In March this year, we got the first phone from Vivo under the iQOO series & it was an impressive phone made especially for gamers. Then, we got the iQOO Neo with Snapdragon 845 SOC at a mid-range price. Today, the Vivo iQOO Pro launched in China & it is the latest flagship from the brand that features the Snapdragon 855 Plus SOC & also has a 5G variant.
VIVO iQOO PRO – DESIGN & SPECIFICATIONS
When you compare the first iQOO series phone & the iQOO Pro, there is almost no difference at all in the design except for one thing. There is “Monster Inside” text on the back panel. Rest of the design is the same with a vertically placed triple camera setup on the back, a display with a waterdrop notch on the front& the phone has an in-screen fingerprint scanner.
