- The Vivo Z6 5G joins the list of affordable 5G smartphones
- The phone takes on the Realme X50 5G, Oppo Reno 3 and Redmi K30 5G
- The Vivo Z6 5G may never reach the Indian market
Vivo has finally joined the list of manufacturers with affordable 5G smartphones. After Xiaomi, Realme and Oppo, Vivo now has a smartphone with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset. Dubbed as the Vivo Z6 5G, the smartphone just went official in India with impressive mid-range specifications. Key specifications of the Vivo Z6 5G include 44W fast charging, 5000mAh battery and 48MP quad-camera setup on the back. Since the Snapdragon 765G is limited to China for now, we may not see the Vivo Z6 5G making it to the Indian market anytime soon. Similar to Oppo Reno 3 Pro which is arriving with 4G specifications to India, we may see Vivo also bringing the Vivo Z6 with different specs to the country since it saw massive success with the Vivo Z1 Pro and Vivo Z1x smartphones.
