Basically a Z1 with a different front camera and Android Pie
vivo decided to do a few revisions with the one-year-old Z1 and launched it as the Z3x. We emphasize on few revisions as the Z1 and Z3x are virtually the same phone—save for a different front camera and Android Pie out of the box.
For the former, you are getting a 16-megapixel f/2.0 selfie snapper on the Z3x instead of the Z1’s 25-megapixel module. For the latter, the Z3x has FunTouch 9 and comes with software-based performance enhancement features like Game Turbo and System Turbo.
