The upcoming vivo IQOO Pro 5G gaming phone will feature the Snapdragon 855+ SoC, the company just confirmed via its Weibo account. The phone is scheduled to debut on August 22 and will reportedly boast faster performance than other competing Snapdragon 855+ powered devices.
While it remains to be seen how IQOO team plans on accomplishing this, it will probably rely on some software tweaks similar to Huawei’s GPU Turbo.
In the meantime the phone also appeared in a TENAA listing reveling the rest of the spec sheet. The display of the IQOO Pro 5G is a 6.41-inch AMOLED panel with FHD+ resolution and an in-display fingerprint sensor. Around the back, the phone will feature a 48MP, 13 MP and 12 MP triple camera array, while the selfie shooter is 12MP.
The listing also confirms the Snapdragon 855+ chipset clocked at 2.96GHz alongside up to 12 GB RAM and 512 GB storage. The dimensions of the phone are 158.7×75.7×9.3(mm) and it weighs 217 grams.
The battery capacity is 4,410mAh and there's support for 44W fast charging. On the software front, the device will ship with Android 9 Pie.

This 5G race is just stupid. Too expensive right now to have a 5G phone and not many places have 5G connectivity yet. Here in Slovakia maybe in 2022 we will have 5G not before.
Does it have USB 3 and video-out over USB-C ? It's a gaming phone so it should but even flagship Vivo Nex S looks to have USB 2 and no video-out
