Vivo iQoo 5G smartphone with liquid cooling teased in India

iQoo, Vivo’s sub-brand is all set to enter the Indian market with its first 5G smartphone this month. A teaser has been posted by the iQoo India Twitter account that shows the brand’s logo with a “coming soon” tag. The entity has made a dedicated website that would include further details about the upcoming smartphone. The teaser also highlights 5G support and will have liquid cooling. Also, a YouTube video has suggested that star cricketer Virat Kohli was already spotted using the upcoming iQoo phone.

The narrator in the video mentions that the smartphone could be the iQoo Pro 5G Edition that was launched in China back in August last year, given the design surfaced on the image that is inline with last year's model. However, considering the hardware of the iQoo Pro 5G Edition that included the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus SoC, it is not likely to be the smartphone entering the India market.  iQoo India Director - Marketing Gagan Arora in a conversation with select media persons last month stated that the new iQoo smartphone that would be launched in India in February would come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC. The executive also mentioned that the phone would have a “best in class technology” related to battery and support 5G networks in India. Moreover, the smartphone would come with 44W Super Flash Charge fast charging technology.  Vivo had unveiled the first model under its iQoo sub-brand in China last year that was called the Vivo iQoo. However, for the India market, the brand doesn't want to be associated with Vivo and debut as a separate legal entity with a distinct office space located in Bengaluru. It would continue to use the manufacturing facility that produces Vivo smartphones, though.
