iQOO, a sub-brand of the smartphone OEM Vivo, released a premium, Snapdragon 855 Plus-powered device called the Pro 5G in 2019. Now, with a new Geekbench 5 listing that may fit its description, its 2nd generation could be on the way. It apparently runs Android 10 and has 8GB of RAM.

Vivo may be betting heavily on 5G going forward. It has already released its X30 line, which has the dual-mode version of this connectivity, and is also rumored to launch another device based on the Snapdragon 765G soon. Therefore, it is reasonable to expect the company may go even more premium with this trend, perhaps with a phone featuring Qualcomm's new flagship silicon and the optional modem required.

Now, there is evidence that this phone is on the way, but is destined for the OEM's brand iQOO, which released Pro 5G-enabled phones last year thanks to their Snapdragon 855+ processor. A possible successor to this line may have leaked via a new set of Geekbench 5 results. Based on its apparent SoC, it could also have advanced mobile data standards.

This new phone is called the Vivo I1927 on Geekbench. Admittedly, this OEM usually exhibits model names with the format V19xxA, which is a dead giveaway that this represents a new convention for iQOO phones in 2020 - or is, indeed, a fake.

Presuming the former is the case, the "new flagship" is powered by a processor with a speed of 1.804GHz and the code-name kona - specs associated with the Snapdragon 865. It has helped the I1927 achieve scores that compete effectively with what may be Samsung Galaxy S20-series devices spotted on the same benchmarking site ahead of their own launch. Therefore, it is just possible that iQOO has an exciting new release waiting in the wings.
