iQOO announced the Z5 last month, and today it followed up with the Z5x. The iQOO Z5x is built around a 6.58″ FullHD+ 120Hz LCD with a waterdrop notch for the 8MP selfie camera. Around the back, we get a 50MP primary camera joined by a 2MP macro unit.
Under the hood, the iQOO Z5x has the Dimensity 900 SoC with up to 8GB RAM and up to 256GB storage. The smartphone runs Android 11-based OriginOS 1.0 out of the box and comes with the virtual RAM feature, allowing you to extend RAM virtually by up to 1.5GB on the 6GB RAM variant and up to 4GB on the 8GB RAM model.
The Z5x has a five-layer liquid cooling system onboard for sustained performance and has Wi-Fi 6 and 5G connectivity. The smartphone also features a side-mounted fingerprint scanner for biometric authentication and packs a 5,000 mAh battery that draws power through a USB-C port at up to 44W. iQOO says the bundled 44W adapter can charge the cell up to 58% in 30 minutes.
The iQOO Z5x has three color options and comes in three memory configurations – 6GB/128GB, 8GB/128GB, and 8GB/256GB, priced at CNY1,599 ($250/€215), CNY1,699 ($265/€230), and CNY1,899 ($300/€255), respectively. It will be available for pre-orders in China later today through vivo’s official website and online retailers, including JD.com and Suning.com.
