However, the previously-launched iQOO 7 Pro did not have it. The listing also hints at an impending launch of the Pro flagship variant in India. However, the company has not revealed the launch date yet.
The vanilla iQOO 8 could launch in India next month if previously surfaced reports prove to be true. Regrettably, details about the Pro model’s India launch date are still few and far between.
