iQOO Z5 IMEI certification appears

The iQOO Z5, the spiritual successor to the recently launched iQOO Z3 5G, has been found doing rounds at the IMEI certification website. The recent listing gives us an insight into the model number and moniker. The device has been listed with the model number I2018 under the manufacturer name Vivo Mobile Communications Co Ltd on the IMEI website. The iQOO Z5 has also been spotted on C-DOT CEIR IMEI website. This listing also elaborates on the bands that will be present on the device. 

Tipster Mukul Sharma has taken to Twitter to announce that iQOO is soon going to debut the iQOO Z5 in India. However, no information has been shared about the device specifics like features or a scheduled timeline for its launch. An educated guess would suggest that the device will be out very soon as it is now doing rounds at various certification institutions. 

iQOO Z5 expected specifications

The iQOO Z5 will be debuting in India soon after the launch of the iQOO Z3 5G. This may be taken as a hint to minor upgrades over the Z3 5G rather than a major hardware boost. The iQOO Z5 can be expected to come with a faster processor as compared to the Z3 5G’s Snapdragon 768G SoC. MySmartPrice suggests a Snapdragon 778G can be seen under the hood. An AMOLED panel instead of the LCD display panel on the iQOO Z3 5G can be expected as well. The iQOO Z5 is likely to retain the 120Hz refresh rate. 

Specifics and details can be expected once official announcements are made by iQOO.
