Just a couple of days back, Vivo announced its sub-brand called IQOO. Apart from this, no other information pertaining to this new sub-brand was revealed. However, what we do know is that IQOO will offer smartphones with futuristic features. Within a time span of two days, reports revolving IQOO’s first smartphone have surfaced online. According to these reports, IQOO will launch a foldable device. To back these claims, even the alleged images of the IQOO foldable smartphone have made their appearance online.

Additionally, reports also reveal that the smartphone is priced at RMB 5000 (roughly calculates to Rs 52,600).

IQOO Foldable Smartphone: Render Details
Looking at the renders, it is easy to guess that this smartphone will come with an in-fold design. When folded out, the smartphone can be used as a tablet. Similarly, when folded, the device can be used as a smartphone. Moreover, when folded into a smartphone, the device reveals an edge-to-edge display. Also, when folded to a smartphone, the device will come with a display on the front and the rear.
As there is no hole or a selfie camera housed anywhere on the display, we can expect the smartphone to come with a pop-up selfie camera. Also, without a physical fingerprint sensor, the device will be similar to the in display fingerprint sensor mobile phones. Apart from that, the IQOO foldable smartphone features a port-less and button-les design. As of now, there is no official confirmation from Vivo. We can expect more information on this smartphone in the upcoming days.
