All versions of IQOO smartphone are equipped with Snapdragon 855. In terms of main parameters, iQOO smartphone is consistent with official previously released propaganda posters, including Type-c interface, 4000mAh battery, 44W quick charging, NFC chip, Super HDR camera, 4D game vibration, etc.

Among them, the NFC function is the first launch of Vivo, which currently supports the Beijing-tianjin-hebei connectivity card and Lingnantong, and will support more cities in the future.

It is worth mentioning that Vivo Super FlashCharge was introduced by iQOO smartphone. Officials say the 4000mAh battery can be charged up to 50% in 15 minutes and full in 45 minutes with a 44W flash charge. At the press conference, Zeng kunpeng, product director of iQOO, charged an iQOO phone with a low power rate of 3% to 77% in 24 minutes, demonstrating this feature impressively.

Perfect game experience

IQOO smartphone has a lot of selling point, but the positioning is very clear, a game phone. Therefore, it reflects the perfect game experience from both hardware and software.

In terms of hardware, in addition to Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, in order to play all the performance, the iQOO smartphone adds super liquid-cooled heat dissipation. According to Zeng kunpeng’s introduction, the liquid-cooled heat dissipation of iQOO smartphone is derived from Vivo NEX’s zero-sense cooling technology, but with a further reduction of about 14%, making the game experience stronger.

 And the official hasn’t launch handles or other accessories, while introduced a charging cable called the lightning capsule, which is designed to bend 90 degrees to allow users to quickly charge while playing the game horizontally.The reason for the lack of peripherals is probably that the body of iQOO phone itself has already met the demand for higher control experience for heavy game players.

Monster Touch pressure-sensing buttons are added at both ends of the frame of QOO phone. Long press these two buttons with both hands to enter the game space of special mode. During the game, these two buttons will turn into shooting keys in shooting games or keys for skill release in MOBA games.

As a sub-brand of vivo, iQOO was positioned at the high end at the beginning of its launch. However, from the promotion in the preheating stage, it can be seen that iQOO phone is biased towards mobile games. Still, the starting price of 2,998 RMB is a bit of a surprise

To its credit, iQOO phones inherit many Vivo's strengths. In terms of shooting, It comes with super wide Angle AI three-shot, supporting super night scene and super backlight function. The dynamic range of super backlight SuperHDR is up to 12.3EV.

Feng yufei, vice president of iQOO brand, said that iQOO, with the brand proposition of "being born with powerful performance ", sets sail from China and bases itself on the world, which make people can not help but add to the previous view that the smartphone market will be more and more competitive.
