Vivo’s sub-brand has introduced a new mid-range phone in India, the iQOO Z6 5G.

Since it came from a brand known for gaming and performance phones, the iQOO Z6 5G boasts a high 120Hz refresh rate on its 6.58-inch screen. But since it’s a mid-range device, it’s powered by an apt Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 CPU — the same chip found on other hard-hitters like the Realme 9 Pro and POCO X4 Pro 5G.


iQOO equipped it with a 5-layer liquid cooling system, which should help it stay cool as much as possible even after hours of gaming.

Like a lot of midrange phones, it also comes with virtual RAM expansion technology that the company calls “Extended RAM 2.0”.


The triple camera setup is led by a 50-megapixel main shooter, no ultra-wide. The fingerprint scanner is on the side for a cleaner look. Keeping the lights on is a 5,000mAh battery, which sadly only comes with an 18W charger.
