iQOO Z5 India launch tipped for September, but iQOO 8 series debut may be delayed

iQOO Z5 will launch as a successor to the iQOO Z3.

Highlights
  • iQOO Z5 India launch timeline has been tipped by a tipster
  • The handset is expected to launch in the country sometime later this month
  • iQOO 8 and 8 Pro India launch reportedly has been delayed, with the phones not launching in the country in September

iQOO seems to be working on the iQOO Z3 successor for the Indian market, with the handset reportedly dubbed as iQOO Z5. In the past, the smartphone has been spotted on the IMEI database with the model number I2018. Now, Twitter user Debayan Roy aka @GadgetsData has claimed the iQOO Z5 will launch in India this month, but the exact date hasn’t been revealed yet. If the company indeed has plans we can expect it to start teasing on its social media handles in the next few days. This will be the company’s next major announcement after the iQOO 7 and iQOO 7 Legend. Speculations are rife there could be an iQOO Z5 Pro in the works as well.

Furthermore, Debayan adds that iQOO 8 and 8 Pro, which launched in China last month, will not launch in India anytime soon but the unveiling is definitely on cards. This means that while the iQOO 8 series will launch in the country, it might not happen this month. We can expect the phones to be available in India sometime before the end of this year.

Coming back to the iQOO Z5 Pro, it was recently spotted on TENAA with model number V2148A. It will be the first-ever Pro model in the Z-series lineup. Unfortunately, the specifications of the phone are still under the wraps. We can expect the iQOO Z5 will bring sizeable upgrades over the iQOO Z3, probably even an AMOLED panel considering the predecessor had an IPS LCD panel. Either way, we should learn more details about the phone in the coming days. Stick around.
