Photo Announcement. Vivo iQOO Z6x - a modern budget smartphone for China

Today in China, Vivo announced its new smartphones Vivo iQOO Z6x and Vivo iQOO Z6 5G China (not to be confused with Indian namesake). This news is about the younger device, about Z6x. And you can read about the second smartphone here.

It's difficult with relatives.

On the one hand, we can say that most of all Vivo iQOO Z6x is similar to Vivo T2x sold in the same place in China. Appearance, battery, screen, cameras... But if you take a closer look, it turns out that Vivo T2x has an extremely high screen refresh rate, and hardware at timesYou are more powerful - the chipset there is MediaTek Dimensity 1300, which in AnTuTu scores under 700 thousand points. Otherwise, yes... Smartphones are about the same.

On the other hand, Z6x can be called an almost exact copy of a couple of Vivo Y76s 5G / Vivo Y74s 5G. Only those have a third smaller battery, only 4100 mAh. But exactly the same charging speed. Well, the design of the island of cameras is slightly different, but this can just be neglected.

Vivo Y76s 5G

Enough about relatives, let's talk about characteristics.

Last year's MediaTek Dimensity 810 chipset. In AnTuTu we are waiting for 300-400 thousand points, i.e.�. normal middle class. 6 or 8 GB of RAM, 128 or 256 GB of permanent. Apparently, there is no support for memory cards.

Screen without increased refresh rate, but with a high (180 Hz) sensor polling rate. Standard large IPS-matrix. 6.58" (104 cm²). High resolution, 1080x2408 (401 ppi).

Excellent battery, as much as 6000 mAh. Charging is also very fast, as much as 44 watts.

There are few cameras. The front has a resolution of 8 MP. Behind the double module 50 + 2 MP - the main camera and macro.

Side-mounted fingerprint reader. The NFC module is not visible. HourLTE tots are categorically not suitable for us. Type-C and dual-band Wi-Fi are in their rightful places.

The prices are pleasant, because they are low. ¥1199 (₽10500, $175), ¥1399 (₽12200, $204) and ¥1599 (₽14000, $233) for 6+128, 8+128 and 8+256 GB respectively.
