iQoo 8 will be unveiled on August 4 according to the latest leaks and a teaser video by a company executive. The iQoo 7 series was launched in China in January and then in India in April. It was a flagship offering and iQoo 8 is expected to be the same. Some specs have also been tipped and the phone is said to be powered by the recently announced Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 Plus SoC. At the moment, iQoo has not confirmed that it will launch a new phone next month.
iQoo president Feng Yufei shared a video on the Chinese microblogging website Weibo showing a pool table with a ball, with the number eight hitting a ball and sinking the number four. While there is no confirmation in the post itself, a new iQoo smartphone is believed to be coming on August 4. The eight ball can also be a reference to the iQoo 8.
Giving this speculation more weight was a post from tipster Whylab on Weibo stating that the iQoo 8 will launch on August 4 and that it will be the first phone with Snapdragon 888 Plus. Then, tipster Digital Chat Station (translated) also posted on Weibo that the iQoo 8 has the model number V2141A and that it will come with a 1,440 x 3,200 pixel screen with a high refresh rate. The tipster added that the phone will be powered by a Snapdragon 888 Plus SoC and will come with 12GB of RAM with 4GB of expanded storage. The phone may also come with 256GB of storage and run OriginOS 1.0 based on Android 11.
More information about the rumored iQoo 8 is expected to be revealed soon.
The iQoo 7 was launched in India in April along with the iQoo 7 Legend.
