As mentioned earlier, iQoo entered India last month as a separate brand from Vivo. The company had said it will be the first one in India to launch a phone with Snapdragon 865 processor, Qualcomm's latest flagship chipset. The processor brings 5G capabilities, though iQoo plans to launch a 4G variant of the phone as well. It is worth noting that 5G is not available in India, for now.

 

iQoo's India Marketing Director Gagan Arora had confirmed the phone will focus on premium 'user experience' and come with a 'unique' gaming feature, but shied away from calling it a 'gaming smartphone'. He also promised "best in class" battery technology which could be Vivo's 'Dual Engine' fast charging tech at the least or the '120W Super Flash Fast Charging' technology.
