Vivo T1 5G has Snapdragon 695, no ultrawide & 120Hz LCD

The specs sheet of the phone is now out

Vivo will launch a new budget 5G phone in India soon, and it is named the Vivo T1 5G. This is a sub-Rs 20,000 phone that is coming with the Snapdragon 695 5G SOC, and the launch is taking place on the 9th of February. But, ahead of the official launch, we now have the full spec sheet of the phone, thanks to @heyitsyogesh. These leaked specifications indicate that even the T1 5G is just another 5G phone with cost-cutting here and there to keep the price low.

First of all, as we already know, there is the Snapdragon 695 chip under the hood that powers the Moto G71, and even that phone is priced under 20K as well. The upcoming Realme 9 Pro is also coming with the same SOC. Apart from the chip, Vivo T1 5G has 4/6/8GB LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB UFS 2.2 storage. There is a 5,000mAh battery along with 18W fast charging.

On the front, there is a 6.58-inch 120Hz LCD, not an AMOLED. Also, as we have seen in the official teasers, there is a waterdrop notch on the front instead of a hole punch. The triple camera module on the back has a main 50MP sensor paired with two 2MP sensors. So, there is no ultrawide on this phone, which is surprising. For selfies, you get a 16MP camera on the front. The fingerprint scanner is present on the side, and there is a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Well, if all these specs sound familiar, then let us tell you that these are almost the same specs as for the iQOO U5 in China. The only difference is the extra 2MP sensor on the Vivo T1 5G on the back. Except that, nothing is different. There is the same chip, the same display, the same battery, the same charging speed, and also the same design. So, it is safe to say that the Vivo T1 5G for the Indian market is just a rebadged iQOO U5.

With these specifications, it would be better to price this phone around Rs 15,000 otherwise, the Moto G71, and the upcoming Realme 9 Pro are easily better choices over the Vivo T1.  But since Vivo claims the T1 5G to have the fastest chip in its segment, that means it will be priced lower than what the Moto G71 currently costs.
