iQOO 5 with 120W fast charging is confirmed to launch on August 17, the company has revealed. With this, the iQOO 5 could be the first phone to come with 120W fast charging out-of-the-box after companies like Oppo and Realme unveiled their fast-charging solutions last month.
iQOO took to Weibo to post a teaser of the upcoming iQOO 5 that is slated to be unveiled on August 17 at 2:30 PM CST (12 PM IST) in China. Given that the iQOO 3 did make it to India, we expect the company to bring the iQOO 5 to India in the coming months.
The teaser image posted by iQOO reveals that the 120W fast charging solution will be able to fully recharge the 4,000mAh battery on the iQOO 5 in 15 minutes tops. In contrast, Oppo and Realme’s 125W fast charging solution can fully recharge a 4,000mAh battery in 20 minutes, which is tad a bit slower than what iQOO claims.
iQOO’s fast charging solution uses two charge pumps to convert the adapter output to 5V 12A wattage, unlike Oppo’s solution that makes use of three charge pumps.
Some alleged renders of the iQOO 5 made it to the Internet which shows a phone with curved edges and a glossy finish on the back. The phone seems to have a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera and has a vertical camera setup on the back.
The iQOO 5 is expected to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 or Snapdragon 865 Plus chipset with UFS 3.1 storage and 120Hz refresh rate AMOLED display. There could be a quad-camera setup on the back but it is something that we’ll hear about closer to the launch.
The iQOO 5 is scheduled to launch on August 17 and we’ll know more about the phone at the time.
