At the beginning of this year, iQOO announced the iQOO 7 and iQOO Neo 5 flagship phones in China. Today, the company took to its Weibo platform to confirm that it will be unleashing the iQOO 8 series at 7:30 PM (local time) on Aug. 17 in China.
The iQOO 8 series may include at least two phones such as iQOO 8 and iQOO 8 Pro. Rumors are rife that the iQOO 8 lineup could be one of the first phones to feature the Snapdragon 888+ mobile platform.
Recently, a mysterious iQOO smartphone was kept on display at the ChinaJoy 2021 tech exhibition. Since the device was covered in a special case, it could only reveal its front design. The handset was seen sporting a curved edge display with a centrally aligned punch-hole.
The iQOO 8 series is expected to feature Samsung’s E5 AMOLED display, which is said to produce a resolution of 1400 x 3200 pixels and a 120Hz refresh rate. iQOO’s product manager had recently claimed that it is the best mobile phone screen of this year.
Recently, a Vivo phone with model number V2141A was approved by China’s CMIIT authority. It is likely that this device will be debuting in the Chinese market as the iQOO 8 or iQOO 8 Pro handset.
The leak revealed that the V2141A phone is powered by the Snapdragon 888 Plus that works at 3.0GHz, 12 GB of RAM, 4 GB of extended RAM, Android 11 OS, and internal storage of 256 GB. Its other specifications are under wraps.
