iQOO 8 launched with Snapdragon 888 and 48MP “gimbal” camera

Qualcomm’s premium chipsets empower iQOO’s latest flagship smartphones. There are two models in the iQOO 8 series: a vanilla model and a Pro model. The following discussion will cover the IQOO 8 Price in Nepal with its specs, features and availability.

Design and Display

“Burn” is a Chinese word that roughly translates to “legend” (roughly translated from Mandarin). It features a tricolor stripe as a symbol of the company’s partnership with BMW.

Similarly, the Track Edition features a carbon fiber finish to pay homage to racing tracks. Last but not least, the “Burn” comes with white photochromic glass that changes to orange when exposed to light.

In addition to the 6.56-inch FHD+ AMOLED panel, the iQOO 8 features support for 120Hz refresh rates. A 1 billion color gamut can be produced and it fully covers the DCI-P3 color gamut. Although it’s not as bright as that on the Pro model, it’s still quite good.

iQOO has included a separate display chip in the iQOO 8 as well, just like the Pro model. It keeps the frame rate stable and increases power efficiency, says the company. Additionally, HDR content can be upscaled from SDR.

Performance and Memory

The iQOO 8 is powered by a Snapdragon 888, unlike the Pro model, which has a Snapdragon 888+. As with the Pro model, it has the VC (Vapor Chamber) cooling system. Besides the 12GB RAM and 256GB internal storage, the phone supports up to 3GB of Bluetooth capability. As a virtual RAM technology, too, Memory Fusion is supported by iQOO.
