The iQOO 7 was announced in China a few weeks ago. The phone is the second device in the world to have a Snapdragon 888 chipset, and on the first day it went on sale, Vivo recorded more than ¥200 million in revenue
While the new flagship packs some upgrades, the battery capacity has remained unchanged from that of its predecessor, the iQOO 5 Pro. The iQOO 7 ships with the same 4000mAh battery even though it has an even bigger display than that of the iQOO 5 Pro. For folks who are disappointed at that part of the phone, it has been reported that its successor, the iQOO 9, will come with a bigger battery.
According to the Chinese leaker, Digital Chat Station, Vivo has a new dual-cell battery in production. Each of the cells has a capacity of 2155mAh while their combined rated capacity is 4310mAh. The battery is expected to be bundled first with the iQOO 9. The combined typical capacity is said to be about 4400mAh which is the same capacity as the battery inside the iQOO 3
However, this is a dual-cell battery, which is what manufacturers use for devices with extremely fast charging. We expect the iQOO 9 will also have support for 120W fast charging just as the iQOO 7 and iQOO 5 Pro. The bigger battery should translate to more screen time for users.
The iQOO 9 is not expected to launch until the second half of the year and if we are to go by the iQOO 5 Pro’s release date, it should be announced in the middle of the third quarter of the year.
