It started with the rumour, and then came the leak, and finally the Vivo iQOO is officially announced. It is a gaming smartphone with monster specs and features, which Makes it the most powerful vivo phone ever made. The phone comes with Snapdragon 855 chipset, triple camera and 44W fast-charging. Read on and see more details about the recently announced Vivo iQOO.
Vivo iQOO Features
The Vivo iQOO official slogan is “Monster Inside”, and the company did its best to give the phone some monster specs. It comes with a whooping 12GB RAM, while the internal storage is as high as 256GB. The display has a 6.41 inch OLED panel with a waterdrop notch and UD fingerprint scanner.
The Vivo iQOO has a 44W fast-charging support, which simply means you can charge the 4000mAh battery up to 50% in 15 minutes, 85% in 30 minutes, and a 100% charge in just 45 minutes.
NOTE: the cheapest variant (6GB RAM + 128GB storage) of the Vivo iQOO will miss this feature and it will come with just 22.5W charging support.
Since this new Vivo phone is targeted at mobile gamers, it comes with a “super liquid cooling” which brings a vapor chamber. There are also some other features to boost performance, such as AI Turbo, Center Turbo, Net Turbo, Cooling Turbo, and Game Turbo, neatly wrapped in one service called Multi-Turbo. These features will boost app startup by 30%, frame rate with over 70%, and automatic switch between Wi-Fi and 4G for non-stop gaming.
The Vivo iQOO also has something good for smartphone photographers. It has a three-camera setup on its back – a 13MP wide-angle lens and Sony IMX263 sensor, a main 12MP shooter with Vivo’s own dual-pixel technology and a 2MP depth sensor.
