Vivo Z1X launched with 48MP triple rear camera and Snapdragon 712 SoC starting at 16,990 INR
Vivo launched its first Z-series smartphone, the Vivo Z1Pro, in India earlier in June this year. The smartphone at a price of INR14,990 offered great value with triple rear cameras, hole-punch display, massive 5,000mAh battery, and Snapdragon 712 SoC.
Now just after 2 months, the company has launched its refresh, the Vivo Z1X in the Indian market. The new handset comes with upgrades in many key areas compared to the Vivo Z1Pro.
It now has a Super AMOLED display instead of an LCD display of the Vivo Z1Pro. As a result of AMOLED, it now sports an in-display fingerprint scanner instead of a physical fingerprint scanner. Not to mention, it also gets Always-on-Display. However, the biggest upgrade comes in the form of a 48MP main camera at the rear.
The Vivo Z1X is priced at INR16,990 for the 6GB RAM+64GB storage variant and INR18,990 for the 6GB RAM+128GB storage variant. The smartphone will be exclusive to Flipkart with availability to be ensured on September 11. As for the color pallets it will come in Fusion Blue and Phantom Black.

Diving into the spec sheet, the Vivo Z1X packs a 6.38-inch full HD+ display which is smaller to the 6.53-inch Full HD+ display of the Vivo Z1Pro, but as already mentioned, the display is now AMOLED and bears 404ppi density which is again a bump from 395 ppi density. The display drops the hole-punch cutout in favor of a water-drop notch.
The Vivo Z1X picks the same Snapdragon 712 SoC from the Vivo Z1Pro but there is no 4GB RAM option now. The smartphone has only 6GB RAM options along with 64GB or 128GB built-in storage, further expandable up to 256GB via microSD card.
The triple-rear camera suite includes a 48MP Sony IMX582 primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture which is quite a bump from the 16MP primary sensor present on the Vivo Z1Pro. However, the other two sensors, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle sensor with f/2.2 aperture and a 2MP depth sensor are retained. The 32MP selfie shooter with f/2.0 aperture is also intact.
The Smartphone runs Android 9 Pie with Funtouch 9.1 slapped on top. A 4,500mAh battery is smaller to 5,000mAh battery from the Vivo Z1Pro but it now supports 22.5W fast charging instead of 18W fast charging.
The smartphone will be in contention with the likes of Realme X, Realme 5 Pro, the Nokia 8.1, and the Xiaomi Mi A3. Vivo is also gearing to launch its dual selfie camera smartphone, the Vivo V17 Pro in the country quite soon.
