Vivo upcoming Z-series smartphone to reportedly feature in-display fingerprint sensor

“The upcoming Z-series phone said to be priced under Rs 20,000 in India and will be an online exclusive model”

Vivo is gearing to launch its second phone in the Z-series after unveiling the Z1 Pro handset in India last month. The said phone will reportedly launch sometime in September and now ahead of the launch, IndiaToday Tech reports that the upcoming Z-series phone will have better specifications in comparison with the Z1 Pro. The phone is also said to come with an in-display fingerprint sensor for security, whereas Z1 Pro has a rear-mounted traditional sensor. This means the handset could have an AMOLED display. The pricing is also said to be in-line with the Vivo Z1 Pro, and this means, it should be affordable and under Rs 20,000.

Vivo Z1 Pro comes with a 6.53-inch display, powered by Snapdragon 712 SoC, and pack 5,000mAh battery

The Vivo Z1 Pro base variant starts at Rs 14,990, while the high-end option costs Rs 17,990. As with its predecessor, the second Z-series phone can also be expected to be an online-exclusive model. Unfortunately, nothing else is known about the handset just yet; we might come across more information in the days to come.

To jog your memory, the Vivo Z1 Pro flaunts a 6.53-inch full-HD+ LCD display and is powered by the Snapdragon 712 SoC with Adreno 616 GPU. It runs on Android 9.0 Pie with FunTouch OS skin on top. The handset is available in three variants— 4GB RAM + 64GB, 6GB RAM + 64GB, and 6GB RAM + 128GB onboard storage that is further expandable via microSD card. In terms of optics, the Vivo Z1 Pro rocks triple rear cameras consisting of a 16MP primary sensor, an 8MP secondary shooter and a 2MP depth unit for portrait shots.

There is a 32MP snapper on the front for selfies and video chats. A 5,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging support fuels the phone. The 3.5mm audio jack, micro-USB port and speaker grill are placed on the bottom. The volume rockers and power button are present on the right side.
