While the Vivo U3 comes in two variants with 4GB and 6GB RAM, the Vivo Z5i comes only in a single variant with a higher 8GB RAM, which makes it better. Also, it comes with a similar 6.53-inch FHD+ display, a gradient rear design, and support for 18W Dual Engine fast charging support.

Vivo Z5i Expected Price In India

Vivo Z5i has been launched for 1798 yuan (approx. Rs. 18,300) for the single variant with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage space. The device has been launched in two colors - Onyx Black and Jade Blue. While it is already available for purchase in China, there is no word regarding the global release of this device.

Notably, the relatively low-specced Vivo U3 is priced starting from 999 in China (approx. Rs. 10,000) and was launched in India as the Vivo U20 priced starting from Rs. 10,990.

Vivo Z5i Specifications

Detailing on its specifications, the Vivo Z5i bestows a 6.53-inch FHD+ TFT LTPS display with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels, an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 and a screen-to-body ratio of 90.3%. Under its hood, this smartphone makes use of an octa-core Snapdragon 675 SoC teamed up with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage space.

For imaging, the Vivo smartphone makes use of a triple-camera system with a 16MP primary sensor with f/1.78 aperture, an 8MP secondary lens with f/2.2 aperture, and a 2MP tertiary lens with f/2.4 macro lens. The selfie camera is a 16MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture.


Vivo Z5i runs Android 9 Pie topped with the company's FuntouchOS 9.2 and comes with connectivity features such as 4G LTE, GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. The smartphone gets the power from a 5000mAh battery with support for 18W Dual Engine fast charging technology.

What We Think

Well, there is no word regarding the global release of the Vivo Z5i. If it is launched in India, then it could be priced above the Vivo U20 as there is an upgraded RAM. However, we are yet to get an official confirmation from Vivo regarding the same. Moreover, it will face a tough challenge from rivals such as Redmi and Realme that dominate the affordable smartphone market.
