Audiophile friendly phones!
Recently, it appears that they did it again in announcing the Vivo X6 Plus a super phone that uses the high end ES9028 Sabre DAC, ES9603 amplifier and Yamaha YS-205X chip. They also announced the Vivo X6 which uses the slightly less capable Asahi Kasei AK4375A dedicated DAC.
The Vivo X6 Plus is a 5.7 inch handset with 1080p AMOLED screen. It runs on a 1.7 GHz 64 Bit octa core processor, 4 GB RAM, 64 GB expandable ROM, 13 MP rear camera, 8 MP selfie camera and 3,000 mAh of battery (4,000 mAh option). This phone is also impressively thin even at a large size at just 6.85 mm.
The Vivo X6 on the other hand features a smaller screen at 5.2 inches with an AMOLED 1080p resolution. Runs on a 1.7 GHz 64 Bit octa core processor, 4 GB RAM, 32 GB of expandable internal storage, 13 MP back camera, 5 MP front facing sensor and 3,000 mAh of battery at just 6.56 mm thin.
Both handsets have LTE connectivity, fingerprint sensor at the back, fast charging tech, available in gold, silver, and rose gold metal chassis and runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop w/ Funtouch OS on top.
The Vivo X6 Plus is priced at USD 469 (around 22K Pesos) and the regular X6 has an SRP of USD 390 (around 18.4K Pesos). If you want the 4,000 mAh varaint of the Vivo X6 Plus just add USD 30 to the regular USD 469 value of the handset.
Hopefully this will be available in the Philippines as there are rumors that Vivo is expanding here.
