Chinese smartphone maker Vivo has recently shown that it wants to expand its iQOO range outside the high-end category, releasing the new iQOO Z1 and iQOO U1 with mid-range chips and even more aggressive prices.
iQOO U1 5G appears on TENAA, a rebrand of the Vivo Y70?
Strangely, however, the iQOO U1 does not have 5G connectivity, despite having been launched on the Chinese market where the technology is rapidly developing. So now the company would be solving this "problem" with a device said to be the iQOO U1 5G. The smartphone would have appeared on the TENAA certification site with specifications and images.
The Chinese certificate does not reveal the chipset on the device but only that we have a CPU clocked at 2GHz. We could however assume that the chip on board is a MediaTek of the Dimensity 800 series. Having said that, looking at the images and the rest of the specifications, we can see that the iQOO U1 5G (officially listed as V2019A) looks a lot like Vivo's Y70 with chipset Exynos 880.
As for the specs, we have a 48 MP main camera, a secondary 8 MP camera and a 2 MP depth sensor. Other features include a 6,53-inch LCD display, a 4.500 mAh battery and support for fast charging with 18 W power. Also very similar here to the Vivo Y70.
