The iQOO Z6 series currently includes three smartphones in India – Z6, Z6 44W, and Z6 Pro. A new media report claims these will be joined by a Lite model in the second week of next month in the Asian country.
The source claims that the iQOO Z6 Lite will be a 4G smartphone and will be a version of the vivo T1x, which is powered by the Snapdragon 680 SoC. Note that we are referring to the dual camera model available in India since there’s also a T1x with triple rear cameras. And then there’s the Chinese T1x, powered by the Dimensity 900 chip. It comes with a 64MP camera and supports 5G networks. You can head this way to check the detailed specs of all T1x variants.

If the iQOO Z6 Lite is a rebranded Indian T1x, you can expect it to come with a 6.58″ FullHD+ 90Hz LCD, Funtouch OS 12, and a 5,000 mAh battery with 18W charging. The smartphone will have an 8MP selfie shooter on the front and a 50MP primary camera on the rear, joined by a 2MP depth unit. You’ll also get a side-mounted fingerprint reader for biometric authentication.
The vivo T1x in India is offered in Gravity Black and Space Blue colors and has three memory configurations – 4GB/64GB, 4GB/128GB, and 6GB/128GB, currently priced at INR11,999 ($151/€149), INR12,999 ($164/€162), and INR14,999 ($189/€187), respectively. However, the source claims that the iQOO Z6 Lite could be priced INR500 to INR700 lesser than the T1x.
That said, the Z6 Lite is not the only Z series smartphone expected from iQOO since we have also heard about the Z6x and a version of Z6 with 80W charging. Right now, the fastest charging smartphone in the Z6 series is the iQOO Z6 Pro, which supports 66W charging. You can read our iQOO Z6 Pro hands-on to learn more about it.
