In a bid to take on rivals like Samsung and Xiaomi, Vivo is working to launch new Z-series smartphones in India soon.
The line-up, expected to start with the Z5x, will include low-cost feature-rich handsets that will be sold via online channels only.
To recall, Vivo Z5x was recently released in China and it offers a punch-hole design and triple rear-cameras.
