Vivo recently had announced that it would be launching a new smartphone in its sub-brand called IQOO. The new sub-brand is likely to launch premium smartphones with latest features and looks the first device coming under this brand will be a foldable smartphone. Reports from PlayfulDroid suggest that the device could be priced at CNY 7,000 (Rs 71,000 approx.). Images of the phone have rendered and have been surfaced online on Weibo.
According to the render, the company could opt for a fold-out design unlike the fold-in design of Samsung. The two screens fold outwards to become a big screen and once done the screen can fold in like a notebook making it a dual display smartphone.
IQOO is the new sub-brand of Vivo and the new official website of the company is iqoo.com, which only shows information about Vivo. So far not much is known about the configurations of the foldable phone, but Vivo recently had unveiled the futuristic Vivo APEX 2019 smartphone in January, that flaunts a port-less and button-less design, coupled with a full-screen in-display fingerprint reader and a screen sound-cast technology. The device will be powered by Snapdragon 855 processor, backed with 12GB RAM.
We will have to wait and watch until the company officially launches the device in the market.
