The report states that Vivo India will be selling the Vivo Z5x exclusively through its online channels in the country. It is expected to be priced around Rs. 20,000. Probably, the smartphone may go official in India by this month.
The hand-on images of the phone shared by the publication show that it will be sporting a glass rear, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and a vertical dual camera setup. It remains to be seen whether the phone will be arriving with Vivo Z5x moniker or it will be simply called on Vivo Z5.
