Recently Vivo had announced that they will be launching a new smartphone sub-brand which will be called iQOO. They did not reveal the pronunciation, though. Although we guess it will be pronounced as “iQ” with the double-O being silent. As we break our collective heads in deciphering what the pronunciation could be, the Chinese handset maker has already gone ahead and revealed the first set of iQOO smartphone images on the internet. According to the set of Vivo iQOO images posted on the Chinese social media website Weibo, the iQOO device will be a foldable smartphone.
The renders which have been released look pretty simple and were spotted first by PlayfulDroid. The device is a foldable smartphone and folds outwards in order to become a tablet sort of device. The device looks somewhat similar to Samsung’s foldable smartphone that was revealed in a marketing video released on the Samsung Vietnam website. The two screens fold outwards to become one bigger screen. Once done, the screens can fold in like a notebook and it will become a dual-display smartphone.
Vivo introduced the new brand iQOO recently alongside a teaser. The official website of the company is iqoo.com but it just shows information about Vivo and nothing else yet.
As for the foldable smartphone, there is no other information available. According to PlayfulDroid, the foldable smartphone from Vivo iQOO could be priced above CNY 7,000 which is around Rs. 71,000. The images released are just simple renders with no noticeable buttons or ports. This could mean the foldable smartphone from iQOO could either sport an APEX like design with no buttons or ports, or it could be just that we are looking at early renders of the smartphone and the final design could be different.
