As widely anticipated in recent days, IQOO – Vivo’s new sub-brand launched on the market less than a month ago – announced its first smartphone and we have the opportunity to know and understand what “cut” is going to give the parent company to the newborn brand.
The smartphone is called just like the brand, so simply IQOO, and winks at the gamers with high-end specifications and high performance: in addition to Android version 9 Pie, in the technical data of the device we find a 6.4 AMOLED display ” With integrated fingerprint sensor, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 mobile platform, up to 12GB of RAM and support for LTE bands for the European market. You should certainly not forget the 4000mAh battery with Vivo Super FlashCharge 44W (not the 6GB version) that allows you to recharge the battery to 85% in just 30 minutes and the triple rear camera to 12 + 13 + 2MP.
On the aesthetic side, IQOO has a 3D glass shell that offers pleasant reflections depending on the ambient light and, above all, a thin LED rear strip that runs vertically and lights up during the gaming sessions. There are two colours available: blue and Monster.
Gaming, it was said: to underline the “imprinting”, Vivo – pardon, IQOO – has integrated the Monster Touch buttons on the side shell to allow players to better grip the phone without covering the screen with their fingers. In addition, the smartphone has an internal cooling system that, according to the company, cools 14 times more than the system seen on the first NEX.
