iQOO, a sub-brand of Vivo, famous for its gaming-centric smartphones will be introducing its iQOO Z6 series of smartphones in China. The iQOO Z6 series comprises mid-range and premium mid-range categories of smartphones. The brand announced via Weibo, a Chinese microblogging website, that the iQOO Z6 series launch event would be happening on August 25, 2022 in China.
Usually, Chinese manufacturers launch a new device in their home market to test the waters and later introduce it to the global markets. But, iQOO launched its iQOO Z6 Pro, iQOO Z6 5G, and iQOO Z6 44W in India ahead of China. However, some leaks and rumours suggest that the devices will get different internals compared to the Indian models.
Reportedly, the new iQOO Z6 series in China will comprise two models, namely the iQOO Z6 and the iQOO Z6x. The iQOO Z6 is expected to be the more powerful and feature-loaded of the two. iQOO has also shared some images of the device, revealing some key details of its design and camera. Let’s have a look at them below.
