Vivo X6 will come November 30 with an unexpected MediaTek chipset variant

ThVivo has been making a big deal out of the upcoming X6 lately. Good news is that the phone now has a launch date, and we’ve also managed to find out what SoC it’ll be based on… albeit with a little confusion.

The Vivo X6 was supposed to have the new MediaTek Helio X20 all along, but it looks like there will be at least one variant of the X6 with the MT6752 — a gem of a mid-range SoC that you don’t get to see too often.

Like the previous-gen Vivo, the X6 too could feature multiple SoC variants. We’ve also spotted the X6 being certified in a couple different variants earlier, which adds all the more reason for us to believe that there will be two processor versions with the X6.

Gizchina News of the week


The version that appeared last night on AnTuTu — the Vivo X6D — sports the MediaTek MT6752, and along with that, 4GB of RAM, 32GB on-board ROM, 13 mega-pixel cameras on the front and rear, and lastly, an Android 5.1 Lollipop based ROM.

If the Vivo X6 does come out with an MT6752 though, it’ll be a bit of an anti-climax after a great build up. That isn’t to say that the MT6752 is a bad choice for an SoC, but for a 2015-end flagship one would simply prefer to have something more powerful.

We’ll find out soon — on November the 30th.

    Uhm, I doubt this is real. Mt6752 with 4gb ram seems a bit weird. besides that, its written with a different font in the image.

    Only high-end soc I can think of with t760 is the 7420, atleast that sounds plausible to me.

        on some other sites they are still running strong with the MTK X20 without any mention of a second version… does that makes any sense??

          i highly doubt about a MT6572, but hey… you never know.
          Same story with the X20.

          what’s your thoughts?

              Fast? I beg to differ. I am using Vivo X5 Pro CN edition using MT6752 but the phone is a mid-range phone at best.

              what is so mid range just bcos u seen less crappy benchmarks ??
              what u now calling slower ? u texting sms slower ? u fkin browsing internet slower ? think man THINK

              Honestly, it is YES to all of your questions. I was previously on Xiaomi Mi 2 before switching to Vivo X5 Pro. It is an expensive lesson. Yes, the benchmark scores are higher than Xiaomi Mi 2 but the actual experience of using the phone is poor to average. Like Andi’s review on Vivo X5 Pro, it has great build but not great to live with. There are times whereby I am typing and characters are appearing after a lag of 2-3 sec. The camera and build are the main redeeming features but hardly justify me paying top dollars for US$400+ for a mid-range phone.

      yep… Mali T760 doesn’t seem to be faked and here is the SOC list with T760 : Exynos 7420, Exynos 5433, MT6752, MT6732

      Hmmm seriously, i don’t think Vivo bought Samsung’s SOC to build their phone, but i can be wrong ^^

      I don’t see Vivo using a Samsung SoC they have always used either Qualcomm or Mediatek. If this is anything like the X5 there will be multiple versions. X5 has the base model in addition to the Max, Max+, Pro and Max+ Platinum. A few of those actually used the 6752. What is so weird about a 6752 with 4GB ram?

      If I’m not mistaken Meizu is the only one that has been using Exynos SoC’s (apart from Samsung itself obviously).

    I am thinking this is going to end up being the “Vivo X6 Lite” or something…

    The mt6752/helio x10, are my favourite SOC, because they have really good performance, better than my old htc m8 and nexus 5. They are nearly the same on all the heavy games on the market in terms of frames per second, and they have great 4g, and gps. The only difference being that one or the other chip might lag on a game where the other might not, just because they apps arent well optimised(some of them), anyways, thats just my opinion. ( i also like the sd808)

    Both cameras aren’t 13 mp, the first says 1300mp and the second 13000mp… Am i wrong??

      November 23, 2015

      yes same shows on mine.. because SoC supports QHD..
      I can make QHD photos with mine x5pro
      even front camera is 8mpx it will double to 16mpx when QHd mode selected…

    what u mean unexpected?
    mine vivo x5pro has it.. it supports QHD cameras screen videos..

    Vivo’s cameras are usually good but the software optimisations are really poor. I could only got 7GB total storage for /system. Lastly, the prices from Vivo tend to be too high.
