Vivo will be holding a launch event on August 22nd in China, where they will officially announce the iQOO Pro 5G. This device will be the company’s first-ever 5G smartphone which will arrive with powerful internals under the hood as revealed by it’s TENAA listing.
Earlier this week, there have been reports that the iQOO Pro 5G could be the cheapest 5G smartphone after it made its debut. This seems to be the case after a promotional banner with the device’s pricing was reportedly spotted outside one of Vivo’s official store in China. Apparently, it comes with a price tag of just 4,498 Yuan (US$638) for those who pre-orders the device. Even if you did not pre-order the device, we reckon that the pricing will differ by a mere 100 – 200 Yuan.
Compared to the other 5G smartphones in the current market, it is obvious that the iQOO Pro 5G is indeed the cheapest. Let’s take the recently announced ZTE Axon 10 Pro 5G and Huawei Mate 20 X 5G as an example – both devices come with a staggering price tag of 4,999 Yuan (US$709) and 6,199 Yuan (US$900) respectively.
