An affordable version of the V9?
While we got the Y95, those residing in China get a new vivo phone with the Z1 Lite. A budget version of the Z1 launched a few months ago, this budget version appears to be a lightweight version of the V9: Looks aside, the Z1 Lite comes with a Snapdragon 626 processor, 4GB RAM, a notched 6.26-inch Full HD+ display, and a 3260mAh battery.
It is different from the V9 as it can be availed with a gradient back and has lower internal storage at 32GB. Its cameras are slightly downgraded as well: 16-megapixel f/2.0 for the front and 16-megapixel f/2.0 and 2-megapixel f/2.4 for the rear.
