Vivo teases the “faster than iPhone” X6 – all-metal design and three finishes confirmed

Vivo has been teasing its upcoming X6 for a while now. The next flagship the company intends to launch is a bit of a mystery, but many sources say it'll rock the deca-core MediaTek Helio X20, 4 GB of RAM, a 21 MP camera, a 4,000 mAh battery, and a fingerprint scanner on its back. Additionally, rumors claim that the phone will have an extra 1 GB of RAM dedicated to its graphics processor, which would make it the first smartphone to rock such a feature.

Vivo's promotion for the device so far has included the flaunting of a few different metal cases for the device, as well as a video, which shows it performing faster than an iPhone 6s in an app-launching test. Today, the company took to social media Weibo to reveal some bits about the handset's design. In vivo's words, the X6 will rock a full metal design, with up to 98% of the phone being made of the cool material. It will also come in three finishes – (drumroll, please) silver, gold, and rose gold.

The phone is, apparently, nearing its launch, however, there is no concrete date set for it just yet.

gold and pink, these copycats are so predictable... i'm sure if Apple next year introduces a blue shade for the iPhone, everybody will jump on the bandwagon like there's no tomorrow

So Apple copyed Samsung this year with the move away from Emmc HD, they was the only other company to do it after Samsung and they they used some cheap setup over ufs to do it as always, but it's why the 6s is so fast over last years 6, I.e. Nothing to do with the A9 CPU
