The smartphone giant Vivo has now expanded its portfolio with the launch of new Vivo Z1 Lite in its homeland China.

The Vivo Z1 Lite is a toned-down version of the Vivo Z1 that came back in August, this year. This new sibling packs a very premium design aided by a reflective glass back, reminiscent of the Z1 but cuts its costs in the hardware department.
