Just last week, Vivo announced that it would be launching the new Vivo Z1 Pro in India via the online retail giant Flipkart. Now, the phone maker has revealed the official launch date for the smartphone. The Z1 Pro from Vivo will be available for purchase starting from July 3.
Vivo Z1 Pro Expected Price, Storage Options
Recently leaked hands-on videos of the Vivo Z1 Pro have confirmed that the phone will be offered in three storage variants. The most affordable model will offer 4GB of RAM with 64GB of storage. The next model will only upgrade the RAM to 6GB while storage will remain the same. Lastly, we have the highest storage configuration with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory.
The Vivo Z1 Pro is quite similar to the Vivo Z5x that launched in China some time ago. As such, it is expected the Z1 Pro’s price in India will be similar to that of the Z5x’s price in China – INR 15,000. Understandably, this price will be effective for the base variant, and the other models will demand slightly higher premiums.
Vivo Z1 Pro Specifications, Features
Vivo revealed that the new Z1 Pro will be the first smartphone in India to come powered by a Snapdragon 712 chipset. This SoC is manufactured on a 10nm fabrication process and offers an eight-core Kryo 360 CPU and an Adreno 616 GPU. In terms of raw performance, expect the Snapdragon 712 to be marginally better than the Snapdragon 710.
Vivo also revealed that the Z1 Pro would sport a massive 5000mAh battery. The phone will most likely run Android 9 Pie out of the box with Funtouch 9 skin baked on top. The display on the phone will probably be an LCD panel with a Full HD+ resolution that measures 6.53-inches.
If our guess about the price of this phone is correct, then the Vivo Z1 Pro will also be the most affordable smartphone to feature a punch-hole selfie camera. Again, if the Vivo Z5x is anything to go by, it is very likely the Z1 Pro’s selfie camera will measure 16MP, while the triple rear camera setup at the back will be comprised of a 16MP + 8MP (wide) + 2MP (depth).
