Last month, Vivo’s sub-brand iQOO launched the iQOO Z5. And now, it has followed it with the Z5x. Here, we will be looking at the official specs, key features, expected price, and availability of iQOO Z5x in Nepal.
iQOO Z5x Overview:
Design and Display
iQOO Z5x is built around a 6.58-inch FHD+ display with a waterdrop notch. It’s an LCD panel with a 120Hz refresh and 240Hz touch sampling rate.
At the back, the rectangular camera module is now smaller as it only houses a dual-camera setup. Users get to choose between three colors: Lens Black, Fog Sea White, and Sandstone Orange.
Performance and Memory
Under the hood, the phone packs MediaTek’s Dimensity 900 SoC. There are not that many phones with this chip in the market right now. It features two Cortex-A78 (2.4GHz) and six Cortex-A55 (2GHz) cores. iQOO has also included a five-layer cooling system that it says keeps the core cooler by 10° Celcius.
In terms of memory, users can choose between 6GB and 8GB RAM variants. The former comes with 128GB internal storage, whereas you can pair the latter with either 128GB or 256GB of internal storage.

As mentioned earlier, the phone has a dual-camera setup at the back. The primary sensor has been downgraded from 64MP to 50MP lens. Accompanying it is a 2MP macro shooter. iQOO has dropped the 8MP ultrawide here that’s available on the standard iQOO Z5. Upfront, there is an 8MP f/2.0 selfie shooter.
Rest of the specs
Fueling the phone is a 5,000mAh battery that supports 44W fast charging. A compatible charger is included in the box, which can get the device from 0 to 58% in just 30 minutes. iQOO has included a side-mounted fingerprint scanner for biometrics.
It boots on OriginOS based on Android 11. However, if the Z5x were to launch globally, we expect it to arrive with Funtouch OS 11 instead.
