Since its inception, iQOO has been bringing interesting devices with competitive specifications, innovative ideas, and affordable price tags. Now, the company is gearing up to give an important step with the release of iQOO 5. The new smartphone will be revealed on August 17.
The device has been a target of multiple leaks during the past few weeks. The handset will come with interesting specifications like a 120Hz refresh rate display and astonishing 120W fast-wired charging. Now, the latest wave of leaks brings us the retail package of the smartphone along with some photo samples.

The brand shared several camera samples that look really impressive. The set of pictures was revealed by iQOO’s Weibo page. Interestingly enough, the sample photos also confirm the phone’s performance at night.
