120W charging may be a sought-after new spec in phones: not only can it charge a 4000mAh battery in as little as 15 minutes, it features in the new super-premium flagship, Xiaomi's Mi 10 Ultra. This may be why iQOO is said to have built a whole new series of phones around the new technology.
Now, the OEM has reportedly announced a special BMW-themed edition of the same at their August 17, 2020 launch. This iQOO 5 BMW or possibly Racing Edition may be the only one to support this FlashCharge 120W standard. According to its teaser, it also has a carbon-fiber effect (at least) rear panel and a triple rear camera with a periscope lens.
In other news, the same 2 brands have unveiled a partnership for the DTM, a motorsport series in which BMW is a competitor. Given that it takes place in Europe, this may also be a sign that iQOO wants to break into the same market. Should it bring its well-priced flagship Z and Neo lines with it, the latest generations of which feature top-end Snapdragon and Dimensity silicon, it may find a good reception there.
