While iQOO India is yet to tease the arrival of the iQOO 8 series, it is speculated that apart from the Pro model, the company may also bring the vanilla iQOO 8 to the country. The reason behind it is that the iQOO 8’s Indian variant with model number I2019 was spotted at the IMEI database back in August.
