IOQQ, Chinese smartphone maker Vivo’s sub-brand, launched its latest flagship iQOO Pro in Beijing on August 22. Available in both 4G and 5G variants, the premium device features a Snapdragon 855+ chipset, a 4,500mAh battery and 12GB RAM.
As a member of the Vivo iQOO family, the device inherits some features of the previous modules. It sports a 6.41 inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display with a water-drop notch and in-display fingerprint sensor.
IQOO Pro series is also equipped with a triple camera set, including a 48MP AI-driven primary lens, a 13MP wide-angle lens and a 2MP depth sensor. In terms of the front camera, it houses a 12MP dual-pixel camera in the notch for better selfies.
The device is expected to provide a supreme gaming experience. When held horizontally with the Monster Touch button pressed down, the phone enters its gaming mode. Benefiting from the fourth generation Qualcomm AI engine embedded in the Snapdragon 855 Plus processor, the iQOO Pro series can reduce noise levels when gamers are in a group fight with audio on.
