The last time we approached vivo’s sub-brand, we had left off with the top mid-range Neo 5 Vitality. After almost two months though, it seems it’s already time for the company’s new flagship. In fact, from an official poster we learn about the release of the new iQOO 8, of which we report all the news currently existing.
Update 27/07: from an official teaser we learn how the display of iQOO 8 should be. You can find all the details in the “Design and Display” section.
iQOO 8: everything we know
so far<img width=”1200″ height=”675″ src=”https://gizchina.it/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/iqoo-8-caratteristiche-specifiche-tecniche-prezzo-uscita-2.jpg 1200w, https://gizchina.it/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/iqoo-8-caratteristiche-specifiche-tecniche-prezzo-uscita-2-300×169.jpg 300w, https://gizchina.it/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/iqoo-8-caratteristiche-specifiche-tecniche-prezzo-uscita-2-768×432.jpg 768w, https://gizchina.it/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/iqoo-8-caratteristiche-specifiche-tecniche-prezzo-uscita-2-696×392.jpg 696w, https://gizchina.it/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/iqoo-8-features-technical-specs-price-output-2-1068×601.jpg 1068w, https://gizchina.it/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/iqoo-8-caratteristiche-specifiche-tecniche-prezzo-uscita-2-747×420.jpg 747w, https://gizchina.it/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/iqoo-8-caratteristiche-specifiche-tecniche-prezzo-uscita-2-150×84.jpg 150w” alt=”iqoo 8 features technical specifications price-output 2″ />The
official clue for iQOO 8 starts from a poster that the brand has published for the organization of a gaming tournament with as a prize the presence at the presentation of the new smartphone. The choice of nomenclature is peculiar, since the number 9 was not chosen, but rather the first even number in the series. Probable that it is a bit ‘like the intermediate model just between i
and iQOO 9.
Design and display
Until the last few hours we had no real indications about the display and design of the new flagship iQOO. Well, if on the style there are no images, for the display is definitely different, as it appears (from the summary of the menu of Origin OS) a curved AMOLED panel QHD + resolution 3200 x 1440 pixels, although it is not yet known the diagonal. The punch-hole is then placed at the top center. For the refresh rate, we don’t expect less than 120 Hz.
To confirm at least the curved solution we think the brand itself, which introduces the Real Vision
technology that will present at ChinaJoy, likely land of presentation of the smartphone.
Moving on to the hardware, things get really interesting. According to Digital Chat Station in fact, it seems that iQOO 8 can take advantage of the <a href=”https://gizchina.it/2021/06/snapdragon-888-plus-5g-ufficiale-
features-news/” target=”_blank” rel=”nofollow noopener”>Snapdragon 888+, thus averting rumors that spoke of Snap 888 or Dimensity 1200. And always according to the leaker, could also be the first to use it, surpassing in time Honor Magic 3 Pro. To confirm the presence of the new super SoC we always think the summary screen of the Origin OS, which also shows us how much RAM will be present, that is 12 GB, which is combined with 4 GB in Virtual RAM
and also a storage of 256 GB.
In addition to the chipset, the talk turns to the charging issue. As we learned some time ago, iQOO has launched ultra-rapid charging at 120W on the iQOO 7 and 5/5 Pro. But with iQOO 8, the live sub-brand would be ready to raise the bar even higher, with a smartphone that would be able to charge at 160W. A record that has already been broken by Infinix
, although it was only a concept, so if so it would be the first smartphone to introduce the 160W to the public.
According to leaker Bald Panda
, it looks like the iQOO 8 might be able to do so, although the power is unknown.
last few hours we had not yet spoken of the photo section of this series of smartphones, but from a new leak we learn that iQOO 8 will be equipped with telephoto lens and will be the first of the company to be equipped with it. The Optical Zoom will be 5x, electronically it will be able to go up to 60x. Unfortunately, we do not know details about the sensors and their capacity.
Indiscretions about release and priceBut

‘s rumors though, if this model will be the first with Qualcomm’s flagship, then it’s likely to arrive soon.<img width=”1200″ height=”859″ src=”https://gizchina.it/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/iQoo-8-data-1200×859.jpg 1200w, https://gizchina.it/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/iQoo-8-data-300×215.jpg 300w, https://gizchina.it/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/iQoo-8-data-768×550.jpg 768w, https://gizchina.it/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/iQoo-8-data-696×498.jpg 696w, https://gizchina.it/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/iQoo-8-data-1068×764.jpg 1068w, https://gizchina.it/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/iQoo-8-data-587×420.jpg 587w, https://gizchina.it/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/iQoo-8-data-150×107.jpg 150w, https://gizchina.it/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/iQoo-8-data.jpg 1280w” alt=”iqoo 8 data” />And
