Vivo is another of the brands that have signed up to a trend that we are experiencing in recent times. To have a secondary brand that operates under its umbrella but that presumes its own personality. Honor does it with regard to Huawei, OnePlus is the shadow of Oppo and now Vivo does the same with iQOO.
iQOO is a second line of devices from the Chinese manufacturer. A second brand that is almost without waiting since it was announced, has staged its first phone, a device that comes under the name of Vivo iQOO, being focused on the gaming world.
The market niche addressed by the Vivo IQOO is the same one in which the Razer Phone, the Xiaomi Black Shark or the ASUS Rog Phone debuted. And for this and as expected, it should have a series of features that allow you to take advantage of the use of all your resources in the games from your mobile.
Starting with the design, the Vivo iQOO will have a screen with a notch in the shape of a drop (on it we find the speaker), which means that it does not have frames. It will have a diagonal of 6.41 inches built on an AMOLED panel with FHD+ resolution that will also offer support for images with HDR (High Dynamic Range). In addition, it points to the fashion of the fingerprint reader under the screen, almost necessary in the presence of frames in the front.
The phone has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC with an architecture based on 7 nm. It is the SoC that occupies the high range at this time and as in other models is focused on the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI). It also has an external X50 modem, used by most devices compatible with the fifth generation of mobile networks.
The processor is complemented by a specific GPU, a base RAM of 6 GB (we already find more power than in most of the PC’s on the market) and 128 GB of internal storage that will also be expandable through a microSD. In addition, there will be a version of 8 GB and 128 GB, 8 GB and 256 GB and a cap of 12 GB and 256 GB of RAM.
So much power must have a good power source and in this sense, the Vivo IQOO integrates a 4,000 mAh battery, which if fall short, can always pull the 44W fast charge offered through the USB Type-C port. It has a Super FlashCharge technology that allows a 50% load in just 16 minutes, or 100% load in 46 minutes.
The photographic section can not miss the opportunity to use multiple cameras. The main camera consists of 13, 12 and 2-megapixel lenses, with a 12-megapixel sensor on the front.
The model iQOO 5G will have a data transfer speed between 5 and 10 times higher than 4G, which will have a greater capacity for streaming services and applications of augmented reality (AR). And in fact, the company will release AR glasses with two screens having a 720p resolution that can connect to the phone without the need for a computer.
The design of the phone includes a total of eight antennas – four for 5G and two for 4G together with Bluetooth and WiFi – which was a real challenge for its creators, who had to distribute them in a small space so that interference does not occur.
