No further information on the iQOO 5G was revealed, except that the device will feature a drop notch, as you can see in the image, and more news will be revealed in the third quarter of this year, between July and September.
The company also introduced the stunning new technology Live Super FlashCharge with no less than 120W of power. With 20 Volts and 6 Amperes, the novelty allows a 4,000 mAh battery to be recharged from 0% to 50% in just five minutes, and from 0% to 100% in just 13 minutes.
There are no details if the company should adopt the technology in the iQOO 5G, but the novelty is extremely welcome and shows that the future of batteries in smartphones is not that they are bigger, but rather recharge in much less time.
And lastly, the company exhibited details about its augmented reality goggles that work with help from the 5G network, the live AR. They are two 720p resolution screens for each eye that can display games in augmented reality, 3D videos for professional needs, and can connect directly to the smartphone, without the need for a computer or hardware specific to the device.
