Latest Vivo X6 leak reveals bezel-less screen and Force Touch
posted by Alan F. / Nov 11, 2015, 8:30 PM
During the last few days, we have shown you images of the Vivo X6, along with teasers that revealed some of the phablet's specs. We are talking about a well-spec'd handset that will reportedly include a 6-inch screen, with a MediaTek Helio X20 chipset under the hood rockin' a deca-core CPU. A 4000mAh battery keeps the lights on. Not only does the rumor mill place 4GB of RAM inside the X6, it also throws in a dedicated 1GB of RAM for the GPU. A video showing the Vivo X6 opening apps faster than the Apple iPhone 6s, was leaked on social media last week.
A new image that was discovered today on Weibo, allegedly shows the Vivo X6 with a bezel-less screen employing 2.5D glass. It would also appear from the image that the phablet will feature Force Touch.
A previous image that came directly from Vivo's own Weibo page hinted that we will see the Vivo X6 in gold, silver and Rose Gold, and the device is said to feature a metal build over 98% of the handset. We are on the lookout for the phone's TENAA certification, which will allow us to confirm the specs on what appears to be a very drool-worthy phablet.
Looks like iOS 9 blurred out with 3d touch context menu. If they had a working model that leaked - how come its iOS 9 on the screen.

It's definitely a mockup, but that is certainly not iOS9 on the screen.

I don't see android buttons, no physical nor on-screen. Well so the succeeded in removing side bezels while the one under (which should be the same with the one on top) is big enough for a physical keyboard (just exaggerating) it can still by reduced tho. But wait. Imagine if those under bezels housed a speaker............. :P

So called "the most useless gimmick ever made", now avalable for android.

Well it will take until next year at best for android to support it, and another year for at least 20% of android devices to adopt that update. That's when app developers will start toying with force touch in their apps, and maybe another year to have at least the same amount of 3rd party apps that Apple had the first month in the App Store. I think for android users it will still be "the most useless gimmick"... I'm still waiting for that other Chinese phone xiaomi or hiway (not sure) that beat Apple to announcing it by one month to actually be relevant. Is that thing available to buy yet?

It was on android first with that ZTE Axon mini. They released the phone weeks before the 6S/6S +

1. Give me on phone that uses force touch before Apple had it on Apple Watch! 2. Measuring pressed area vs measuring pressure on screen are completely two different things! The problem with android version is that if you alternate finger with a pen - you're screwed. If you alternate from using your index then a thumb you're screwed. Force touch requires hardware to measure force not software to measure area covered - that's why Apple gets credit. You can theoretically say that you can grow car parts on trees and here's a possible way, but it's not credible until someone grows car parts on trees. Apple did it right again!

DO YOU EVEN READ YOUR OWN LINKS???? The BB had a clickable screen and the patents outline haptic feedback application for taps, but if you continue reading: Apple also had patents for haptic feedback for taps but hardware-wise is different. Your links are getting more desperate. So far I have not seen anything like apples 3D Touch and how you interact with it and nothing before Apple Watch which is the first on a mass produced touchscreen. Keep trying....

Apparently I wasn't talking hardware-wise nor did I mention anything about the hardware. I'm saying that Apple wasn't the first to use this technology, and I already showed you proof that there's companies that used similar technologies that were made before Apple patented that for the Apple watch.

Completely flew over your head. Apple made hardware to measure force, everyone else used software to measure area pressed. One works as intended the other doesn't. You keep saying it's the same thing - and they're completely different including the very interaction - getting haptic feedback is NOT what force touch is all a about. Haptic feedback is only to insure you feel your press so that you can build that muscle memory, like you do when riding a bike. Without haptic feedback force touch would probably be more difficult tiger used to. What bb did was just haptic feedback - which Apple had long time ago in games, apps, and accessibility settings for various of things.

And where possibly could I buy the afromentioned Axon Mini? According to GSMA this phone isn't even out yet as for now. Seriously, Axon Mini existed only in press information before 6S release, same goes for this Huawei with force touch. Apple was first to hit the market with 3D Touch. Bitch

It is. I just noticed that the priv has a way better version of 3D touch and that didn't need any hardware to do it. Swipe up or down on the icon tonooen a sub menu. A much more accurate, elegant, and faster solution than crappy 3D touch. Lol
