- iQOO may expand its popular Z6 series.
- A new iQOO Z6 5G with 80W fast charging is reportedly in development.
- iQOO Z6 series currently features three models – the vanilla iQOO Z6 5G, the iQOO Z6 Pro and the iQOO Z6 44W.
The Z series has been a best seller for iQOO with the iQOO Z6 5G doing quite well in the Indian market. That said, as per a new report, a new model in the iQOO Z6 series with 80W fast charging capability is reportedly being developed by the Chinese phone maker. The current iQOO Z6 5G lineup has three models, with the vanilla iQOO Z6 5G, which launched in India in March offering 18W fast charging, and the iQOO Z6 Pro getting 66W fast charging support. The third iQOO Z6 44W is a 4G offering which launched in April this year.
The only information available regarding this specific model is that it has fast charging capability, and could be powered by a Snapdragon 7 series SoC from Qualcomm. This smartphone could be released globally at a later stage after initially entering the Chinese market sometime next month. Recently, there were reports of an iQOO Z6x spotted on the Google Play supported devices list. It remains to be seen whether the new tipped iQOO Z6 5G 80W is actually the iQOO Z6x or not.
iQOO Z6 5G China specifications (expected)
The rumoured phone may also include a 120Hz LCD panel, a 64MP triple camera configuration on the back, and a 5,000mAh battery with 80W fast charging. This rumoured device is still superior to the Snapdragon 695-powered iQOO Z6 5G Indian variant, which also has a 120Hz LCD panel, and 5,000mAh battery, and supports just 18W charging.
Since the iQOO Z5 was unveiled late last year in China, a new ‘Z’ series smartphone model has been long overdue. This device may as well be referred to as the iQOO Z6 5G given the time frame. As the launch draws near, we should learn more about this phone in the following days.
