iQOO introduces Z6 Pro and Z6 44W

Yordan, 27 April 2022

Today, the Indian division of IQOO held an event introducing two phones - iQOO Z6 Pro and iQOO Z6 44W. They are entirely new devices with Snapdragon chipsets and AMOLED screens with Schott Xensation protection.

The iQOO Z6 44W is different from the original iQOO Z6 (also sold as vivo T1 5G) and it goes beyond the headlining charging speed. It has an LTE-only Snapdragon 680 chipset with 4GB, 6GB or 8GB RAM and 128GB storage.

The Z6 44W is built around a 6.44” AMOLED screen of Full HD+ resolution. The refresh rate is limited to 60Hz, though.

Around the back is a 50MP main shooter. The other two modules are for macro and depth data and while their resolution isn't confirmed it's more than likely 2MP.

What iQOO also does not say is what the software is running on this Z6 44W. Given that the cheaper iQOO Z6 already has Android 12 and Funtouch 12 out of the box, we assume this is the situation here.

The iQOO Z6 44W comes with an ample 5,000 mAh cell with 44W charging support. It also supports reverse wired charging.

The iQOO Z6 44W is offered in Lumina Blue and Raven Black starting at INR14,499 ($190) for the 4/128GB version and reaching INR16,999 ($222) for the top 8/128GB model.

The iQOO Z6 Pro is advertised as the highest-performing phone in the sub-25K segment in India, based on AnTuTu results. This is achieved thanks to the Snapdragon 778G chipset and 12GB RAM. That's the top version with 256GB storage, but there are also cheaper 6/128GB and 8/128GB models.

The rear camera setup has 64MP main shooter and an 8MP ultra-wide-angle snapper with 117-degree FoV. The third cam is a 2MP macro shooter.

The front is the same as the iQOO Z6 44W - a 6.44” AMOLED with Full HD+ resolution and a waterdrop notch for the selfie camera.

iQOO Z6 Pro packs advanced vapor chamber liquid cooling with 32,993 total surface area to keep the internals cool and safe.

The 4,700 mAh battery inside the Z6 Pro comes with 66W fast-charging capabilities.

The colors are Phantom Dusk and Legion Sky, and prices are INR23,999 ($315/€295) for the 6/128GB version, INR24,999 ($325/€310) for the 8/128GB version, and INR28,999 ($380/€355) for the top 12/256GB edition.

Officials promised us two years of Android updates and three years of security updates once the phones launch during the Amazon Summer Sale, the date of which is yet to be announced.
