IQOO has officially announced its upcoming gaming handset lineup called the IQOO 5.
The company has released the IQOO 5 and the IQOO 5 Pro in China. The new series comes as an IQOO’s flagship offering packing features like a powerful processor and a 120Hz FHD+ display. The smartphone is said to arrive with the best specs and features so far. Here is what you need to know about the IQOO 3’s successor.
IQOO 5 and IQOO 5 Pro Specs and Features Unveiled
IQOO 5 and IQOO 5 Pro have a similar set of hardware. The smartphones flaunt a 6.56-inch AMOLED display with an FHD+ resolution of 1080×2376 pixels. The display has a 92.6 % screen-to-body ratio, HDR 10 certification, a fingerprint scanner (in-display), and a 100 % DCI-P3 color gamut.
Probably the best thing so far at both smartphones is the processor, because they’ll pack Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 SoC paired with Adeno 650 GPU, 12GB LPDDR5 RAM, and 256GB UFS 3.1 storage capacity. Unfortunately, the devices won’t come with an external microSD card support.
Coming to photography skills, the standard IQOO 5 will sport a triple-lens module comprising 50MP main sensor, a 13MP ultra-wide-angle sensor, and a 13MP telephoto sensor with 20x zoom. For selfies, the device will ship with a 16MP camera packed inside the waterdrop notch.
As for the IQOO 5 Pro, it comes with triple-lens camera setup, too, and the primary and ultra-wide-angle sensors are the same. It packs, however, an 8MP periscope sensor that offers 60x digital zoom and 5x optical zoom.
Furthermore, the IQOO 5 series is powered by a 4,500mAh battery with support for 55W fast charging.
