iQoo U1x Specifications
Going by the leaks revealed, the iQOO U1x is expected to come with a 6.52-inch LCD panel with HD+ resolution. The phone comes with a side-mounted physical fingerprint sensor is a clear giveaway to the fact that the phone will not come with an AMOLED panel.
The listing reveals that the phone will be powered by a snapdragon 662 SoC coupled with 4 or 6GB of RAM. In terms of storage, you will get 64GB and 128GB onboard storage options. A 5000 mAh battery will power the device as per the listing, though there is no clarification yet around the presence of fast charging of any sorts on the phone.
In terms of optics, the iQOO U1x will have a triple rear camera setup, however, there will be a 13-megapixel primary and a couple of 2-megapixel sensors assigned to handle depth sensing and shooting macro images. A selfie camera is housed in a waterdrop notch on the front.
This mid-segment phone will be available in a couple of colour options - Black and White.
The listing on both JD.com and Tmall also has pricing attached to it, however, it is just a placeholder. No wat a phone powered by Snapdragon 662 will get a launch price of RMB 9999. Hence we need to wait for the official launch to get clarity around the pricing. Its global availability is unclear at this point.
