Vivo S6 Pro 5G Imminent, Ditches Samsung for Qualcomm

    The Vivo S6 5G has been a resounding success for the company. The device has managed to break 1 million units sales in a year with less demand for Chinese smartphones, so it only makes sense to give it a refresh now with the Vivo S6 Pro 5G coming soon.

    What’s peculiar about the refresh however is the chipset onboard. One of the Vivo S6 5G’s biggest selling points was its Exynos 980 SoC, developed in a partnership between Samsung and Vivo. The new Vivo S6 Pro 5G allegedly ditches it for the more common Snapdragon 765G.

    Now, there are a few other changes here and there on the specs sheet. The battery is now smaller at 4,200mAh, the main sensor of the quad camera setup also sees an upgrade from the 48MP unit to a 64MP unit on the S6 Pro 5G. The rest of the rear setup remains the same.

    The front camera will also reportedly see a small upgrade from being a single shooter to a dual front facing setup. We’re not sure of the specs yet, though we wouldn’t be surprised to see it be a wide angle lens.

    Otherwise, the RAM and storage options all appear to stay the same. The device is tipped to cost 2,998 yuan ($425) for the 8GB + 128GB unit, and a higher 3,298 yuan ($465) for the 8GB + 256GB unit. It’s rumored to launch at the end of this month, though we’ll have to wait and see.
