The iQOO Pro is official and rather than one device, Vivo has announced two phones. There is the iQOO Pro with 5G support and there is the iQOO Pro with 4G LTE.
The iQOO Pro has a 6.41-inch Super AMOLED display just like the original Vivo iQOO. There is an in-display fingerprint scanner but with double the scanning area and improved accuracy.
The iQOO Pro is powered by the 7nm Snapdragon 855 Plus clocked at 2.6GHz with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage.
There is a Sony IMX582 48MP primary camera on the back along with a 13MP 120° ultrawide angle camera and a 2.0MP depth sensor. It comes with features like AI Scene 2.0, 2.5CM macro photography and AI Portrait.
Vivo has included a 4500mAh battery with support for Vivo’s 44W Super FlashCharge technology. This allows you to charge the phone up to 50% in 17 minutes, up to 80% in 30 minutes, and up to 100% in 50 minutes.
The phone runs Monster UI based on Android 9 out of the box. There is also the Jovi Assistant with IoT on board too, NFC with Vivo Pay, and the new Turbo Network Acceleration technology that allows you to connect to two Wi-FI connections at the same time (2.4GHz + 5GHz). The iQOO Pro also has an audio jack along with a dedicated audio chip for Hi-Res audio.
The 5G version adopts a 6-antenna design which improves the 5G connectivity of the device. Four of the antennas are at the upper part of the device while two are at the bottom.
