Mask, I know you. So the company took Vivo and today introduced a new serious smartphone called Vivo iQOO Z1. I look - something very, very, well, just painfully familiar. Bah, it's almost one in one our old friend Vivo iQOO Neo3! By the way, he’s not so old. Announced less than a month ago.
- Announcement: Vivo iQOO Neo3
What's the Difference? In price and in the chipset. The Vivo iQOO Neo3 is based on Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, the newcomer Vivo iQOO Z1 is based on the latest MediaTek Dimensity 1000+. If there are any other differences, then they are hidden so deeply that according to the official descriptions of the devices you can’t get to their bottom.
What MediaTek Dimensity Is1000+, no one really knows yet. A fresh chip, an easy modification of the MediaTek Dimensity 1000 chip. However, no one smartphone has ever been released on any of these chipsets. According to Vivo, Dimensity 1000+ is gaining more than half a million points in AnTuTu. Those. we can assume that its performance is not very different from the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 865.
The most interesting. Price. The younger version of Neo3 costs ¥ 2698 (₽27700, $ 379). The younger version of Z1 with the same amount of memory is exactly ¥ 500 cheaper (₽5130, $ 70.3). Question of the day. Does this mean that the flagship chip from MediaTek with the same performance is the same amount cheaper than the flagship chip from Qualcomm? If so, then an extremely exciting future awaits us.
Briefly go over the main characteristics of the Vivo iQOO Z1. From 6 to 8 GB of RAM, from 128 to 256 GB of flash memory. There is no support for memory cards.
The screen is large (6.57 ″) and high resolution (1080 × 2408, 402 ppi), but the matrix is not OLED, so the fingerprint scanner was carried to the side.
There is a hole in the screen, a 16 MP front camera is hidden in it. The main camera is triple, 48 + 8 + 2 MP (main, wide-angle, macro). We are waiting for examples of photos.
Good 4500 mAh high-capacity battery with 44 W fast charge (no wireless charge).
There is an NFC module, support for 5G networks, support for Wi-Fi 6. LTE frequencies are “not ours”, there are no seventh or twentieth bands.
Price from ¥ 2198 (₽22500, $ 309) for model 6 + 128GB up to ¥ 2798 (₽28,700, $ 393) for 8 + 256 GB. Agree, more than humane. It is a pity that the prices are “Chinese”. On Aliexpress, the device, if it appears, will cost a little more.
The device was announced in China and for the Chinese market. And its appearance in other countries is unlikely.
