Right on schedule, the iQOO Z6 Lite is official. It comes in a black Mystic Night and a blue Stellar Green, and is on sale through iQOO’s website and Amazon India at a ₹13,999 starting price for the 4/64GB version, and ₹15,499 for the 6/128GB variant.
The lower price of ₹11,499, which Amazon teased before the announcement, can be achieved through an SBI card cashback worth ₹2,500 that also bundles a free adapter (which isn’t included in the box). Failing that you have the option to purchase 18W fast charger compatible for ₹399.
The iQOO Z6 Lite is the world’s first phone with a Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 chipset. It’s a 6nm chip with a maximum clock speed of 2GHz, and up to 18% faster GPU compared to the old Snapdragon 400 series processors. The chip also has built-in 5G connectivity.
The iQOO Z6 Lite includes a 4-component cooling system with a graphite film, thermally-conductive gel, copper foil, and a temperature sensor for better-sustained performance under load.
Upfront, the iQOO Z6 Lite has a 6.58-inch 1080x2408px IPS LCD of 120Hz refresh rate and up to 240Hz sampling rate – a big contention for the segment. There’s also a 5,000mAh battery with support for 18W charging.
The iQOO Z6 Lite has a 50MP main camera with eye autofocus and a 2MP macro sensor. On the front, there’s an 8MP selfie camera.
