The iQOO sub-brand from vivo grew to 7 phones in 2019 and it seems we’re due for yet another at the start of 2020. A new certification from China’s 3C certification agency shows a device that comes with the V1950A model number – according to rumors, this should be the vivo iQOO 3 5G. This name was also spotted at the IMEI database earlier.
The certification details a phone with 5G connectivity as well as 44W fast charging. Apart from that, we don’t have much more to work with in terms of specs. Chances are the iQOO 3 5G will be fitted with the Snapdragon 865 chipset alongside the X55 5G modem.
Adhering to the iQOO norms we should also expect gamer-centric design and software optimizations. We’ll be on the lookout for more clues.
