Vivo introduced iQOO Pro - the cheapest flagship with 5G and Snapdragon 855 Plus

Vivo introduced a new smartphone of its sub-brand in China - Vivo iQOO Pro. It was released in two versions:

with and without 5G support.

Design

Vivo iQOO Pro clearly claims to be a gamingsmartphone (like its “parent” Vivo iQOO): on the back panel there was the inscription >>>> Monster Inside <<<<, which is illuminated, has Monster Touch keys on the side for control during games. There is also a Hi-Fi audio chip for high-quality sound and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The smartphone is protected from overheating by a carbon fiber liquid cooling system.

91.7% of the front panel is occupied by a 6.41-inch Super AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution (2340×1080 pixels), and this is far from the maximum figure: the frames around the screen could have been thinner.

A drop-shaped cutout was made for the front camera, and a fingerprint scanner is built into the screen.
