Finally, the much-anticipated iQOO 5 series is here. The company unveiled the flagship phones in China today. The iQOO 5 lineup includes the iQOO 5 and the iQOO 5 Pro.

Both devices feature same specs to a large extent, but the Pro variant of the iQOO 5 series comes with performance-enhanced features and specifications.

The iQOO 5 series debuts with a 6.56-inch AMOLED display with support for 120Hz refresh rate. However, the iQOO 5 Pro features a display with curved edges, unlike the standard version.

Also, the iQOO 5 series comes with in-screen fingerprint scanners and on-screen punch holes for the selfie cameras.

As for the lenses, the iQOO 5 series arrives with 16-megapixel front-facing cameras.

On the backside, the smartphones feature triple-camera setups. On the iQOO 5 Pro, the camera setup is led by Samsung’s 50-megapixel GN1 lens. The primary camera is followed by an ultrawide 13-megapixel shooter with a 120-degree field-of-view and a 13-megapixel periscopic telephoto lens.

On the other hand, the camera setup on the iQOO 5 consists of a 50-megapixel Samsung GN1 primary camera, a 13-megapixel ultrawide lens, and an 8-megapixel portrait lens.

Under the hood, the iQOO 5 series is powered by the Snapdragon 865 chipset alongside LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage. Both devices run on Android 10 based iQOO UI 5.0.

As for the batteries, the iQOO 5 carries support for 55W fast charging tech and relies on a 4,500mAh battery. The Pro variant of the iQOO 5 series is backed up by a moderate 4,000mAh battery. The iQOO 5 Pro supports 120W fast charging.

According to the company, it takes 15 minutes to fully charge the iQOO 5 Pro, thanks to the 120W fast charging feature. 

On the connectivity aspect, each device supports 5G, Wi-Fi 6, NFC, USB-C port, Bluetooth 5.1, and GPS. Other features include Hi-Res audio support, stereo speakers with in-built audio chip, and facial recognition.
