vivoâ€™s iQOO lineup is fast expanding as it has introduced a latest addition called vivo iQOO U1x. It comes with an ultra-affordable price tag and big battery as its key selling points.
The iQOO U1x is powered by a Snapdragon 662 chipset, coupled with 4GB or 6GB of RAM. Storage is either 64GB or 128GB.
On the front sits a 6.51-inch LCD with 720p resolution and a waterdrop notch for the 8MP camera. The triple shooter on the back brings a 13MP main unit alongside a 2MP depth sensor and 2MP macro cam.
Inside there is a 5,000 mAh battery that charges over the dated microUSB port. There’s no support for fast-charging of any sort.
Since the phone is launched initially in China, it will come with no Google services but will have Jovi AI assistant out of the box, as well as iQOO UI, based on Android 10.
