iQOO 8 series comprising the iQOO 8 and the iQOO 8 Pro was launched back in August in China. Now, the brand is prepping up to launch the iQOO 8 Legend in India. For the unaware, iQOO7 Legend was launched as the rebranded version of the iQOO7 Pro. This means the upcoming iQOO 8 Legend will come as the rebranded version of the iQOO 8 Pro.
iQOO 8 Legend launching soon in India
There are reports from 91 Mobiles that the brand will launch the iQOO 8 Legend later this month or in early November in India. As of now, the company has not shared any word regarding the India launch of the iQOO 8 series. However, the Indian variant of the iQOO 8 was previously spotted on the IMEI database, confirming India’s launch. So, the brand could launch both the iQOO 8 and the iQOO 8 Legend at the same time. However, we will have to wait for the official confirmation.
Talking about the specs, the iQOO 8 Legend could be rebranded version of the iQOO 8 Pro. So, the smartphone will offer similar features as the iQOO 8 Pro. To recall, the iQOO8 Pro was announced with a 6.78-inch AMOLED display with support for 2K (1440 x 3200 pixels) resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. The iQOO 8 Pro is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 Plus SoC paired up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage. A 4,500 mAh battery fuels the device that supports 120W fast charging and 50W fast wireless charging. Moreover, there is a triple camera consisting of a 50MP IMX766V sensor with gimbal stabilization support, a 48MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 16MP camera sensor. Other features include a 16MP front camera sensor, an in-display fingerprint sensor, and connectivity options.
Furthermore, the iQOO 8 Pro price starts at CNY 4,999 (around Rs. 57,300) which makes us believe that the upcoming iQOO 8 Legend will price higher compared to its predecessor.
