Images of a new Vivo smartphone appeared today on the Chinese social network Weibo. The device, which is expected to be the first in the world with the newly announced MediaTek Dimensity 1000+, is expected to be launched by iQOO and be called iQOO Z1. The photos also demonstrate that it should not be long before we see the novelty reach the market.
The leaks show a device quite similar to the recent iQOO Neo 3, with a hole in the upper right corner of the screen to house the camera. Also according to the post, the display should bring 144Hz refresh rate, another feature shared with the older brother. Network users believe that this may be a cheaper version of the gamer smartphone, due to the MediaTek chip.
As the Gizchina website recalls, two new devices from the Chinese manufacturer have received 3C certification, most likely one of which is the iQOO Z1.
MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ was released this week as an enhanced version of Dimensity 1000. The chip includes technology such as 5G UltraSave and HyperEngine2.0, for energy saving with 5G and game optimization, respectively, in addition to support for screens up to 144Hz.
The MediaTek processor is also the only one in the smartphone category capable of decoding videos in AV1 format, an open source codec developed by Google to reduce the size of media files without losing quality, with efficiency superior to other solutions on the market.
It is worth remembering that Vivo may also be preparing its first smartwatch, according to a patent found by Twitter user _the_tech_guy. The device must follow what is seen in competitors, with tachymeter and three side buttons, in addition to a heart rate sensor on the rear.
