vivo x6

The smartphone manufacturer may not be the most popular manufacturer in the United States, but they sure get a lot of attention on the other markets. As Vivo spreads, they seem like they are starting to aim towards other markets, not only the ones they are already known at. So no, let’s take a look at their latest effort to get the attention of those who still haven’t heard of them!

The Features 

The Vivo X6 is a 5.2” smartphone with a Super AMOLED display and a pixel density of 424 PPI. The phone has a metallic back, and feels good in the hands.

Internally, the Vivo X6 uses a MediaTek 6752 octa-core processor and 4 GB of RAM.

In terms of the camera, what you will find on the new Vivo X6 in a 13-megapixel back camera with a LED flash and a 8-megapixel front (or selfie) camera.

What the Vivo X6 can brag with is a fast battery charging option, and of course, let’s not forget the popular fingerprint scanner, located in the front. Check out the full specifications!

However, all in all, it is an affordable phone that deserves recognition and might perform well on the American market.
