We already knew it will have Snapdragon 765G chipset and a 5,000 mAh battery, but today two leaksters revealed even more details on Weibo. The iQOO Z1x will arrive with a 6.57 LCD that comes with a 120Hz refresh rate, while the fast charging will be downgraded to the still very respectable 33W.
One of the leaksters also revealed the main camera will have a 48MP sensor. What is more important for a gaming device is the memory – and the other leakster says 8/128 GB, but he didn’t confirm whether it will be DDR5 RAM + UFS 3.0 storage, or vivo is more likely to stick with the cheaper and somewhat less speedy DDR4X & UFS 2.1.
The price is the big question here – the regular iQOO Z1 started from CNY2,198, but the 8/128 GB version was CNY2,498 ($350/320). If the Z1x is trying to reduce the price while keeping the iQOO experience, we are likely looking at the realm of CNY2,000 ($280/250), which is the most competitive price range for midrangers, even if not all of them are gaming-oriented.
