The executive made a very fun post on his Twitter account using the Netflix logo. He invited iQOO fans to you to turn the big “N” 90 degrees left or right and share what they’re able to see. Well, when you turn an “N” by 90 degrees you will get something like the “Z” letter. This is quite an unusual teaser, and we are curious to see if the first iQOO Z smartphone to reach India will have any kind of partnership with Netflix.
