The upcoming iQOO 10 Pro flagship Android smartphone is projected to launch with the latest top-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor. However, it now seems the vanilla 10 that might accompany it will hold its own with the equally new MediaTek Dimensity 9000 Plus SoC. Its brand has reportedly secured the rights to be first to the market with this updated silicon.

The iQOO "10 Pro" is tipped to launch with the refreshed Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor - although it may fail to be first to do so as a flagship phone with this spec. However, its brand (a subsidiary of Vivo) is now touted to win another race in July 2022: that for the corresponding Dimensity 9000+ podium.

The new MediaTek flagship is an iterative upgrade over the 9000, and has reportedly been spotted trading blows with the 8+ Gen 1 on Geekbench. Now, the 2 SoCs will apparently get a chance to keep on doing so within the very same premium Android series, as part of the iQOO 10.

This possibility, freshed broached by famed leaker Digital Chat Station , could also make the 10 a frankly more interesting upgrade over its most direct predecessor the 8, which was left on the Snapdragon 888 platform while the 8 Pro forged ahead with the 888+ in 2021.

The 10 might also stand to gain iQOO's latest fast-charging technology, rumored to outstrip others in late 2022. That may well be expected from a brand with a reputation for speeding ahead with cutting-edge specs year after year. All in all, it is to be hoped the 10 can launch outside China with its alleged new processor at the least.
