Vivo separated iQOO has an individual brand, and this means that the brand now functions independently, previously the brand has launched the iQOO 3 5G as the first smartphone after getting separated and it seems pretty good for the price, packing in a Snapdragon 865 and more. While some of you might not remember the first generation iQOO smartphone named as the Vivo iQOO, which had pretty great specifications packing in a Snapdragon 855 last year, now the brand has been gearing up for the launch of a toned-down version of the Vivo iQOO, named as the iQOO Lite.
Previously, in the month of October 2019, An unknown device with model number V1936A had appeared on China 3C Certification portal and now the device has surfaced the Geekbench revealing some of its key specifications. The Geekbench listing of the purposed ‘Vivo V1936A’ reveals that it is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset which has recorded a base frequency of 1.78GHz. The processor has been codenamed with ‘msmnile’ on the revealed Geekbench listing. This chipset will be coupled with up to 8 GB of RAM and will probably run on the new iQOO UI by iQOO, and previously the device was running on Android 9 Pie, but iQOO may have upgraded it with Android 10 out of the box, as this listing is about 6 months old. When it comes to the numbers, With the Snapdragon 855 on the iQOO Lite, the smartphone scores 3,516 in the single-core test and 11,262 in the multi-core test.
Also, Vivo had previously trademarked smartphones with names such as the NEX Pro, NEX Neo, Vivo X Lite and ‘iQOO Lite’ with European Union Intellectual Property Office, (EUIPO), so the name iQOO Lite with the Snapdragon 855 matches the specifications going by the name. Other than the geekbench listing, The 3C Certification of the leaked smartphone confirms that it will ship with a fast 33W Charger out of the box. The original Vivo iQOO smartphone shipped with a 4,000mAh battery which was added with a 44W rapid charger in the box. So probably, the iQOO Lite would be featuring a battery capacity of 4,500mAh battery. While the other specifications of the device are still unknown, we may soon start receiving some more leaks and information regarding the iQOO Lite.
