iQOO 8 and iQOO 8 Legend May No Longer Debut in India

A couple of months back, iQOO took to China to launch the iQOO 8 and iQOO 8 Pro flagship devices. Following the launch, several sources have speculated that iQOO will announce the iQOO 8 series smartphones in India soon.

However, the company didn’t say a word regarding the launch of the iQOO 8 series in India. So, the news remained mere speculation. But the reports said that the smartphones would arrive in India as the iQOO 8 and iQOO Legend.

Unfortunately, the tipster – Debayan Roy – who recently reported on the Indian launch of the iQOO 8 lineup has retracted his claims. Now, he says that the iQOO 8 series may no longer debut in India.

Presently, the iQOO 8 smartphone lineup is exclusive to the Chinese markets. And previous reports have hinted that the smartphone series may hit the Indian markets in November.

Surprisingly, an alleged Indian variant of the iQOO 8 series recently surfaced on many certification platforms. The certifications strengthened the claims of the Indian launch of the iQOO 8 series.

But as these listings continue to suggest the Indian debut of the iQOO 8 lineup, the company is yet to release a teaser of the smartphone series in India, which is quite odd. But if the smartphone maker plans to release the iQOO 8 series in India, it may release some teasers in the coming days.
