Vivo iQOO - new monster

Vivo introduced the first smartphone undersubbrand iQOO. Surprisingly, the device was simply called the Vivo iQOO. If you consider iQOO as an independent brand, it turns out that the smartphone will receive only one last name, without a name.

The name, by the way, is funny. Self-critical IQ score is two zeros.

Okay, this is all checkered, does not affect the speed. A lot of interesting things were told in advance about the model, advanced characteristics were promised - from the top processor to 12 GB of RAM. All true

The smartphone is built on the Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset855 for which the multi-level cooling system is provided. The minimum configuration has 6 GB of RAM (with 128 GB of storage), there are also 8 GB options + 128/256 GB, and the most sophisticated version has 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB storage.

Screen 6.41-inch Super AMOLED with a resolution of 1080 × 2340 mAh. It has a cutout for the front camera - but a small, drop-shaped. A fingerprint sensor is built into the screen.

New Triple Camera, Sony Leading ModuleIMX363 12 MP with an aperture of f / 1.79, it is accompanied by 13 MP wide-angle (120 °), plus an additional 2 megapixel to create a bokeh effect. The front camera is 12 megapixel.

The smartphone is equipped with a solid battery capacity4000 mAh and supports only 44W speed charging. A quarter of an hour is enough to charge the battery by 50%. And he also has a full lace of wonderful design - you won’t confuse.

The device is presented under the motto “Monster Inside” and this very monster in some places climbs out.

In the middle of the back panel you can see its glowing ridge. The effect is named Monster Halo. The LED strip shimmers in a variety of colors, signaling the message or in time with the music.

On the right side there are buttons Monster Touch - touch, not showing themselves to the touch. Useful for control in games with landscape orientation of the screen.

Vivo iQOO is already available for order, and in all four versions. Prices for the promised characteristics do not seem outrageous.


6 + 128 GB ¥ 2998 (£ 29500)
8 + 128 GB ¥ 3298 (32500₽)
8 + 256 GB ¥ 3,598 (£ 355)
12 + 256 GB ¥ 4,298 (Rs.

There are two color options at the moment, but it seems that a third one should appear - black with a hem.
