iQOO has confirmed that it will launch new, 8-series premium Android smartphones in mid-August 2021. It has also teased these phones with the announcement that they will launch with new, "E5" display panels with high pixel densities and 10-bit color. The 8 and possible 8 Pro are also said to come with a variable refresh rate and DC dimming.

iQOO has made its intention to update the 7 with new versions that run on the refreshed Snapdragon 888+ processor. It has also overtly referred to these devices as the "8 series", suggesting that there is to be a Pro variant this time.

The devices in question have been rumored to have new "E5" display technology, a detail iQOO has also now set in stone. The brand has not entirely clarified this term, although it is thought to be a successor to Samsung's high-end E4 panels from earlier this year.

iQOO has yet to actually mention this display-maker in relation to the upcoming E5 screens, although they are also slated to have 2K resolutions, with 517 pixels per inch (ppi). Meanwhile, other leaks suggest that the new panels have layers that promote enhanced luminescence, and also has a transparent aperture to go over a punch-hole camera in order to make it less conspicuous.

The iQOO 8, 8 Pro or both are also rumored to be capable of automatically changing their refresh rates from 1 to 120Hz, according to the best rate for the content on-screen. They are now scheduled to launch on August 17, 2021, although whether this will be a global launch or not remains to be seen.

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.
