Although the IFA 2019 in Berlin is focusing almost all the technological attention of these last days, not all events are held in the German city. Other manufacturers choose to redirect their presentations to different destinations, and Vivo has chosen India to drop its latest creation on the market: the new Vivo Z1X.
As we have seen in other phones of the Chinese manufacturer’s Z line, with the new Vivo Z1X we talk about a mid-range model that must be able to compete in price and quality with the strong competitors it has in the country, and perhaps I got it. Let’s see in more detail what this Z1X of the oriental firm has for us.

The three cameras are imposed in the mid-range
We have long been seeing how multiple camera systems move through the market and triples already invade the middle ranges in almost all price ranges. With the Vivo Z1X, exactly the same thing happens, and we also run into a 48-megapixel primary sensor, a resolution that is standardized at high speed and is here accompanied by a lens with aperture f / 1.79.
The other two cameras are 8 megapixels and 2 megapixels, the first with f / 2.2 aperture and a 120º lens for wide-angle photography, the second with f / 2.4 lens and with the only mission of taking depth readings. A device with LED flash and that has 32 additional f / 2.0 megapixels on the front of the phone, on the screen notch, for selfies.
Three cameras on the back and 32 megapixels for selfies, great figures for a phone in this price line
The screen mentioned here is a 6.38-inch Super AMOLED with a 19.5: 9 ratio and FullHD + resolution, which leaves us 2,340 x 1,080 pixels in the panel. We have a contrast ratio of 60,000: 1 and protection with SCHOTT Xensation Glass. And under this screen, which has the built-in fingerprint reader, a 4,500 mAh battery with fast charging of 22.5W.
The brain of this Vivo Z1X is a Snapdragon 712 eight-core 2.3GHz with Adreno 616 GPU, supported on 6GB of RAM and with two storage options: 64GB and 128GB, both without microSD. The phone is a Dual SIM 4G with WiFi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, headphone jack and USB Type-C port. It comes with Android 9 Pie under FunTouch 9.1.
Versions and price of LG G8X ThinQ
As we said before, the phone is presented in India and at the moment there is no more price than the local. Since the brand does not sell mobile phones even in the international market, it is assumed that prices for China and little else will be known soon. Meanwhile, this is the price in India of the Vivo Z1X.
