The Vivo iQOO was initially launched in 4 memory variants – 6GB/128GB, 8GB/128GB, 8GB/256GB, and 12GB/256GB. The company has now launched the fifth variant which will have 12GB RAM and 128GB storage.
The decision makes sense as the new variant will have the more-than-required 12 gigs of RAM power and an ample 128GB of onboard storage and will still be somewhat cheaper than its 235GB counterpart. The new variant will only be available in one colour – Electric Blue.

Starting things off with the display, the Vivo IQoo sports a 6.4-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display giving out a resolution of 1080×2340 pixels and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Vivo has not tried too much with the pop-up camera shenanigans this time around and has decided to stick to a “traditional” waterdrop notch.
Under the hood, the Vivo IQoo is powered with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset which is coupled with 6GB/8GB/12GB of RAM and 128GB/256GB of internal storage with a scope of further expansion with the help of an external SD card.
At the back, we get a triple camera setup (13MP + 12MP + 2MP). At the front, we have a single 12MP selfie snapper which will be kept inside a waterdrop notch. In the picture above, we see an under-display fingerprint scanner and a pretty tiny chin.
A large 4,000 mAh battery fuels the device (which gets fully charged in 47 minutes by the way owing to the 44W charger support) with a USB Type-C charging port.
Moving on to the price of the device, the 12GB/128GB variant is priced at $551 and will go on sale in China come April 14.
