Following several leaks and teasers, vivo has finally launched a mid-range smartphone which marks a shift from the notch and pop-up designs found inmost of its recent smartphones. Welcome the vivo Z5x – the latest mid-ranger and the first ever phone from the company to adopt the punch-hole design.

Asides its Punch-hole design, it is a pure mid-range device packed with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 710 processor, an edge-to-edge screen, and a triple primary camera setup at the rear.

The vivo Z5x  is fronted by a 6.53-inch full HD+ display with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 and a screen-to-body ratio of 90.77 percent. The display  runs from edge to edge with a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera, and of course reasonably thin bezels all around.

Around the back, you will find a a glossy finish poly-carbonate panel fitted with a triple camera setup consisting of a 16MP primary sensor with f/1.78 aperture, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle sensor with f/2.2 aperture, and a 2MP depth sensor with f/2.4 aperture, while a familiar 16MP camera with f/2.0 aperture is fitted into the punch-hole for selfies. Also visible at the rear panel is a fingerprint sensor, so this device does not come with the in-display fingerprint option.

While the vivo Z3x has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 at the helm, the Z5x opted for the 10nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC featuring the Kryo 360 CPU,  Adreno 616 GPU, and what is mor, the VIVO Z5X  gets performance enhancing features like Multi Turbo, AI Turbo, Cooling Turbo, Game Turbo and more to deliver an immersive gaming experience. You can pick up the device in  4GB + 64GB, 6GB + 64GB, 6GB + 128GB, and 8GB + 128GB options.
