Last month, Vivo announced a new mid-range line called the Z series. The first phone in the series is the Snapdragon 660-powered Vivo Z1. Today, a new leak has revealed another phone called the Vivo Z1i will launch soon.
The Vivo Z1i has a 6.26-inch FHD+ (2280 x 1080) display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. This is the same display on the Z1. The phone swaps the Snapdragon 660 of its sibling for a Snapdragon 636 processor and is paired with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
The Z1i comes with dual rear cameras in a 13MP + 2MP configuration. It also has a 16MP front-facing camera. There is a 3180mAh battery for juice and Android 8.1 Oreo pre-installed. Its dimensions are given as 154.81 x 75.03 x 7.89 mm and it weighs 149.3 grams.
The specs of the phone are identical to that of one of the devices (Vivo V1730DT) we saw on TENAA a few days ago. So its safe to say the Vivo Z1i is the same device as the Vivo V1730DT.
An image of the phone provided shows it has vertically arranged cameras and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and will come in red. The source also reveals the Vivo Z1i will launch on the 2nd of July and will have a price tag of ¥1998 (~$300).
You may want to take the price with a pinch of salt as it is higher than the launch price of the Z1 (¥1799/~$270). Though the Z1i does have double the storage of the Z1, its other specs are lower than that of the Z1.
