Vivo is preparing an updated version of their IQOO gaming smartphone in order to properly compete with all the Snapdragon 855+ phones launched in the past few days. We had the new ASUS ROG, the Black Shark 2 Pro and Red Magic also prepares it’s updated version, so it was only natural for Vivo to have one as well. But this new phone won’t just have the newer Snapdragon 855+ chipset, but will also include the new 5G modem.
Today, thanks to a leak from Xiaomishka, the price was revealed, and it is lower than everyone was expecting. The new Vivo IQOO Pro will have the Snapdragon 855+ CPU, 8GB OF RAM, 128GB of UFS3.0 internal storage and 5G connectivity. No words on the screen (maybe it will include a high refresh rate AMOLED display), but for the 4498 Yuan (which is approximately $640) it is not a good device either way. No words on the release date yet.
