Vivo last month launched the Vivo Z1 in China. It s a mid-range smartphone, which comes powered with Snapdragon 660 SoC and 4GB of RAM. Now it looks like Vivo is planning to expand its Z-series further, by adding another smartphone dubbed as the Vivo Z1i.

The phone was spotted on Slashleaks, giving us an idea of the smartphone s design and a couple of specifications. The leak mentions the device to come with a 6.26-inch screen with a full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2280 pixels. This means that the phone will not be sporting a notch like the Vivo Z1. The phone is also touted to be running on a Snapdragon 636 SoC and 4GB of RAM with 128GB of storage. Also Read - Vivo X50 Review
The dual camera setup at the back is said to be consisting of a 13-megapixel sensor, tagged alongside a 2-megapixel sensor. The setup is very similar to the one featured on the Vivo Z1, which could mean that the secondary sensor is present for depth measurement and taking bokeh images. There is also the same 16-megapixel camera at the front, which most likely would be supported by AI features. Lastly, the phone is suggested to be running on Android 8.1 Oreo and will be packing a 3,180mAh battery.

The post also mentions the phone to be priced at RMB 1,998 (approximately Rs 20,700), which is very close to Vivo Z1 s launch price of RMB 1,798 (approximately Rs 19,250). There is still no word of the Vivo Z1 coming to India, which leads us to doubt if the Vivo Z1i will ever come to the Indian market either.
