Chinese tech giant Vivo’s sub-brand iQOO seems to be planning to launch a handful of new smartphones in the near future. While the company hasn’t yet announced anything officially, it seems to be preparing to launch as many as five new smartphones in the coming days. The brand has filed trademarks for several names like the Vivo “EQOO”, “OQOO”, “UQOO”, “VQOO”, and “XQOO”, which are expected to come under Vivo’s iQOO series of smartphones. The trademarks have appeared in the database of the World Intellectual Property Organisation. Some of these trademarks have been filed in the Philippines and some are in Columbia, which are expected to be the targeted launch markets for these devices.
The trademarks for the Vivo EQOO, OQOO, UQOO, VQOO, and XQOO haven’t revealed anything about the features of these upcoming smartphones. They are filed under the Nice Class 99 and 9, which are usually used to trademark mobile communication devices. So we can expect the company to launch these smartphones in the near future. The trademarks were filed only a few days ago.
Vivo’s iQOO sub-brand debuted in March this year by launching its first smartphone that goes by the same name. After the iQOO, the company has released three new handsets called the iQOO Neo, iQOO Neo 855, and iQOO Pro. The Chinese brand hasn’t yet released any of the iQOO series smartphones in India.
Talking about the most recent phone from the company, the iQOO Neo 855, it was introduced in October as one of the most affordable handsets to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 processor. The phone has a Super AMOLED display with a waterdrop notch above it and a fingerprint sensor under it. The other highlights of the smartphone include HDR10 support, DC dimming, up to 8GB of RAM, up to 256GB of storage, Game Space 2.5, a 4,500mAh battery with 33W fast charging support, and a long liquid cooling heat pipe and thermally conductive gel placed around the CPU to keep it cool while providing maximum performance. The phone is available in China at the starting price of around Rs 20,300.
