The new iQOO smartphone is packed with powerful specs that could accompany users on their smooth gaming experience. Its physique flashes a unique design, too, as it features a 3D glass back with LED strip. The latter comes with 16.8 million color options, and is also working as a notification light, as well as gaming lights to level up your experience.

Vivo equipped it with notable gaming features such as Monster Touch, and a Vapor-Liquid Cooling system that can make your iQOO 14% cooler than the Vivo NEX. Moreover, it has special software developed to avoid frame drops, while it can prioritize app resources, and intelligently switch to 4G and WiFi or vice versa.

Meanwhile, the iQOO phone flaunts a 6.41-inch AMOLED screen with a Halo display, resulting to 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, it carries the 7nm Snapdragon 855 octa-core processor, up to 12GB of RAM, and up to 256GB of internal storage.
