Vivo X6/X6 Plus teaser reveals that the devices will both use a Helio X20 SoC with deca-core CPU

There has been speculation that the Vivo X6 and the Vivo X6 Plus will both be powered by the MediaTek Helio X20 chipset. That would most likely be the MT6797 SoC, which includes a deca-core CPU. On Thursday morning, a Weibo site in China happened to post a teaser for the Vivo X6/ X6 Plus allegedly hinting that the devices will both be powered by a Helio X20 chip. The teaser also clearly confirms 4G LTE connectivity for the phones.

The Helio X20 isn't supposed to be found inside new handsets until sometime late in the first quarter of next year. So the introduction of both handsets on November 30th could be just a way to whet power users' appetite for these two models, until the phone is actually ready to be shipped around March. Of course, this is all speculation, which raises the stakes of the November 30th announcement.

The Vivo X6 Plus is rumored to be equipped with a 5.7-inch screen carrying a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution. The phone is expected to be equipped with 4GB of RAM, dual charging technology for quick refreshing of the 4000mAh battery. A 21MP camera adorns the back, while a 12MP front-facing camera takes selfies and handles video chats. Another teaser revealed that the X6 would offer a split-screen multi-tasking feature. The Vivo X6 might have the same specs with a 6-inch screen (meaning that the X6 Plus would actually sport a smaller display). The color options for consumers are believed to be Gold, Silver and Rose Gold.

We recently saw two versions of the Vivo X6 Plus certified in China by TENAA, the X6 Plus L and the X6 Plus D. Whatever this all means, we should find out this coming Monday when Vivo makes the X6 and X6 Plus official.
