The iQOO Z6 series has been on the market in India for a while, but now the vivo sub-brand has also introduced it to China. The 80W fast charging is one of the noticeable differences between the iQOO Z6 smartphone and the model with the same name in other countries. The more affordable iQOO Z6x, which dazzles with its 6,000mAh battery, was also introduced at the event.
iQOO Z6 Specifications and Features:
The Snapdragon 778G+ and either 8GB or 12GB LPDDR5 RAM power the Chinese iQOO Z6. 256GB or 128GB UFS 3.1 storage options are available, but there is no microSD card slot.
When we look at the front, we see a 6.64″ LCD with Full HD+ resolution, a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz, and a touch sampling rate of 240 Hz. The panel has a peak brightness of 650 nits and 100% coverage of the DCI-P3 100% colour gamut. The power key contains a fingerprint scanner that is mounted to the side.
On the back, there are three cameras: a 2MP depth sensor, a 64MP main camera with OIS and an f/1.79 lens, and a 2MP macro camera. A waterdrop notch and an 8MP sensor are on the front-facing device.
The 4,500mAh iQOO Z6 battery charges at peak 80W speeds in just 10 minutes, reaching 50% capacity. With its sophisticated cooling system, the phone should reduce the CPU temperature by 13 degrees.
iQOO Z6x Specifications and Features:
A 6nm chipset, the Dimensity 810 from Mediatek, is also present in the Z6x. This RAM is of the LPDDR4X type and is either 6GB or 8GB in size, operating at slightly slower speeds than the Z6. Storage is also a little slower because it is still 128GB or 256GB but is UFS 2.1.
The 8.MP f/2.0 camera is housed in a waterdrop notch on the 6.58″ LCD screen. On the side, the fingerprint scanner doubles as the power key.
On the back, there are two cameras. The primary camera is a 50MP model with an f/1.8 lens, and the secondary is a 2 MP macro model. Massive battery capacity of the Z6x is constrained to relatively slower 44W charging rates.
