Despite being a rebranded version of the Vivo V11i, there is just two difference and others remains identical to each other, the similarities is quite noticeable. The bezel-less mid-range Smartphone is a little bit over-priced.
There is the same spacious and wide 6.3-inch IPS panel, and 1080 x 2280 pixels resolution, with water-drop notch, which only occupies the front-facing selfie snapper. And the same fingerprint sensor scanner sit under the dual camera pixels.
The placement of the fingerprint sensor scanner is quite different from each other, the Vivo V11 comes with an in-display fingerprint sensor scanner, which is seen as high-end but the storage option of the Z3i is quite bigger.
You still get that radiant color combination, powered by the same MediaTek Helio P60 chipset clocked at 2.2GHz Octa-core processor. But the storage options is slightly different, the Z3i is stocked at 6GB of RAM + 128GB of in-built storage.
While the other difference is the selfie shooter, the Vivo V11i 25-megapixel sensor was launched with AI but Vivo is bringing something different to the table, the China-variants Z3i arrived with a 24-megapixel sensor and still supports those AI-features.
Every other specs remains the same, runs on Funtouch OS 4.5 based on Android 8.1 Oreo, fueled by the 3315mAh battery with 18W quick-charging support. Available in Millennium Pink and Aurora Blue color options. Anyways, Vivo Z3i price is at CNY2,398 / $346 / N124,500 in Nigeria currency.
