- iQOO has filed trademark applications for “iQOO PAD” and “iQOOBOOK”
- It suggests we may see iQOO-branded tablets and laptops soon
- Xiaomi and Huawei are major Chinese rivals that offer laptops and tablets
iQOO seems to be expanding its portfolio beyond just smartphones as the company has filed a trademark application for “iQOO PAD” and “iQOOBOOK”. Speculations are rife that the names could suggest the brand is planning to enter the tablet and notebook product categories. These trademark applications were filed in June. While it isn’t clear when iQOO may launch these products, but it seems that the Vivo sub-brand is looking to expand its product portfolio at a future date.
Beyond the trademark applications, nothing much is known about the iQOO-branded tablet and notebook at the moment. It will be interesting to see how iQOO plans to take on Xiaomi and Huawei in the tablet and notebook space in China and other markets.
Separately, iQOO 5 is set to debut in China on August 17th. This will succeed the iQOO 3 line-up and is confirmed to feature 120W charging speed. The new standard is claimed to charge a 4,000mAh battery completely in just 15 minutes. The handset is tipped to come with 120Hz display, Snapdragon 865 SoC and an AMOLED display. The handset is likely to run Android 10 OS with the company’s custom skin on top. The iQOO 5 line-up may have more than just a single variant but all of them may not debut on the same stage.
