Highlights
  • iQoo Z6 Lite may be launched at a lower price than Vivo T1x
  • It is said to be a 4G smartphone in the mid-segment range
  • Chinese version of iQoo Z6 seems different from Indian variant

iQoo Z6 Lite may launch in India in September, as per a report. The smartphone could debut as a rebranded version of the Vivo T1x, which was launched in India last month. The specifications of both these smartphones are said to be similar, however, no information on the differences (if any) is available as of now. In a related iQoo Z6 development, two smartphones have been spotted on China's 3C certifications website, suggesting imminent launch of iQoo Z6 and iQoo Z6x smartphones in the country.

The first development comes from a report by 91Mobiles. The publication cites industry sources and “inside information from the supply chain” to claim that the Vivo sub-brand iQoo is working on a smartphone in the iQoo Z6 series that could be called iQoo Z6 Lite. It further says that this particular smartphone may be launched in the second week of September and is likely to be “very similar to the Vivo T1x” that was launched in India last month.

iQoo Z6 Lite price

The 91Mobiles report says that the iQoo Z6 Lite could be priced roughly Rs. 500 to Rs. 700 less than the Vivo T1x. The Vivo T1x price in India starts at Rs. 11,999 for the base 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant and goes up to Rs. 14,999 for the 6GB RAM + 128GB storage model. It is also tipped to launch in different colours than the Vivo T1x.

In an iQoo Z6-related development, two smartphones with model numbers V2202A and V2164KA have been spotted on 3C certification website. As per a post by tipster WHYLAB, these phones could be launched as iQoo Z6 and iQoo Z6x in China. The one with model number V2202A will come with 80W fast charging and the other with V2164KA model number will offer support for 44W fast charging.

When it comes to the internals, the alleged Chinese version of the iQoo Z6 is tipped to come with an LCD display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G SoC. It is to be noted that iQoo earlier launched the iQoo Z6 Pro 5G in India with Snapdragon 778G SoC, along with up to 12GB of LPDDR4X RAM. There was also the iQoo Z6 4G with an LCD display and Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 SoC.

The company has also launched the iQoo Z6 5G in India in March.
