The first commercially available phone with charging speeds over 100W, vivo iQOO 5, is coming on August 17. The company revealed it will have 120W fast-charging and posted a video, revealing the process of certification at TUV Rheinland while answering some of the questions about such charging rates.
During charging, the iQOO 5 smartphone will reach “normal temperatures” in a test environment of room temperature of about 25 degrees. The plug will be able to withstand 10,000 plug-ins and plug-outs of a cable, while the battery can take up to 600 charge and discharge cycles where the phone battery life will remain “normal” and the battery will stay “as strong as ever”.
The iQOO 5 was tested in extreme environments, and it performed normally between -20 and 130 degrees Celsius. There is some battery protection, the new 6C cells are of the highest standard and TUV Rheinland guaranteed the voltage and current are safe.
A separate post on Weibo has given us a bit more info about the display, including refresh rate and color gamut.
While the video reveals the iQOO 5 will have three cameras on the back and curved edges of the screen, the brand itself added that it will be an AMOLED panel with 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate. The DCI-P3 color gamut will be 100% which is more than the industry standard.
So far we also know it will have a Snapdragon 865 chipset, latest LPDDR5 RAM, and UFS 3.1 storage. The big question remains the price and whether this phone will follow the iQOO 3 on a journey outside China.
