It’s raining flagships, after Xiaomi announced its Mi5 and while Meizu is readying the Pro 6, Vivo has announced its flagship offerings for this year. The X6S and the X6S Plus share most of the innards but just like the other flagships they differ in display size.
The X6S comes equipped with a 5.2-inch FHD display and it is powered by an octa core Snapdragon 652 clocked at 1.8GHz along with 4GB of RAM. On the storage front the X6S offers 64GB of Internal storage but this time around the microSD card slots have been ditched, this might be due to the fact that both the device come with 64GB of Internal memory.
