The iQOO 8 series is reportedly set to launch in India soon, according to a report. Launched as the successor to the iQOO 7 series, the iQOO 8 lineup consists of two smartphones – iQOO 8 and the iQOO 8 Legend. 91Mobiles earlier reported that iQOO was looking to debut the top-end model, the iQOO 8 Legend, in India soon. The publications now claim that the India launch of the device will be accompanied by its vanilla model – the iQOO 8.
iQOO is expected to start teasing the iQOO 8 and iQOO 8 Legend in the coming days. Now that only a few days are remaining in this month, the iQOO 8 lineup is likely to break cover in November. The iQOO 8 and 8 Legend may feature the same specs that were made available on their Chinese editions.
