Chinese manufacturer iQOO has published a teaser via GSMArena in which it confirms that it will launch the new iQOO smartphone on August 4th. According to speculation, the company will launch iQOO 8. The news took a lot of people by surprise, as the iQOO had not provided any indication regarding the successors of the iQOO 7.
However, it looks the company is working on another smartphone under the iQOO 7 series which will be dubbed iQOO 7 Pro. Recently, iQOO 7 Pro is listed on the IMEI database with model V2141A, which does imply to us that the handset could soon launch. The listing doesn’t reveal much else about the handset at the moment.
