iQOO has made a very special iQOO Z1 5G edition, worthy for a Pirate King.
Dubbed as the "One Piece Limited Edition," the said phone is already confirmed to go on sale in the Chinese market starting July 22. As it goes for these versions, the aforementioned variant will also be sold in limited quantities.
The iQOO Z1 5G One Piece Limited Edition features a yellow back panel, reminiscent of the popular manga series' theme. There is also the One Piece logo, alongside the bold iQOO branding on its rear section. The One Piece theme is also splashed across the phone's rear camera module.
The same can be said with the handset's retail box, which is adorned with the familiar black and yellow theme. Meanwhile, a nice set of One Piece-styled earphones is also included in the box.
In terms of its key features, the iQOO Z1 5G One Piece Limited Edition is pegged to launch with similar specifications that are found on the regular iQOO Z1.
Announced in May 2020, the iQOO Z1 5G features a 6.57-inch IPS LCD screen, with a resolution of 1,080 x 2,408 pixels. The phone's display is also HDR10-compliant with support for DCI-P3 color gamut and boasts a high 144Hz refresh rate.
On its rear, the smartphone packs a triple-camera setup. The system comprises a 48MP wide camera, which serves as its primary sensor. The main camera is then accompanied by an 8MP ultrawide lens and a 2MP macro module. The phone also features a cutout on its display, which houses a 16MP wide, front-facing camera.
Under the hood, the iQOO Z1 5G is noted for being one of the pioneers of MediaTek's Dimensity 1000+ chipset. The octa-core processor, based on a 7nm architecture, features a Mali-G77 MC9 for its GPU needs. The phone is then coupled with 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB/256GB of UFS 3.1 internal storage options. The device is listed with a 4,500mAh battery, with support for 44W fast wired charging.
The iQOO Z1 5G is also home to a side-mounted fingerprint reader, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, 3.5mm headphone jack, and USB Type-C. The 5G-enabled device runs on a One Piece-themed iQOO UI 1.0, based on the latest Android 10.0.
The iQOO Z1 5G One Piece Limited Edition is only available with an 8GB RAM/128GB configuration. The device is priced at CNY 2,498 (around PHP 17,700) and will be up for pre-orders starting today, July 16, 2020.
