Vivo Z3x

Vivo has launched a new smartphone in China – the Vivo Z3x. The device comes in only one variant – 4GB RAM + 64GB storage. It costs CNY 1198 (approximately INR 12,000). People in China can reserve the device right now. The smartphone will be available for pre-orders starting 1st May, and the actual sale will commence from 8th May. The specifications of the Vivo Z3x are similar to the Vivo Z1 that was launched earlier. Speaking of specifications, let us have a look what the Z3x has to offer.

Vivo Z3x Specifications

The Vivo Z3x sports a 6.26-inch IPS LCD with Full HD+ resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio. The display has a traditional, rectangular-shaped notch. Thanks to the thin bezels, the Z3x has an impressive 90% screen to body ratio. Unfortunately, there is no Gorilla Glass protection over the display.

The Vivo Z3x is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC. This chipset has four Kryo 260 cores clocked at 2.2GHz, four Kryo 260 cores clocked at 1.8GHz, and Adreno 512 GPU. As I said earlier, the device comes in only one variant – 4GB RAM + 64GB storage. There is a hybrid SIM card slot supporting microSD cards up to 256GB. The smartphone comes with Android 9 Pie operating system customized by Funtouch OS 9.

The rear-facing camera of the Vivo Z3x has a 13MP primary camera and a 2MP depth-sensor. The 13MP camera has an f/2.0 aperture, and the 2MP camera has an f/2.4 aperture. The brand hasn’t revealed the video recording capability of the rear camera, but considering the price tag of the device and the chipset it packs, the rear camera should be able to record 4K videos. For selfies, the device has a 16MP front-facing camera.

The Vivo Z3x is a comparatively small, 3260mAh battery. Unfortunately, the device has microUSB port instead of a USB Type-C port for charging and data sync. Speaking of connectivity, the Vivo Z3x has a dual-SIM option, dual-VoLTE support, dual-band Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS, and a 3.5mm audio jack. The Vivo Z3x comes in three color variants – Aurora, Enamel Black, and Hyun Red (do note the names of the color variants mentioned are converted from the Chinese language, and hence, they might not be accurate).
