iQOO announced the U5 last December and followed up with the U5x in March. Now the company has added a new member to its U5 series, dubbed iQOO U5e. Spoiler - it is just a rebranded vivo Y33e, which is also headed to the Chinese market.

The iQOO U5e is powered by the Dimensity 700 SoC and runs Android 12-based OriginOS Ocean out of the box. It comes with up to 6GB RAM and has 128GB of storage onboard, which is expandable up to 1TB via a microSD card.

The iQOO U5e is built around a 6.51" 60Hz HD+ LCD with a notch for the 8MP selfie camera. It has a 13MP primary camera on the rear, joined by a 2MP macro unit and LED flash.
