The iQOO Z5 arrived back in September 2021, followed by a Z5x a month later. Both devices are available only in China, and while the global market welcomed the iQOO Z6 series, a new Z5-named phone by the vivo brand is heading to the domestic scene.
The information comes from Digital Chat Station, who posted on Weibo that the new iQOO Z5 will have a 6,000 mAh battery with 44W fast-charging capabilities.
The source also claimed the chipset of this new mysterious phone will be competitive to the Dimensity 8000. There aren’t many mid-range platforms that can match the octa-core CPU of the Mediatek SoC with four cores at 2.75 GHz, so we’re expecting the Snapdragon 778G from the original iQOO Z5 to stay.
In other specs, the phone will also have a 6.58” LCD and a thick 9.21 mm body. We are on the lookout for more leaks and teasers for features because apparently, the new iQOO Z5 is just around the corner.
