The Z6 is the OEM Vivo's new Snapdragon 765G-powered phone. As such, it comes with dual-mode 5G in addition to 6-8GB of RAM, 44W charging and a headphone jack. It has been released onto the Chinese market via its maker's own website.

Vivo has launched the Z6, making it the latest phone to rock the 5G-by-default Snapdragon 765G SoC. The phone also features a 6.57-inch 20:9 FHD+display, which houses its single 16MP selfie camera. It does not feature an equally in-display fingerprint sensor, however; it is found on the rear panel instead.

The Z6 5G's back view also offers a quad camera array, which consists of 48+8+2+2MP components. They serve as main shooter, a 112-degree ultrawide lens, a macro camera and a depth sensor respectively. These cameras are housed in a modern slim rectangle.

This camera hump is colored to match the gradient white and black colorways of the Z6 5G. It also has a purple/silver gradient SKU, which, frankly, would look better with the same. The new Vivo phone also features a 44-watt (W) version of the OEM's Super FlashCharge system, which juices a 5000mAh battery in this case. The company claims that it takes only 35 minutes for the Z6 to charge up to 70%.

The Vivo Z6 5G is only available in China as yet. Here, it is available on the OEM's own webstore. It starts at 2298 yuan (~US$329) for a base model with 6GB of RAM, or 2598 yuan (~$372) for the top-end 8GB model. Both of these has 128GB in internal-storage terms, feature Android 10 out of the box and a "PC-grade" internal cooling system.
