo Xplay 6. According to a new rumor that surfaced in China, the Vivo Xplay 6 will be introduced in China later this month, and go on sale in December, and this will be the company's new flagship smartphone. If the rumored info is accurate, this smartphone will sport a QHD (2560 x 1440) display, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 64-bit quad-core processor will fuel this smartphone, along with the Adreno 530 GPU, and a 4,000mAh battery will be included on the inside. Vivo’s Funtouch OS 3.0 will come pre-installed on this device, and we presume that the phone will be made out of metal, just like its predecessor and the upcoming Vivo X9 and Vivo X9 Plus smartphone.
What about its design? Well, we still don’t know, though it is possible that it will sport a curved display up front, just like its predecessor, but we’re expecting to see a somewhat different design this time around. If this info is accurate, then we’ll probably see a number of leaks of the Vivo Xplay 6 in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for that, we’ll do our best to keep you posted.
