iQOO recently unveiled the next-gen 120 watt (W) version of its FlashCharge system for smartphones. Now, it has announced an August 2020 launch date for an entirely new line of mobile devices. One of these is likely to be the first to feature the ultra-fast new power tech.

Recently, iQOO introduced its fastest-ever charging standard. Known as FlashCharge, it is rated to power a device at no less than 120W, which may make for some seriously reduced wall-wart dependency. Now, the Vivo sub-brand has hinted that at least one of its upcoming phones will be the first to bring it to consumers.

Indeed, an iQOO 5 variant may have this 120W technology as a unique selling point. It is currently believed to be called the Pro, and may launch alongside a more budget sibling without the feature.

iQOO recently demonstrated FlashCharge 120W at the ChinaJoy trade expo in a phone largely hidden by a heavy-duty case; it is possible that this 5 Pro was the device in question.

Should this be the case, the upcoming iQOO product might also have a single punch-hole in a curved display. As its possible teaser material mentioned the term "15mins", its battery may have a capacity of 4000mAh.

This is because iQOO estimates it takes FlashCharge 120W only 15 minutes to fully charge a battery of this size. These official leaks may all come to fruition at the 5-series' August 17, 2020 launch.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
