Vivo targets audiophiles with the new X6S, X6S Plus

Vivo X6S and X6S Plus

Vivo has released two new smartphones for dedicated music enthusiasts in the form of the X6S and X6S Plus. The handsets sport nearly the same design language as its predecessors and bear a striking similarity to the iPhone 6S.

This time round, the Vivo X6S and X6S Plus carry better audio capabilities than its previous variants. The former offers an AKM4375 32-bit DAC and the latter goes for an ES9028 DAC and a YAMAHA YSS-205X audio processor. Even the phones internals have gone through a significant overhaul, with the previous MediaTek chipset getting substituted by an octa-core Snapdragon 652 SoC.

Another major upgrade can be seen in the photography department of the X6S Plus. The device now carries a 16MP rear camera which has been equipped with PDAF to focus on photos within 0.6 seconds. However, the X6S packs the same 13MP main snapper as its predecessor.
