The iQOO Z1 is the world’s first smartphone powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ chip. This is the most powerful rival of not only the current Snapdragon 865 but also the upcoming Snapdragon 875. That’s why many have been thinking the forthcoming and much-rumored iQOO Z1x will be even more powerful. But the manufacturer has designed this smartphone with another goal in mind. Prior to this, we have heard some rumors concerning its features. But today, our protagonist has visited TENAA. Thus, we not only can talk about its imminent launch but also its features.
The most surprising thing is the chip the iQOO Z1x will be packed with. This smartphone will carry the Snapdragon 765G SoC. If you are not aware, this is the same SND765 with increased clock speed. Thus, it’s more focused on gaming. However, apart from this, the company has prepared another surprise for us – the iQOO Z1x will sport a 5000mAh large battery. The latter will also support 33W fast charging.
As you can see, these hardware features hint at its positioning in the mid-range market, while the original model was focusing on the high-end niche. Anyway, the rest of the known features complete the picture. And we can say the iQOO Z1x will be a mid-ranger. The TENAA documents show it will be packed with a 6.57-inch LCD screen, which adopts a hole-punch design. At the same time, this screen has an FHD+ resolution as well as a 120Hz refresh rate.
The overall size and weight of the smartphone is acceptable. It comes with dimensions of 164.20×76.50 ×9.06 (mm) and a weight of 199.5 grams. The company has also kept the 3.5mm audio jack. As we are dealing with a LCD screen, there is no option for the under-screen fingerprint recognition. That’s why the module was placed on the side.
The iQOO Z1x sports a 16MP selfie shooter and a triple-camera on the back, which comes with a 48MP+2MP+2MP sensors combination. At last, it runs Android 10.
