The Vivo Z1 Pro is a beast of a budget smartphone if it is priced right from the company. It has some great looks with a hole-punch design and a gradient back, triple cameras, 5,000mAh battery, and 18W fast charge along with some game-centric features. It’s also going to be one of the few handsets with the Snapdragon 712 SoC which is a slightly higher clocked version of the Snapdragon 710 SoC.
