According to the leak, the price of this particular variant will be CNY2,498 ($350/€325). We’re yet to see how the Dimensity 1000+ performs in real life, but at least on paper, it’s a powerful chipset. Apart from the brand new SoC, the handset will also come with an LCD display with a 144Hz refresh rate and 44W fast-charging. This will be one of the best value for money phones if you want to try 5G. Thanks to a couple of leaked images we also know that it will sport a punch-hole camera in the top-left corner.
More details should keep popping out in the coming days. After all, we’re just six days away from the release. The company already started gathering reservations for the phone on its website and some major online retailers in China. People who sign will be among the first to learn when the iQOO Z1 launches and will also be able to purchase it during the first flash sale.
