This phone looks too good to be $220
The Vivo Z1 Pro has just been announced in India, and it’s one of the most feature-packed budget phones we’ve seen in some time.
Vivo’s latest budget phone starts at just 14,990 rupees (~$218), but it comes equipped with an upper mid-range Snapdragon 712 chipset, 4GB to 6GB of RAM, and 64GB to 128GB of expandable storage.
The battery figures are impressive too, as the Vivo Z1 Pro serves up a 5,000mAh battery with 18 watt fast charging. The phone features a microUSB port rather than USB-C, but do you really care with a battery this big and at this price point?
Vivo’s handset offers a triple rear camera trio, consisting of a 16MP f/1.78 main camera (IMX499), an 8MP ultra-wide snapper (120-degree field of view), and a 2MP depth sensor. The phone also offers a night mode, so hopefully low-light picture quality isn’t complete trash.
Selfies are handled by a 32MP camera in a punch-hole cutout. Speaking of the punch-hole display, you’re looking at a 6.53-inch LCD screen (full HD+) with a 90.77 percent screen/body ratio.
Other Vivo Z1 Pro features worth knowing include a rear fingerprint scanner, 3.5mm port, Widevine L1 support for HD streaming, dual nano-SIM support, and Funtouch OS 9.0 atop Android Pie.
Vivo’s phone goes on sale via Flipkart from July 11 at midday, starting at 14,990 rupees (~$218) for the 4GB/64GB variant. The 6GB/64GB option is set to retail for 16,990 rupees (~$247), while the 6GB/128GB model will go on sale for 17,990 rupees (~$261).
