Rumor | iQOO will debut the Dimensity 9000 Plus processor in the upcoming 10-series flagship smartphones
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.
