Popular Chinese smartphone maker Vivo is all set to launch a new smartphone in China on July 31. The new handset called the Vivo Z5 will be the latest Z-Series handset from the company. Vivo only recently launched the Z1 Pro in India. As for the Z5, while we have been hearing about its imminent arrival for a while now, we did not have details regarding its specifications. That was until now. The handset recently made an appearance on TENAA following which eagle-eyed leaksters got hold of the complete spec sheet of the device. This leak was followed by Vivo releasing official renders of the handset – highlighting some of the key features of the Z5 – on Weibo, the Chinese equivalent of Twitter.
Vivo Z5: Specifications, key features
The Vivo Z5, from what we know now, will feature a 6.38-inch notched display with FullHD+ resolution. Unlike the LCD panel on the Z1 Pro, the Z5 will use an AMOLED panel. The handset will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 SoC – which is an overclocked version of the existing Snapdragon 710 chipset that is used in the likes of the Realme 3 Pro and the Realme X. The Vivo Z5 will most likely come in 6GB+128GB and 8GB+128GB configurations. The phone is reasonably thin at 8.3mm and houses a relatively large 4,400 mAh battery underneath. The phone supports 22.5-watt fast charging, and as the case usually is with Vivo, we can expect the company to ship a fast charger with the handset.
Vivo Z5: Teaser poster reveals rear triple camera setup
The teaser images posted by Vivo indicates that the handset will get triple cameras at the back. The primary camera on the Vivo Z5 uses a 48-megapixel sensor. The secondary camera on the handset uses an 8-megapixel sensor while the third rear camera is most likely to be a 2-megapixel depth sensor. At the front, the handset will get a 32-megapixel selfie camera that can also be used to make and receive video calls. The Z5 will be offered in three color options; Green, blue, and white with all the options coming in a glossy finish. The rear panel does not seem to have a fingerprint scanner which means that the Z5, most likely, gets an in-display fingerprint scanner.
As mentioned earlier, the Vivo Z5 is expected to go on sale in China soon after its launch on July 31. There is no word yet of a prospective India launch.
