Vivo Launches iQOO Pro Gaming Phone with 5G Capability


In a typical mid-year refresh cycle, Vivo’s iQOO Pro comes with upgraded internals while maintaining the same build and design. Available in LeMans Blue, Racing Black or Phantom Blue colors, it’s still a 6.41″ FHD+ AMOLED device boasting 92% screen-to-body ratio.

Compared to the non-pro iQOO that was launched earlier this year, the pro model comes with a bigger battery at 4500mAh. However, it still retains a very fast 44W charging rate. Spec-wise, the chipset is now of Snapdragon 855+. As for the cameras, the notch still houses a 12MP selfie sensor while the main camera features three sensors — 48MP + 13MP ultra-wide + 2MP depth.

Vivo is also introducing its newest UI for gaming smartphones. From Funtouch 9 OS, iQOO Pro now uses Monster UI. Last but not least is the addition of a 5G modem. All variants will start selling in China on August 29. It’s also unlikely for the devices to be released globally.
