The Indian division of iQOO recently held an event introducing two phones – iQOO Z6 Pro and iQOO Z6 44W. They are entirely new devices with Snapdragon chipsets and AMOLED screens with Schott Xensation protection.

iQOO Z6 44W launched

The iQOO Z6 44W is different from the original iQOO Z6 (also sold as vivo T1 5G) and it goes beyond the headlining charging speed. It has an LTE-only Snapdragon 680 chipset with 4GB, 6GB or 8GB RAM and 128GB storage.

The Z6 44W is built around a 6.44” AMOLED screen of Full HD+ resolution. The refresh rate is limited to 60Hz, though.

Around the back is a 50MP main shooter. The other two modules are for macro and depth data and while their resolution isn’t confirmed it’s more than likely 2MP.

What iQOO also does not say is what the software is running on this Z6 44W. Given that the cheaper iQOO Z6 already has Android 12 and Funtouch 12 out of the box, we assume this is the situation here.

The iQOO Z6 44W comes with an ample 5,000 mAh cell with 44W charging support. It also supports reverse wired charging.
