Vivo Z1 Youth

Pre-booking for the Vivo Z1 Youth Edition has now started in Vivo‘s official website in China. Z1 Youth Edition is the latest entry level offering from the brand, and it is a downgraded version of the previously launched Z1. The device comes with a premium design having a notch, dual rear cameras, and a fingerprint sensor coupled with face unlock for security.

 

The device is packed with a 6.26-inch full-HD+ display of 19:9 ratio, with a screen to body ratio of 90%. The device is powered by the Snapdragon 626 chipset, and is coupled with 4GB of RAM along with 32GB of internal storage. Its higher version, Z1, is having the powerful Snapdragon 660 processor, along with 4GB and 64GB of RAM and internal storage, respectively.

In the camera department, the device is having a vertical dual camera setup at the back with a 16MP primary and 2MP secondary shooter, with LED flash. The dual camera setup of Z1 consisted of 13MP+2MP cameras, which means Z1 Youth Edition seems to be better than the cameras of Z1 on paper. The front camera is a 16MP shooter, which is the same as the Z1. The physical fingerprint scanner is housed at the back with the Vivo branding below it.
