Yesterday brought us a look at the iQOO 8 marketing prop which did sport a new FlashCharge sign possibly hinting at the 160W solution. Granted this is just pure speculation at this point and there’s no official word from iQOO yet so take this info with caution.

160W charging is certainly possible, we recently got the chance to test out Infinix’s Concept Phone 2021 which managed a full charge in a mere 10 minutes blasting 160W of power into its 4,000 mAh battery.

For now, we’ll just have to wait for more official news and see what iQOO has in store.
