Vivo Z3i With 6.3-Inch Display, 24-Megapixel Front Camera Launched

Vivo-Z3i

Vivo has quietly launched a new smartphone – Vivo Z3i – in China. The mid-range handset is essentially a rebranded variant of the Vivo V11 ₹ 20,299 that had arrived in India in September, or the Vivo V11i that was launched in Thailand the same month. While the design and specifications of the smartphones are quite similar, there are a few changes under the hood. When it comes to the Vivo V11, the Vivo Z3i features identical specifications in terms of display, processor, RAM, and battery, but they differ when we consider the camera and inbuilt storage. The Vivo Z3i appears to be a successor to the Vivo Z1i that was a China-exclusive smartphone. In terms of design, the key features of the smartphone include a waterdrop display notch, bezel-less display, and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

Vivo Z3i price
As mentioned, Vivo has launched Vivo Z3i smartphone only in China and is priced at CNY 2,398 (roughly Rs. 25,600). Notably, the handset comes in Aurora Blue and Millennium Powder colour variants. For comparison, the Vivo V11 was launched in India at Rs. 22,990, but after a recent price cut, it costs Rs. 20,990.

Vivo Z3i specifications
The dual-SIM Vivo Z3i runs Funtouch OS based on Android 8.1 Oreo and comes with Jovi voice assistant. It sports a 6.3-inch full-HD+ (1080×2280) Super AMOLED display with 19:9 aspect ratio and 90.3 percent screen-to-body ratio. The smartphone is powered by the octa-core Mediatek Helio P60 processor paired with 6GB of RAM. All of these features are similar to the Vivo V11 that was launched in India.

In terms of optics, the Vivo Z3i bears a dual camera setup with a 16-megapixel sensor and a 2-megapixel sensor. To recall, the Vivo V11 in India came with a dual rear camera setup with a 16-megapixel sensor and a 5-megapixel sensor. Meanwhile, at the front, the Vivo Z3i features a 24-megapixel camera, which is slightly different than the Vivo V11 that has a 25-megapixel sensor. The Vivo Z3i is equipped with 128GB of inbuilt storage, expandable via microSD card slot (up to 256GB). It is more than the Vivo V11 that had arrived with 64GB of inbuilt storage.

Connectivity options in the Vivo Z3i include 4G VoLTE, GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0. Sensors on board the handset are an ambient light sensor, gyroscope, and proximity sensor. It comes with facial recognition technology and a fingerprint sensor as well. The smartphone is fuelled by a 3,315mAh battery. It measures 155.97×75.63×8.1mm and weighs 163.7 grams.
