Earlier today we saw vivo launch the iQOO Z5x, and later the company also introduced the T1 and T1x midrangers. Although they look a lot like the Z5 series, we do know they are entirely new handsets with 6nm chipsets and plenty of battery and fast charging.
Vivo already revealed the T1 will be powered by a Snapdragon 778G chipset and will have a 5,000 mAh battery. We finally learned the front panel is a 6.67″ LCD with a single punch hole that supports a 120 Hz refresh rate plus 240 Hz touch sampling rate. We have a triple camera with a 64 MP main snapper, 8 MP ultra-wide-angle cam and a 2 MP macro cam at the back.
The vivo T1x is supposed to be slightly cheaper, and for that, it comes with a Dimensity 900 SoC which is just marginally less powerful than the Qualcomm chip in the bigger sibling. The bigger difference is on the front and back – the main setup still has a 64 MP shooter but only a 2 MP macro cam to keep it company, while the 8 MP front-facing cam is tucked in a waterdrop notch.
The front panel is a 6.58” LCD with a 120 Hz refresh rate and 180 Hz touch sampling rate. There is a 5,000 mAh battery inside as well, and it also supports 44W fast charging, which goes from 0 to 70% in 38 minutes.
Both phones have the so-called Dynamic RAM feature that temporarily allocates some of the dump files to the storage for faster performance, and in theory, the phones can reach up to 12 GB RAM.
The vivo T1 will sell in three memory configurations – 8/128 GB, 8/256 GB, 12/256 GB, in either Black or Blue colors. The company has listed the phone for CNY2,199, CNY2,399 or CNY2,599, depending on the RAM and storage.
Meanwhile, the T1x will cost from CNY1,599 and users are able to pick from three memory combos – 6/128 GB, 8/128 GB, and 8/256 GB.
Pre-orders are already live on vivo China’s website, as well as third-party retailers such as JD.com and Suning.
