The Vivo T1x is tipped to debut in India soon. The Vivo phone was unveiled in China last year – alongside the regular Vivo T1. While details about the India variant of the Vivo T1x are yet to be revealed, the Chinese model came with features such as triple rear cameras and a punch-hole screen. The Vivo T1x in China also comes with an octa-core MediaTek Dimensity 900 SoC and has a 5,000 mAh battery. The smartphone also has support for 44W fast charging. Earlier this year, the Chinese company also introduced Malaysia’s Vivo T1x 4G variant.
Tipster Paras Guglani tweeted on Wednesday that the Vivo T1x will be launched in India soon. However, the tipster did not mention a specific launch date. It is also unclear whether the Vivo T1x or its 4G model with 5G connectivity will come to India.
In addition to Guglani, PriceBaba reports that the Vivo T1x appeared on the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) website with the model number V2143. The publication speculates that the launch could take place in the second week of July, and the phone could be the Vivo T1x 4G model launched in Malaysia in April.
Vivo T1x price in India (expected)
The Indian price of the Vivo T1x is yet to be revealed. However, the smartphone was launched in China at a starting price of CNY 1,699 (approximately Rs. 20,000) for the 6GB RAM + 128GB storage configuration. The phone also came in an 8GB + 128GB model for CNY 1,799 (approximately Rs. 21,200) and the top-of-the-line 8GB + 256GB option for CNY 1,999 (roughly Rs. 23,500). On the other hand, the 4G variant of the Vivo T1x launched for MYR 649 (approximately Rs. 11,600) for the 4GB + 64GB base model and MYR 799 (roughly Rs. 14,300) for the 8GB + 128GB option.
The Indian price of the Vivo T1x could align with what has been announced in other markets, although there could be some changes due to local taxes.
Vivo T1x Specifications
The specification details of the Vivo, T1x in India, have not yet been revealed. Still, if they were to tie in with the Chinese model, we would get a 6.58-inch full-HD+ (1,080×2,408 pixels) display with a refresh rate of up to 120Hz MediaTek Dimensity 900 SoC, along with up to 8 GB of RAM. The Vivo T1x in China also has a dual rear camera with a 64-megapixel primary sensor, an f/1.79 lens, and a 2-megapixel macro shooter.
For selfies and video chats, the Chinese variant of the Vivo T1x had an 8-megapixel selfie camera sensor on the front.
The Vivo T1x in China came with up to 256GB of onboard storage. The phone featured various connectivity options such as 5G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v5.2, and USB Type-C. It also sported a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Vivo packed the T1x in China with a 5,000mAh battery that supports 44W fast charging. The phone also featured a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
In contrast, the 4G variant of the Vivo T1x debuted in Malaysia with a clear list of specs, including an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 SoC with up to 8GB of RAM, a triple camera setup on the rear with a 50-megapixel primary sensor as two 2-megapixel secondary sensors and 18W fast charging. However, the 4G model featured the same 6.58-inch full-HD+ display, 8-megapixel selfie camera, and 5,000 mAh battery with the 5G option—supplied, which is available in China.
That said, Vivo may launch the T1x in India with some differences. We can expect some teasers in the coming days revealing the main details of the phone through official channels. Until then, taking the reported details with a grain of salt is safe.
