Just yesterday Vivo announced the new Vivo Z5, which as planned went on presale on August 1st at 00:00, basically last night in China. The smartphone quickly sold out on all the e-commerce platforms including Jingdong, Tmall and Suning. The stores will start processing orders on August 6th and until then it won’t be possible to pre-order the handset. Chinese users will still be able to reserve in the meanwhile though.
The Vivo Z5 is a very interesting mid-ranger coming with a 6.38-inch AMOLED display of 1080 x 2340 pixels full HD+ resolution and 19:5:9 aspect ratio. Due to the AMOLED screen, Vivo was also able to put an fingerprint scanner beneath it and add features like Always-on Display and DC dimming.

Cameras on the Z5 include a primary Sony 48MP shooter with f/1.8 aperture, a 120-degree 8MP ultra-wide sensor with f/2.2 aperture and a 2MP depth sensor with f/2.4 aperture. For selfies we instead have a 32MP camera with f/2.0 aperture. Needless to say the Vivo Z5 adopts Sony’s 4-in-1 pixel binning technology to achieve better results in low light scenarios.
Finally, the Vivo Z5 is fueled by a very large 4500mAh capacity battery with support for 22.5W fast charging. The handset runs FunTouch OS 9 based on Android 9 Pie.
As far as prices are concerned, the Vivo Z5 in the 6GB + 64GB costs 1598 Yuan ($232), 6GB + 128GB for 1898 Yuan ($275) and 6GB + 256GB for 1998 Yuan ($290). Meanwhile the 8GB + 128GB variant goes for 2298 Yuan ($334).
