Vivo Z3 Price, Key Features Leak Ahead of Launch Tomorrow; Reveals Snapdragon 710 SoC, More

The upcoming smartphone will pack in a lot of features for its affordable price tag, such as infrared face unlock technology and gaming-centric features


Earlier this year, Vivo announced its latest Z-series, which sits between its flagship X-series and the midrange Y-series. Going by the various teasers and leaked images that have surfaced in the past few weeks, we have got enough information about the upcoming Vivo Z3 smartphones. One of the latest leaks that we have stumbled upon reveals some of the key specs of the phone. Although the launch date is just around the corner, this leak has left just a little to imagination.

Key Specifications of Vivo Z3 Leak Ahead of Launch

While we already know that the Vivo Z3 will be powered by the Snapdragon 710 SoC along with the company’s Dual Turbo technology to optimize the system performance and improve the gaming experience, a recently leaked poster has given away more information about the smartphone. Apart from confirming the presence of Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset, the poster says that the Vivo Z3 will sport a huge 6.3-inch display with a waterdrop notch to maximize screen estate. The teardrop-shaped notch will also house the necessary sensors for Infrared face unlocking, which performs better than normal 2D face unlocking tech in low light conditions. Apart from Infrared face unlocking, the phone will also have a rear mounted fingerprint sensor for additional convenience. The phone will also feature Vivo’s dual engine flash charge and promises a strong battery life.

As per the leaked poster, the gaming experience would be further enhanced by 4D smart shock tech, that would make gaming more immersive. The Vivo Z3 will also come with the company’s Jovi smart voice assistance. The front camera would apparently be 12MP and it will come with various beauty effects for better selfies. There would be a dual camera system on the back and the phone will presumably ship with Android 8.1 Oreo-based Funtouch OS.

The poster also says that the 4GB RAM/64GB Storage variant of the phone will cost Rs. 17,020, the 6GB/64GB model will be pitched at Rs. 20,209, and 6GB/128GB variant will retail for Rs. 24,469. A poster that was leaked earlier had suggested that the Vivo Z3 will be launched on October 17.

With Snapdragon 710, Will It Be Able to Rival Nokia 7.1 Plus

The Vivo Z3 will compete with other Snapdragon 710-fueled midrangers such as the Nokia 7.1 Plus and OPPO R17 Pro. While the specs are largely comparable, the Vivo Z3 may fare better in the market because of its price friendliness and gaming-centric features. The price of the OPPO R17 Pro is expected to be Rs. 35,590, while the Nokia 7.1 Plus is expected to fetch Rs. 25,990, which is not a lot higher than Vivo Z3’s expected price, but based on what we know so far, the Vivo Z3 will apparently give you more bangs for your bucks.

It is just a matter of hours before the Vivo Z3 is unveiled officially. Meanwhile, here is the company’s trend-setting Vivo NEX:
