Vivo is all set to launch new smartphone under Z series in India on Friday (today). Dubbed as Vivo Z1X, the smartphone will be available for buying on Vivo's e-store and Flipkart. Almost all the specifications and features of Vivo Z1X were revealed days ahead of the launch. Recently, it was confirmed that Vivo Z1X will pack a 4,500mAh battery. The smartphone maker claims that Vivo Z1X offers 32.6 hours of talktime and some very specific number of hours for Instagram, Facebook and YouTube usage. Earlier, Vivo had confirmed that the Z1X will feature 22.5W FlashCharge technology, which promises 3-hours’ worth of talk-time with just 5 minutes of charging.
Coming back to the launch, Vivo Z1X will go official in India at 12 pm (noon) today. The launch will be live streamed on the company's Facebook page. It is worth mentioning here that if it is a rebrand of the Vivo Z5 that was launched in China, the Vivo Z1x can be expected to be priced similarly - CNY 1,598 (approx. Rs 16,000) - when it comes to India.
Vivo Z1X: Specifications
Vivo Z1X will come with a 6.38-inch full-HD Super AMOLED display. The smartphone will come with waterdrop notch on the screen that will increase the screen-to-body ratio of the device, in turn, offer better and improved multimedia experience.

On the back, Vivo Z1X will have a primary 48-megapixel Sony IMX582 sensor. You can also expect the same 4-in-1 pixel binning technique to be used here, thereby giving you a 12-megapixel output by default. The smartphone will also have a 8-megapixel wide-angle camera and a 2-megapixel depth camera, for a better background blur. In the meantime, the smartphone maker confirmed that on the front, Vivo Z1X will feature a 32MP camera sensor.
