“Vivo’s sub-brand IQ00 is coming to India and the first smartphone could be powered by the 5G-ready Snapdragon 865 SoC”

A little while ago, our senior reporters learned from industry sources that Vivo would bring its IQ00 sub-brand to the Indian soils in March 2020. IQ00 would function as an independent unit in India and will focus on performance. Additionally, the company’s announcement for the device launching in India will also mark the global unveil of IQ00 as a separate entity.

A new report now suggests that IQ00 will be launching its first smartphone in India pretty soon and that it will be the first in India to feature the 5G-enabled Snapdragon 865 chipset.

The latest report comes via India Today Tech, which talks about the imminent launch of an IQ00 flagship phone with Snapdragon 865 SoC. As of now, the source does not have much intel on the specifications of the upcoming IQ00 device  in India (other than the processor, of course), but we can very well expect the device to feature a performance-centric hardware owing to the fact that the IQ00 series of smartphones are targeted towards the gamers out there.

Notably, the IQ00 flagship phone is expected to launch around the same time as the next POCO phone, presumably called POCO F2. The launch ofthe POCO F21ooks imminent as well after Xiaomi announced that it was separating from POCO, allowing the latter to act as an independent brand. As of now, there is not much known about either of the devices. but we are sure to receive further intel on the same in the coming days. 

Separately, the Vivo IQ00 3 and the Vivo IQ00 Neo 3 smartphones are also right around the corner. We could spot both the devices on various certification websites, as well as on the IMEI database. The rumours mill suggests that the Vivo VI 955 smartphone that received the 3C certification a few weeks ago is the Vivo IQ00 3 gaming smartphone. If that turns out to be the case, the device will sport up to 55W of fast charging.
