vivo iQOO officially arriving on March 1

Yordan, 20 February 2019

The Chinese manufacturer vivo announced a sub-brand named iQOO earlier this month. The company hasn’t revealed any phone until today but finally posted a teaser on Weibo, announcing March 1 as the launch date. We will see the “Monster Inside” at an event, taking place in the city of Shenzhen, China.

The vivo iQOO phone will be “the most powerful ever” if we can trust the image.

Since an UD fingerprint scanner was also teased, the front is likely to have an AMOLED screen.
