Vivo Z1X India launch next week: All you need to know
Vivo registered its strongest growth yet during the second quarter in India. The company shipped a record 5.8 million devices during Q2 2019 and is planning to strengthen its portfolio in the country. The Z1X from Vivo has been confirmed to feature a 48-megapixel main camera. The leaks so far point at the device being a big step up from the Z1 Pro launched last month.
“The Z1X is designed for consumers that are performance oriented and love playing heavy density games on their handset,” Vivo said in a statement. The Z1 Pro launched with Snapdragon 712 processor and the Z1X might step up. The device might actually launch with Snapdragon 730 SoC, which is available only on Redmi K20 in India. The smartphone is said to be aimed at the online smartphone market and Vivo might be taking dual retailers strategy.
Ahead of its rumored launch next week, BGR India has learnt that Z1X will be coming with a USB Type-C port and support flash charge. There is a possibility that the Z1X will also feature a 5,000mAh battery like its predecessor. The use of flash charging should help top up the device faster than Z1 Pro. There is also a rumor that the Z1X will be launched in the sub-Rs 20,000 price segment. It is expected to compete with Redmi K20, Realme X and Oppo K3.
