iQOO, a subsidiary of Vivo, has confirmed that it will launch the Z9x 5G smartphone in India on May 16. While the company has yet to reveal its specifications and features, we expect the iQOO Z9x 5G to offer what the China-spec smartphone gets. Overseas, it comes in three storage variants –  8GB+128GB, 8GB+256GB, and 12GB+256GB, priced at 1,149 CNY (roughly Rs 13,300), 1,249 CNY (around Rs 14,450), and 1,449 CNY (roughly Rs 16,760), respectively. Upon arrival in India, the iQOO Z9x will be available for purchase on Amazon. Now, we take a close look at what to expect from this yet-to-launch smartphone.

The India-spec smartphone is expected to sport the same 6.72-inch FullHD+ display as the China-spec model. This will translate to a 1260x2800 pixels resolution, a refresh rate of up to 120Hz, and a peak brightness of 1,000 nits.
