The Chinese multinational smartphone brand and manufacturer iQoo has revealed that the iQoo 8 will have a Samsung E5 display with 2K resolution.

The flagship is said to be the first smartphone in the world to have Samsung’s next-generation display. The iQoo 8 was rumored to have a 2K AMOLED display earlier this month.

The E5 display on the iQoo 8 will have a pixel density of 517ppi and will be capable of producing up to a billion colors, according to the teaser, which also shows the smartphone from its top side. The teaser image also clearly shows the upcoming smartphone’s hole-punch display design.

Aside from the improved display, the iQoo 8 is said to include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888+ SoC, 12GB of RAM, and 256GB of internal storage. The phone is also believed to be run by OriginOS 1.0, which is based on Android 11.

Further, the new display is expected to provide a better user experience than the 6.62-inch full-HD+ (1,080 x 2,400 pixels) AMOLED display found in the iQoo 7.

The iQoo 8 will be launched on August 17 in China. However, the business is expected to showcase some of the smartphone’s important features in the coming days.

Samsung previously delivered its E4 AMOLED display, which was utilized in the Asus ZenFone 8, Black Shark 4, Mi 11 Ultra, Mi 11i, and Realme GT Master Edition, among other high-end smartphones.

Vivo’s sibling iQoo, on the other hand, appears to be taking on the existing top-end models with the iQoo 8, which features the next-generation E5 display.
