The iQOO Z6 series currently includes three smartphones in India – Z6, Z6 44W, and Z6 Pro. A new media report claims these will be joined by a Lite model in the second week of next month in the Asian country.
The source claims that the iQOO Z6 Lite will be a 4G smartphone and will be a version of the vivo T1x, which is powered by the Snapdragon 680 SoC. Note that we are referring to the dual camera model available in India since there’s also a T1x with triple rear cameras. And then there’s the Chinese T1x, powered by the Dimensity 900 chip. It comes with a 64MP camera and supports 5G networks.
If the iQOO Z6 Lite is a rebranded Indian T1x, you can expect it to come with a 6.58″ FullHD+ 90Hz LCD, Funtouch OS 12, and a 5,000 mAh battery with 18W charging. The smartphone will have an 8MP selfie shooter on the front and a 50MP primary camera on the rear, joined by a 2MP depth unit. You’ll also get a side-mounted fingerprint reader for biometric authentication.
The vivo T1x in India is offered in Gravity Black and Space Blue colors and has three memory configurations – 4GB/64GB, 4GB/128GB, and 6GB/128GB, currently priced at INR11,999 ($151/€149), INR12,999 ($164/€162), and INR14,999 ($189/€187), respectively. However, the source claims that the iQOO Z6 Lite could be priced INR500 to INR700 lesser than the T1x.
That said, the Z6 Lite is not the only Z series smartphone expected from iQOO since we have also heard about the Z6x and a version of Z6 with 80W charging. Right now, the fastest charging smartphone in the Z6 series is the iQOO Z6 Pro, which supports 66W charging.
