VOTO, best known for being the OEMs behind the very popular UMi X2, launched their latest smartphone in China, dubbed VOTO X6.
Although the name suggests that the device belongs to the new generation of hexa-core devices, the VOTO X6 is in fact an octa-core phone, powered by the widely popular MediaTek MT6592. The device not only comes with some grunt under the hood, but also brings a nice and stylish design to the table, something we don’t always see on MediaTek phones from China.

This combination of style and grunt, however, comes at a premium. The VOTO X6 is priced at 1,599 CNY ($257), but those in China can avail the device at a discounted price of 1,499 CNY ($241) from now until July the 13th. For this, you get a smartphone with a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080p FHD display, 2GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, a 13 mega-pixel f/2.0 main camera, an 8 mega-pixel selfie compatible front camera, a 2300mAh battery, and most importantly, WCDMA + GSM support with dual SIM. This is of course apart from the 1.7GHz MT6592 processor that we mentioned previously.
The phone will be available in Black and White coloured options, with both variants having a faux leather back. Unfortunately, the device will only run Android v4.2 Jelly Bean out of the box, with no word on a future update to KitKat.
