After the vivo Z5x launched back in May, the company is now announcing the vanilla version of the smartphone with a better camera, more powerful SoC and instead of a punch-hole camera on the front, the z5 defaults to the waterdrop notch. Oh, and the fingerprint reader is under the screen now.
The vivo z5 is powered by a Snapdragon 712 chipset paired with either 6 or 8GB of RAM and 64/128/256GB of internal storage. The screen measures 6.38-inch in diagonal packing a 1080 x 2340px resolution and since it has an under-display fingerprint scanner, the panel is Super AMOLED.
Camera-wise, the phone is well-equipped with a 48MP main camera with f/1.8 aperture and an 8MP wide-angle lens with f/2.0 aperture. A third 2MP unit for depth sensing keeps them company on the back. Naturally, the phone also offers a dedicated night mode for better low-light stills. The notch houses a 32MP unit again with native pixel-binning support.
A big 4,500 mAh battery provides juice to the hardware, supports 22.5W fast charging and reverse charging for your other devices. The vivo Z5 runs on Funtouch OS 9.1 based on Android 9.0 Pie.
The handset is available in Aurora Illusion, Holographic Illusion and Bamboo Forest Night colors. The 6GB/64GB model asks CNY 1,598 ($230), the 6GB/128GB variant is CNY 1,898 ($275), the 6GB/256GB is 1,998 ($290) and the 8GB/128GB version is priced at CNY 2,298 ($330). As for availability, we don't know when, if at all, will the Z5 make it outside of China.
