Inside there is a 5,000 mAh battery that charges over the dated microUSB port. There's no support for fast-charging of any sort.

Since the phone is launched initially in China, it will come with no Google services but will have Jovi AI assistant out of the box, as well as iQOO UI, based on Android 10.

Launching in Silver or Black colors, the price of the vivo iQOO U1x starts from CNY899 for the 4/64GB memory option, which translates to about $135.

Pretty much every phone is advertising there phones with having some game running on the screen. Even the most low end hardware phones have these advertising pics for like mtk quad core phones with 1-2GB ram :D 135 euro for sd662 isnt cheap tbh...

No one told you that device is intended for gaming except the IQOO branding.....But still HD+ screen with SD662 should give above avg performance in FPS titles
