iQOO launched the iQOO 8 series earlier this month that came with top-notch specifications. The phones arrived only in China at that time, however, an India launch for the iQOO 8 series has now been tipped.
As per tipster Debayan Roy on Twitter, the iQOO 8 series could launch in India as soon as next month. He says one can expect the devices to launch sometime in mid-September. IQOO brought the iQOO 7 series devices to India almost after three months when the phones were launched in China. So the launch for the iQOO 8 series in India is a bit quicker than how iQOO usually launches smartphones in other countries.
