The vivo iQOO 5G will be its first 5G phone after testing a vivo NEX 5G prototype. Vivo plans to release the phone in the next three months. It uses a Snapdragon 855 chipset connected to an external X50 modem. 5G requires four antennas combined with the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi that’s a total of eight.
Since 5G requires more power, vivo couldn’t just reduce the battery to compensate. The phone was connected to a 5G network for a day and its battery was at 70%. 5G networks will reduce latency, allow more devices to connect to a network and allow carriers to increase data caps.
The latency on the next-gen networks can be reduced by 10ms, which will help for game streaming services and AR applications. They can display AR games, 3D video and can be used in a professional setting.
Data speeds can be 5-10 times higher than 4G. And since a 5G cell could support more simultaneously-connected devices, future Internet of Things devices can connect directly to the network.
Vivo Super FlashCharge works at 20V and 6A and promises to charge a 4,000mAh battery to 50% in 5 minutes and a complete charge takes 13 minutes. The vivo iQOO 5G will support the 120W fast charging. We expect concrete details about the phone to be revealed as it gets closer to launch.
