“Vivo Z3 comes in two processor variants – Snapdragon 670 and Snapdragon 710”
The Vivo Z3 smartphone has been launched by the Chinese phonemaker in its home market. It is the successor to the follow-up to the Vivo Z1 and touts the 6.3-inch full-HD+ display, dual rear cameras, and face unlock as its key capabilities. Interestingly, it comes with processor options, something that is not usually seen on handsets within the same market. For now, the Vivo Z3 has gone official in China only but it remains to be seen whether it will hit the global markets. This launch comes soon after Vivo launched the Z3i smartphone in China.
