iQoo 8 will feature Samsung’s E5 display with 2K resolution, the Chinese company revealed through a teaser posted on Weibo on Wednesday. The flagship is claimed to be the world’s first smartphone to come with the next-generation Samsung display. Last month, the rumour mill suggested the presence of a 2K AMOLED display on the iQoo 8. The smartphone is also speculated to have a 120Hz variable refresh rate. The iQoo 8 will debut as the successor to the iQoo 7 that was launched in January.

However, Vivo sibling iQoo seems to be taking on the existing top-end models by bringing the iQoo 8 with the next-generation E5 display.

The new display is likely to deliver an upgraded user experience over the iQoo 7 that came with a 6.62-inch full-HD+ (1,080×2,400 pixels) AMOLED display.
