iQOO Z1x coming soon with Snapdragon 765G
According to the Chinese leaker, the company is about to announce a new device, a different solution than the flagships the brand has become accustomed to. iQOO Z1x - therefore it will be part of the Z series - it will be the first medium range of the company and will be moved by Snapdragon 765G. In short, apparently the Vivo family of devices will also open to other price ranges, even if at the moment there are no details on the figure to which the newcomer will be sold.
Obviously for now it is difficult to make predictions but the first rival that comes to mind is Redmi 10X, the 5G smartphone cheaper on the square (1599 yuan, approx 200€ at the current exchange rate). On the other hand the Redmi k30i it is the cheapest 5G model with Snap 765G, priced at 1899 yuan, approximately 235€.
In short, these are the two main competitors of the new iQOO Z1x and we are curious to know more: will it be able to offer a more advantageous price compared to the models already mentioned? At the moment by iQOO everything is silent and the Digital Chat Station post has been deleted from his Weibo profile. Consequently, everything is to be taken as simple indiscretions, at least until a confirmation by the brand.

We hoped that the iQOO Z1x had a worthy battery, given the 120 Hz screen.
And so it will be, at least according to the latest leak, in which we are revealed an amperage from 5.000 mAh with recharge a 33W. Not a record but still more than discreet for a smartphone that promises to be promising.
