The first iQOO smartphone will have a decent battery of 4,000mAh capacity. The handset is believed to feature 44W FlashCharge technology, something similar to OPPO’s Super VOOC technology. The 4D shockproof feature hints that it could be a gaming smartphone if it’s not obvious already with the high-end specification of the phone.
