The main sensor will be a 50-megapixel sensor while the secondary will be a 48-megapixel sensor with an ultra-wide-angle lens. Details for the third sensor have not been shared yet. The camera samples are for the iQoo 8 Pro and they show a white lizard on a branch with a black background. It shows deep blacks and sharp contrast between the colours. iQoo said the camera setup includes OIS with five-axis anti-shake micro-head (translated) stabilising feature.
As for the specifications, a tipster with the pseudonym Panda is Bald (translated) shared on Weibo that the vanilla iQoo 8 will feature a 10-bit 1080p display. It is said to pack a triple rear camera setup that includes a 48-megapixel Sony IMX598 sensor and two 13-megapixel sensors. It may be backed by a 4,350mAh battery that supports 120W fast charging.
