Chinese smartphone player Vivo on Wednesday launched its new offering Z1Pro with in-display front camera at a starting price of Rs 14,990 in India. With their new phone, they are looking to shake things up in the budget segment that is largely ruled by Xiaomi with their Redmi series phones.
The handset features a 6.53-inch FHD+ captive touch-screen display, which is bezeless but does have a punch hole at the top left side. The hole houses a 32-megapixel in-display selfie camera while the rear set up is a 16-megapixel+8-megapixel+2-megapixel triple camera set-up.
"With the Z1Pro, we are introducing a new breed of smartphones for India's Generation-Z that are a blend of power-packed performance for a superior smartphone gaming experience and a refreshing design," said Nipun Marya, Director Brand Strategy, vivo India.
Equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 chipset and Artificial Intelligent (AI)-engine, the smartphone is fueled by a 5,000 mAh battery that supports dual engine fast charging. Though Vivo announced a tech that allowed phones to go from zero to full in just 13 minutes, they have not implemented that in any of their phones yet.
In addition, the handset comes with special features like ultra game mode, dark mode and a dedicated button for activating Google Assistant in one-press. These should be beneficial for using your phone on the go or for certain specific actions that they pertain to.
The online-exclusive vivo Z1Pro smartphone -- in sonic black, sonic blue and mirror black colours -- would be available for purchase on Flipkart and vivo India E-store starting July 11.
The smartphone comes in three storage variants -- 4GB+64GB, 6GB+64GB and 6GB+128GB which are priced Rs 14,990, Rs 16,990 and Rs 17,990 respectively. The prices are quite competitive and this segment has some really great players that you should consider when you opt for this phone.
