Looks like an iPhone and even functions like one, too. That's the Vivo X6 smartphone.
Besides the lack of a physical home button on the face of the device and a bezel-less display, it seems so far that the rumors circulating on the Internet about the X6 are more true than not.
The iPhone look-alike recently received the go-signal from Chinese regulatory agency, Telecommunication Equipment's Network Access Managements (TENAA). In the submission of Vivo's papers for the certification of the X6, the obligatory four pictures of the device revealed quite a bit more borrowing from other phone manufacturer's designs.
On what looks like an all-metal design, Vivo's X6 features a fingerprint reader on the back similar to LG's and Google's Nexus rear fingerprint reading designs. In addition, because of the all-metal design, the bands of the antenna are incorporated into the body of the device in a style made popular by HTC's One.
Outside of the visual confirmation of some of the rumored tidbits about the device, the rest of the specs are yet to be verified. Of course, that won't stop the Internet from speculating about the X6's specs.
For example, the device's 6-inch screen is said to feature a 1440 x 2560 resolution. Under the hood, a ten-core MediaTek Helio X20 processor is supposed to be running the show along with 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage, a 21-megapixel rear camera, and 12-megapixel front camera with a 4,000 mAh battery powering all those numbers.
Unfortunately, for an Android device that's yet to be released, it's said that it'll still be stuck on Android 5.1 Lollipop instead of Android 6.0 Marshmallow. One juicy nugget of rumored info suggests that the X6 may even come with 1 GB of RAM dedicated to video. In addition, two variants are also expected to be released: the X6L and the X6D. What's the difference between the two supposed variants? Only Vivo knows.
Just like Apple and all the others who followed suit, Vivo will release the X6 in rose gold along with a silver and gold color variation. Finally, taking another page from Apple's playbook, Vivo is also rumored to have incorporated 3D Touch capabilities in the X6. If anything, that would actually be a first for Android.
