Expected Pricing, Launch Date and Colours
Initially, the Vivo Z1 Pro was considered as a rebranded variant of the Vivo Z5x that was launched in China last month with a Snapdragon 710 SoC. The latest teaser posted on Twitter confirms that the new phone will be powered by the Snapdragon 712 SoC that Qualcomm introduced back in February. Vivo Indian Twitter account confirmed that the new Z1 Pro will be online exclusive and will available only on Flipkart. The landing page on Flipkart shows that the device will be launched as soon as fall of this month.
The device was launched in China at a starting price of 1,998 Yuan for the 4GB/64GB variant. In India, we could also witness similar pricing with the base variant could come at INR 15,000. The other 6GB/64GB and 8GB/128 GB variants could be launched at INR 18,000 and INR 21,000 respectively. The phone would be launched in 2 colours namely Sonic Black and Sonic Blue colour.
Vivo Z1 Pro seems a complete package with impressive specifications at the price point. This will be Vivo’s first smartphone in India to bring punch hole display at budget price segment. Though with great specifications this device has some major cons. The device uses a polycarbonate back and still in 2019 Vivo is using Micro USB port for data transfer and fast charging.

Vivo Z1 Pro cannot shoot at 4K and is limited to 1080p at 30 fps. If you do not mind these cons then Vivo Z1 Pro is a great package. The device will give competition to Samsung Galaxy M40, Realme 3 Pro, Redmi Note 7 Pro. We still do not have an official release date or pricing information. Also, India is a price sensitive market, aggressive pricing will help the company to bring some healthy competition.
