After Xiaomi last week, it’s Vivo’s turn to announce the launch in China of a new ultra-high-end smartphone, the Vivo Iqoo 5 Pro. The device, along with the Vivo Iqoo 5, notably benefits from 120 W fast charging as well as a screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz.

Like the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra, the Vivo Iqoo 5 Pro is a true technological demonstration from its manufacturer. We thus find a Snapdragon 865 chip associated with 8 or 12 GB of LPDDR6 RAM and 256 GB of storage in UFS 3.1. For the battery, the device relies on a 4000 mAh accumulator. Above all, the smartphone can be charged with a power of 120 W, which is the same power as the Mi 10 Ultra. This is the fastest charge on the market.
For the screen, the Vivo Iqoo 5 Pro sports a 6.56-inch Oled panel in Full HD + with curved edges. Enough to display 2376 pixels by 1080. The screen also benefits from a refresh rate of 120 Hz.
For the photo, the Iqoo 5 Pro is equipped with a main sensor of 50 megapixels (f/1.85), a camera of 13 megapixels in ultra wide-angle (f/2.2) and a 8-megapixel telephoto lens with x5 optical and digital x60 (f/3.4) zoom. On the front, it is a 16 megapixel camera (f/2.45) which is integrated into a punch at the top left of the screen.
A Vivo IQOO 5 With A Larger Capacity Battery :
Alongside this Iqoo 5 Pro, Vivo also presented a more traditional Iqoo 5. Also equipped with the Snapdragon 865 with 8 or 12 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of storage, it benefits from a 4,500 mAh battery, therefore larger than its big brother, but with limited fast charging at 55 W.
Regarding the screen, the Vivo Iqoo 5 has a similar 6.56-inch Amoled panel, displaying 2376 pixels by 1080. However, it is not curved, but does display a refresh rate of 120 Hz.
On the photo side, we will find an identical main camera, with a definition of 50 megapixels and an aperture of f/1.85. The same goes for the 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle module opening at f/2.2. Nevertheless, the Iqoo 5 stands out with its third device. It is not a telephoto lens, but a 13 megapixel sensor opening at f/2.46 and dedicated to portraits. The smartphone is therefore not equipped with any optical zoom.
For now, the Iqoo 5 and 5 Pro have only been announced in China where they are marketed from 4,298 yuan (623 $) for the Iqoo 5 and 4,998 yuan (723 $) for the Iqoo 5 Pro.
As a reminder, the Chinese manufacturer’s Nex and Iqoo smartphones will not arrive in Europe until a second stage.
