At the launch, previous innovations like the pop-up selfie camera, in-display fingerprint sensor, and 120W fast charging were recapped. According to Vivo, the Z1 is keeping the trend alive by being the first Indian smartphone to feature a Snapdragon 712 SoC.
The Vivo Z series is targeted at the generation Z users and has been developed keeping these consumers in mind.
Design and Display
Unsurprisingly, Vivo Z1 sports a generic design with a glossy finish and gradient colors. The triple sensor rear camera is vertically aligned on the top left, next to the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
On the front, the 6.53-inch IPS LCD display features a large punch hole on the top left. The 1080p display sports an 83.4 percent screen to body ratio and a 395 ppi pixel density. The smartphone will be available in three colors: Sonic Black, Sonic Blue, and Mirror Black.
Internal and Storage
Towards the innards, the Z1 is powered by a Snapdragon 712 SoC in combination with 4 or 6 GB RAM and 64 or 128 gigs of built-in storage. Since the phone targets Generation Z and its gaming obsession, Vivo has thrown in a Cooling and Game turbo mode.
The phone comes with an ultra-gaming mode which improves the surround sound as well as the haptic feedback. For games like PUBG, this smartphone comes with a voice changer function and sound localization training center.
The phone runs on Funtouch 9 flavored Android 9.0 Pie.
At the back, it has a basic triple sensor rear camera with a 16 MP main sensor, an 8 MP ultra-wide lens, and a 2 MP depth sensor.
Vivo has used an impressive 32 MP selfie camera housed in the punch hole at the top left of the display.
Battery and Pricing
For a better and longer gaming experience, the phone comes with a hefty 5,000 mAh battery that is backed by 18W fast charging. It also has a reverse charging option, which means it acts like a power bank when needed. By the way, here is the link to the latest and updated Vivo Mobiles Price in Pakistan.
The basic 4GB/64GB variant is available at $217 while the slightly beefed up 6GB/128GB model comes in at $261.
