Ivan, 14 September 2022

Right on schedule, the iQOO Z6 Lite is official. It comes in a black Mystic Night and a blue Stellar Green, and is on sale through iQOO's website and Amazon India at a ₹13,999 starting price for the 4/64GB version, and ₹15,499 for the 6/128GB variant.

The lower price of ₹11,499, which Amazon teased before the announcement, can be achieved through an SBI card cashback worth ₹2,500 that also bundles a free adapter (which isn't included in the box). Failing that you have the option to purchase 18W fast charger compatible for ₹399.

The iQOO Z6 Lite is the world's first phone with a Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 chipset. It's a 6nm chip with a maximum clock speed of 2GHz, and up to 18% faster CPU compared to the old Snapdragon 400 series processors. The chip also has built-in 5G connectivity.

The iQOO Z6 Lite includes a 4-component cooling system with a graphite film, thermally-conductive gel, copper foil, and a temperature sensor for better-sustained performance under load.

Upfront, the iQOO Z6 Lite has a 6.58-inch 1080x2408px IPS LCD of 120Hz refresh rate and up to 240Hz sampling rate - a big contention for the segment. There's also a 5,000mAh battery with support for 18W charging.

Not having 4K video recording capability and using Scamsung's Node is unacceptable and this deserves to be trolled. Mediatek's G99 is the direct competitor of Napdragon 4 Gen 1 and it is fabbed using TSMC's superior Node.
