Vivo teases the X6, a monster phablet with dedicated graphics RAM
While we were expecting some imminent Xplay 5S announcement today, Vivo actually took the date to tease us about an upcoming X6 phablet, and a November 11th phone sale bacchanalia.

The first two phones on the sales date are existing handsets, or their upgrades, like the low-end Y23, which will probably be announced with wider availability, and an X5Pro version with 32 GB of storage is teased. Next in line for the November 11th blowout is a Vivo X5Max+, which we already saw being certified by TENAA, the Chinese equivalent of FCC.

The new and surprising kid on the Vivo block that is being teased for imminent release, however, is the X6. This one is shaping up to be a real monster, if speculation about its specs is to be believed. Vivo uses the word "fast" many times to describe it in the teaser, and rumor is that the X6 will sport 1 GB of dedicated graphics RAM for the first time in a phone. 

Other rumored specs include a 6" Quad HD display with Force Touch tech, a deca-core Helio X20 processor, 4GB of RAM, 21 MP camera, and 4000 mAh battery to back it all up. A pretty respectable sheet, and, judging from alleged hands-on photos below, as well as a posting with 8 different X6 backgrounds on Vivo's Weibo account, it might come in different colors, too. The Vivo X6 is said to sport a dedicated shutter button for faster snapping, and run on Android 5.1 Lollipop. How much of this teasing will turn out credible, may become clear as soon as next week, it seems.
