Under the hood, the iQOO Z6 sports a Snapdragon 778G Plus processor. Also, it uses the full-blood version UFS3.1 storage and full-blood version LPDDR5 (6400Mbps) memory. The 4500mAh battery supports 80W fast charging. The phone can charge to 50% in 10 minutes and to 100% in 30 minutes. It boasts a six-layer ice-sealed liquid cooling system. It is available in three colors: Black, Orange, and Blue.
On the front, it carries a 6.64-inch 2388×1080 LCD mid-hole screen. The latter supports a 120Hz refresh rate (30/45/48/50/60/90/120Hz seven-speed variable speed), 240Hz touch sampling rate, maximum brightness of 480 nits, 100% P3 color gamut, global DC dimming, and has passed the TÜV Rheinland full care 2.0 certification.
In terms of imaging, the machine uses an 8MP (Samsung S5K4H7) sensor on the front, a 64MP main camera (Samsung S5KGW3, OIS) + 2MP macro (Gecoway GC02M1) + 2MP depth of field (Howey OV02B10) on the rear. iQOO is the first to use the latter.
