vivo launches iQOO U1x with Snapdragon 662, Z1 gets a new version
The iQOO lineup of vivo is quickly expanding with the latest addition called vivo iQOO U1x. It comes with an ultra-affordable price tag and big battery as its key selling points.
The iQOO U1x is powered by a Snapdragon 662 chipset, coupled with 4GB or 6GB of RAM. Storage is either 64GB or 128GB.
On the front sits a 6.51” LCD with 720p resolution and a waterdrop notch for the 8MP camera. The triple shooter on the back brings a 13MP main unit alongside a 2MP depth sensor and 2MP macro cam.
Inside there is a 5,000 mAh battery that charges over the dated microUSB port. There’s no support for fast-charging of any sort.
Since the phone is launched initially in China, it will come with no Google services but will have Jovi AI assistant out of the box, as well as iQOO UI, based on Android 10.
Launching in Silver or Black colors, the price of the vivo iQOO U1x starts from CNY899 for the 4/64GB memory option, which translates to about $135.
vivo also announced a new memory combination of the iQOO Z1 that has a mightier chipset and 5G connectivity. The new combination is 12GB RAM + 128GB storage and costs CNY2,598.
Both the new iQOO U1x and the updated memory iQOO Z1 option are up for pre-order on vivo’s store and major online Chinese retailers such as JD and Tmall.
