iQOO Z5x has been launched in China today. The smartphone is positioned below the iQOO Z3. Prior to the announcement, the Vivo sub-brand had teased key specifications of the latest offering.
The iQOO Z5x comes with a 5G-compatible Dimensity processor, a high refresh rate, fast charging, and other features. The latest offering is the third device in the brand’s Z-series after the Z5 and Z3x. Until now, iQOO hasn’t launched any x-series devices in India, so it’s unlikely that the iQOO Z5x will be launched in the country.
iQOO Z5x specifications and features
The iQOO Z5x sports a 6.58-inch FHD+ LCD display with a waterdrop notch. It features a 120Hz refresh rate, 650 nits peak brightness and Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The power button doubles up as a fingerprint scanner and the back panel features a gradient design. There is a rectangular camera module housing a 50MP primary sensor paired with a 2MP macro lens. Up front, the device has an 8MP selfie snapper.
Internally the iQOO Z5x is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 900 processor coupled with up to 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. The smartphone draws its power from a 5,000mAh battery with support for 44W fast charging. It runs iQOO UI based on Android 11.
Connectivity-wise, the iQOO Z5x comes with a USB-C port, 3.5mm headphone jack, dual-SIM, 5G, WiFI-6, Bluetooth 5.0, and GPS.
