Vivo Z5x Specs, Features
As for the specs, Vivo Z5x sports a 6.53-inch full-HD+ (1080×2340 pixels) screen with 19.5:9 aspect ratio. As mentioned, the display boasts of a punch-hole, instead of the typical notch design.
Powering the phone is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 AIE SoC at its core. It is further coupled with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Storage can be expanded further up to 256GB by using a MicroSD card.
For imaging, the device sports a total of three cameras at the rear. This comprises of a 16-megapixel primary shooter with f/1.78 aperture, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera with f/2.2 aperture, and 2-megapixel depth camera with f/2.4 aperture. For selfies, the phone makes use of a 16-megapixel shooter with f/2.0 aperture.
As you’d expect, the phone runs Android 9 Pie with highly customizable FunTouch OS 9 skin on top. A massive 5,000mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging backs the device. Lastly, connectivity options on the Vivo Z5x comprise of dual 4G VoLTE, WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, GLONASS, micro USB, and dual-SIM support. The phone measures 162.39 x 77.33 x 8.85mm and weighs 204 grams.
India Launch Date, Price (Expected)
As in China, the Vivo Z5x starts at 1398 Yuan (approx Rs 14,032) for the base model with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. Whereas, the 6GB + 64GB and 8GB + 128GB RAM and storage models cost 1698 Yuan (approx Rs 17,043) and 1998 Yuan (approx Rs 20,054), respectively.
We expect the device to launch at a slightly higher price in India compared to the Chinese market. However, it might still reside in the sub-15K segment, giving a fierce competition to the Redmi Note 7 Pro and Realme 3 Pro smartphones. Now that the company has started teasing the device, we speculate the launch to be somewhere in July. Anyways, we’ll keep you updated with the latest information. Stay tuned.
