Vivo has sent out a press release to the media announcing that it will soon launch the Z1Pro smartphone in India and that it will go on sale through Flipkart. According to Vivo, the Z1Pro will be the first smartphone from the brand that will be focused mainly towards the online market. In the press release, Vivo says that the Z1Pro will have a seamless performance, long lasting battery backup, an in-display front-facing camera, and an AI-assisted triple camera at the rear. Vivo has also posted a teaser video of the smartphone on Twitter. The teaser video once again confirms that the smartphone will have a punch-hole display. Unfortunately, neither the press release nor the teaser video reveals the exact launch date of the Vivo Z1Pro.

Now, the only smartphone Vivo has launched so far that features a punch-hole display is the Vivo Z5x. The specifications of the Vivo Z5x match with what Vivo is teasing for the Z1Pro. Therefore, it looks like the Vivo Z1Pro is most likely the rebranded Vivo Z5x. A few reports online suggest that the Z1Pro will be the Redmi Note 7 Pro competitor from Vivo, which leads us to believe that the Z1Pro will be priced somewhere around INR 15,000. Now that the Vivo Z5x has already been launched in China, we know all of its specifications. And you can expect the Z1Pro to come with the same specs-sheet. Let us have a look what the Z5x has to offer.
Vivo Z5x (Z1Pro) Specifications
The Vivo Z5x has a 6.53-inch IPS LCD with Full HD+ resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The display, as I’ve mentioned earlier, has a punch-hole for the front-facing camera.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC powers the Vivo Z5x. The Snapdragon 710, as you might know, has eight Kryo 360 CPU cores, and Adreno 616 GPU. In China, the Vivo Z5x comes in four memory configurations – 4GB RAM + 64GB storage, 6GB RAM + 64GB storage, 6GB RAM + 128GB storage, and 8GB RAM + 128GB storage. The Vivo Z5x comes loaded with Android 9 Pie OS, and it has FunTouch 9 customization.
The Vivo Z5x features a triple-camera at the rear, which has a 16MP primary camera sensor, an 8MP ultrawide camera, and a 5MP depth-sensor. The front-facing camera is a 16MP unit. The highlight feature of the Vivo Z5x, however, has to be its battery; it comes with a huge, 5000mAh battery. And moreover, the battery supports 18W fast charging. Sadly, there’s no USB Type-C port; the device uses a microUSB port instead.
