A well-known tipster with Digital Chat Station account name on Weibo revealed earlier this week that iQOO will be launching the iQOO 5 series this month. Today, the company released a confirmation through its Weibo account that it will be debuting the iQOO 5 series on Aug. 17. The iQOO 5 series could end up as the world’s first smartphone with 120W fast charging support.
The new poster released by iQOO states that the iQOO 5 series will go official at 2:30 PM local time in China on Aug. 17. The poster carries texts such as “120W” and “15 mins” which indicates that the iQOO 5 series will be arriving with support for the company’s 120W ultra-fast charging technology that was introduced last month.
At the recently held ChinaJoy tech trade show in China, iQOO showcased a mysterious phone with 120W ultra-fast charging support. The rapid charging technology can fully charge a 4,000mAh battery in just 15 minutes.
iQOO is yet to confirm the number of iQOO 5 smartphones that will be made official on Aug. 17. According to Digital Chat Station, the series includes a cost-effective handset and another model with 120W fast charging support. Probably, the device showcased at the ChinaJoy event could be the iQOO 5 Pro phone. Since the handset was well-covered by a case, its rear design could not be seen.
The device that was seen at the Chinese expo sport a curved AMOLED display with punch-hole design. The display supported a refresh rate of up to 120Hz. There is a possibility that this model could be powered by the new Snapdragon 865 Plus mobile platform. With around two weeks remaining for the iQOO 5 series launch event, the company is expected to release details on its specs and features in the coming days.
