Vivo will launch the Vivo Z1 Pro phone in India on July 3. Not only will the Z1 Pro be Vivo’s first punch-hole display smartphone in India, it will also be very aggressively priced – we expect Vivo to launch the Z1 Pro in India at a price of under Rs 20,000. Chances are the Vivo Z1 Pro could be the cheapest phone with punch-hole selfie camera in India undercutting the recently launched Samsung Galaxy M40 with multiple variants – the Galaxy M40, for your reference, has been launched at Rs 19,990 in India.  

Speaking of specs, the Vivo Z1 Pro comes with a 6.53-inch 1080p+ IPS LCD display with 1080 x 2340-pixel resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio thanks to its punch-hole style notch. The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 processor paired with up to 6GB RAM and up to 128GB storage. Broadly speaking, the Vivo Z1 Pro will be available in three configurations - 4GB/64GB, 6GB/64GB and 6GB/128GB. The dual SIM phone runs Android Pie-based Funtouch OS 9. The Vivo Z1 Pro further packs a massive 5,000mAh battery and supports 18W fast charging. 

On to the cameras, the Vivo Z1 Pro comes with triple rear cameras – a 16MP main camera with f/1.78 aperture, an 8MP wide-angle camera with f/2.2 aperture and another 2MP sensor for portrait photography. On the front, the Z1 Pro comes with a 32MP camera. 

In terms of design, even though the Vivo Z1 Pro is made entirely out of plastic, Vivo is using a glossy gradient finish on this one so it looks more like glass from afar – the phone will be available in two colours, Sonic Black and Sonic Blue. Elsewhere, the Vivo Z1 Pro has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and micro-USB port for charging and data-syncing.
