It was only a few days ago that Vivo announced its own sub-brand, iQOO. And although there was no phone shown during the announcement, word is that iQOO’s first device could be a futuristic phone with a foldable screen.
Images from Chinese social media illustrate a tall device with a display that folds outward, splitting it into two and making them accessible on the outside while folded. It will play the role of a tablet-like device when not folded.

Based on the renders, the iQOO foldable phone might not have any ports and physical buttons at all, just like the Vivo APEX 2019, though it is probably still too early to tell. Recent developments seem to indicate that the industry is moving toward all-screen devices with a bendable display and zero holes.

The specs are unknown at this point, but reports say that the iQOO foldable smartphone could be priced more than $1,000 (around P52,320). That is understandable, especially if it will come with a top-shelf Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and 5G capabilities.
We have not heard anything much from the Vivo subsidiary, but if these images are accurate, don’t be surprised if iQOO quickly becomes a brand to watch moving forward.
