Chinese smartphone brand, Vivo, will be launching the Vivo Z1 Pro in the Indian market very soon. At the ongoing PUBG Mobile India Regional finals, it has been confirmed the Vivo Z1 Pro will launch with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 chipset. The phone will also pack a whopping 5000mAh battery and it’ll be the company’s first phone with a punch-hole display to debut in the sub-continent. Also, this is the first Vivo Z series phone to launch in India. As you might be aware of, Vivo is the official title sponsor for PUBG Mobile Open Club championship 2019 and all the players from India (16 teams) are currently playing the game on the Vivo Z1 Pro. In the teaser video which was played during the regional PUBG Mobile finals happening right now in New Delhi, it’s also revealed the Z1 Pro will have a 6.53-inch Full HD+ display, 32MP selfie camera, triple rear cameras, gradient design and a Micro USB port.

Vivo Z1 Pro: Confirmed Specifications and Features

Vivo did not release the Z1 Pro in any market and India will the first one to get it. The Vivo Z1 Pro seems to be a capable mid-range smartphone considering the confirmed specifications. The Z1 Pro will be the first handset in India to launch with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 SoC. With the Z1 Pro, the Chinese company is going after the growing Indian gaming community as the phone will come with Multi Turbo feature which is basically a gaming mode that’s promised to deliver clutter free gaming experience.

As for the confirmed specifications, the Z1 Pro sports a 6.53-inch Full HD+ display on the front with a punch-hole that houses the front-facing camera. Talking about the cameras, we get a 32MP selfie camera and AI-powered triple rear cameras. Unfortunately, Vivo did not reveal the presence of any 48MP camera on the rear side though. The fingerprint scanner is also present on the rear side.

Lastly, the Vivo Z1 Pro will come with a 5000mAh battery and a Micro USB port. Yes, Vivo is going to use a Micro USB port in 2019 and that too on a powerful mid-range smartphone. Also, the phone will have a dedicated hardware key to trigger the Jovi voice assistant.

Vivo Z1 Pro: Expected Pricing in India

As noted, Vivo did not launch the Z1 Pro smartphone in any market till date and India will be the first one to get the phone. Going by the hardware, the Vivo Z1 Pro will likely start retailing at Rs 29,999. Alongside the Z1 Pro, the company may also launch the Vivo Z1 smartphone as well with slightly downgraded hardware. Vivo India already confirmed the Z1 Pro would be exclusive to Flipkart in the sub-continent. If Vivo launches the Z series as an online-only lineup, then we might see aggressive pricing from the company.

Samsung M30, A50 and A70 will be the better models than the chinese crap vivo.

Vivo Z1 pro will be launched below ?20k, so at most it’s competitor will be M30, which is just another crap phone by Samsung…
The only Samsung phone worth buying below?20k is A50…

M30 has sAMOLED display and is far more better than the chinese crap vivo which does not have guarantee of future updates and bug fixes because of the U.S ban. I fully support the U.S in this regard. But Huawei data cards must be allowed in the U.S. This is my stand.

Does your M series supports CA??

You can support whatever thing you want to, I don’t give a flying duck ’bout it…
Also, Vivo will come with far better SD712 which puts Hangsung M30 to shame by a mile….
Also, ’bout updates- My OP5t- got pie update much earlier than most Sammy phones; Moto X4 got Pie update in Nov2018; Redmi Note 5 pro got Pie update though it wasn’t needed since MIUI 10 got all features….
And Hangsung released M series with Oreo, lol…
Go sell this crap to someone else, no wonder American Cronies are worried ’bout Chinese behemoths now…

It got Android Pie update just ten days back. Both M20 and M30. Performance has been good so far.

That’s the point; a phone launched in 2019 should come with Pie update, there’s no point shipping the phone with an older version of Android and then updating it for name’s sake…

Even S9+ didn’t have Pie update when M20/30 were launched. Compared to earlier J7 series this phones have decent performance and great displays. Even though M20 doesnt have AMOLED display Display is really good. Samsung service centres are really good for after sales service. It’s just they should have launched only one variant of M20 and M30 at 10999 and 12999 respectively. At this launch prices they were difficult to sale. Otherwise great products in my opinion. A50 and A70 are great products as well. But if you compare them with Poco F1 and Nokia 7.1 and One Plus 6T,Samsung… Read more »

Nikhil: Samsung A50 “feels” like a Vivo V11. But the problem is, it has been launched at a time when Vivo is at V15.

I just feel Samsung A series and Vivo/Oppos mid-range phones with mid-range chips should not cost more than 25000. They should range between 18000-25000. Once they cross this limit it will affect their sales. This is price conscious market. Why anyone will buy Vivo V15 Pro when Redmi Note 7 Pro is available at 14000 Rupees. I simply doesn’t get it. And MIUI is far better than Vivos funtouch os in my opinion. Same goes with Realme and Oppo. Who will buy Oppo when Realme is giving so much good products at affordable prices with minimal cuts at price tags.… Read more »

Oppo f11 (non pro) is quite VFM IMHO and is built like a tank. I have seen it handled by babies n dropped n stepped on and there’s still no issue. Unlike vivo whose back panel bends and new Samsungs which bend like biscuit.

Realme is a step down from oppo on the build quality. IMHO of course.

I like A7(2018) as well. I have used all the five products of Samsung for more than two weeks. M20/M30/A50/A70/A7(2018). Samsung should stop this nonsense Exynos stuff for Indian market. They should bring Qualcomm chips on their phones at least for midrange(A series only) and flagships. That’s why sales of S8/S9/S10 are below par despite being really good phones. Samsung R and D in Banglore is doing fantastic jobs in my opinion and they should bring entry level powerful chipsets through Exynos to turn things around in India at least. Otherwise Xiaomi and Realme will capture market within no time.… Read more »

LOL. Huawei is banned, Vivo isn’t. Vivo NEVER sold phones in the USA, and hence the effect of any US ban on any Chinese company is ZERO.

Vivo does give a lot of bug fixes and updates too.
