Hello, I read on an English-language website that the vivo X60 (V2045) and X60 Pro (V2046) received different entries on Google and Geekbench. They also expect a release there soon. You probably know. more about that? Originally I wanted to get the X51. But if the new model appears in the next few weeks, I would of course prefer that.
