iQOO Z6 has finally made its way to the Indian market. It is the latest mid-range offering by iQOO which if we recall correctly, is the sub-brand by Vivo. The phone succeeds last year’s iQOO Z5 and brings some upgrades as well. In this post, we will dig into the specs, features, availability, and expected price of iQOO Z6 in Nepal.
iQOO Z6 Overview
Display and Design
Beginning with the design, iQOO Z6 flaunts a 6.58-inch IPS LCD panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. It boasts Full HD resolution alongside a DCI-P3 wide color coverage. Above the screen, there is a punch-hole cutout that holds the front-facing camera. It has a 401-pixel density and 1080×2408-pixel capacity.
As per the design, the body weighs 185 grams and measures 8.3mm in thickness. The front is made up of glass whereas the back and the frame are plastic made. The handset has a flat-edge design with curved edges alongside a rectangular camera bump on the rear panel. It is available in two color options – Dynamo Black and Chromatic Blue.
Performance and Memory
Under the hood, the device gets its power from Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 chipset based on a 6nm fabrication process. This was previously seen on Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G. It integrates an octa-core (2×2.2 GHz Kryo 660 Gold & 6×1.7 GHz Kryo 660 Silver) CPU coupled with Adreno 619 graphics processor. iQOO claims to have a score of 410563 points in the AnTuTu score. Over to the software front, the phone boots on Android 12 on top of Funtouch 12.
There is a 5-layered liquid cooling setup with a 1445 sq. mm vapor chamber on the handset that reduces the core CPU temperature by 10°C even during intensive tasks. There are three memory configurations available for the model – 4/128GB, 6/128GB, and 8/128GB of UFS 2.1. You can also expand the internal storage with the help of a microSD card slot it shares with a SIM slot.
Camera and Audio
Moving on to the optics, there is a triple camera setup on the rectangular module at the rear panel of the phone. It is led by a 50MP primary lens with an f/1.8 aperture and PDAF support. Others are two 2MP sensors for macro and portrait shots respectively. The module also holds a Dual-LED flash for better night shots.
Upfront, there is a 16MP selfie snapper with an f/2.0 aperture. Both front and back cameras can record up to 1080p videos at 30 frames per second. For audio, there is a loudspeaker system accompanied by a 3.5mm headphone jack for music and calls.
Rest of the specs
Fueling the iQOO Z6 is a non-removable Li-Po 5,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging support. Likewise, there is a side-mounted fingerprint scanner handling the biometrics. Other sensors include an accelerometer, gyro, proximity, and compass.
Moreover, there is Wi-Fi 802.11, Bluetooth 5.1, GPS (A-GPS, GLONASS), and USB Type-C 2.0 for connectivity options.
