iVoomi Z1: Features and Specifications
Considering the asking price of Rs 6,999, the iVoomi Z1 sports mediocre specifications, unlike the Realme C1 or the Xiaomi Redmi 6. The phone rocks a 5.67-inch HD+ display on the front with a 19:9 aspect ratio. For those who’re interested, there’s a notch on top of the display, and it’s worth noting the iVoomi Z1 is one of the cheapest smartphones to offer a notched display. Under the hood, the smartphone has the quad-core MediaTek MTK 6739W chipset with all the four cores clocked at 1.3GHz.
The chipset comes paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, which can be expanded via a microSD card slot up to 128GB. Connectivity options on this device include Dual 4G, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS and Micro USB.
As for the cameras, we get a 13MP shooter on the back side with a 5P lens, IMX135 sensor and a soft LED flash. A 5MP selfie shooter is present on the front with 1.12um pixels and 4P lens. The phone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo-based SmartMe OS 3.0 and also has a fingerprint scanner placed on the rear side.
