Vivo and iQOO are preparing to launch the Vivo X100 series and iQOO 12 lineup in China. Chinese tipsters have revealed the expected launch dates for both series.
The iQOO 12 series is now set to launch in China in early November, aligning with the Double Eleven sales event on November 11. The Vivo X100 series will debut shortly after Double Eleven.
In addition, another leaker has voiced doubt about Vivo’s X100 series launching in early November, suggesting that aligning with Double Eleven may be challenging. The iQOO 12 series will be primarily available online in time for Double Eleven, while the X100 series will follow after this event. It is also rumored that the iQOO 12 (not the Pro variant) will debut in India in the same month.
iQOO 12 and 12 Pro are two Snapdragon 8 Gen 3-powered devices in the iQOO 12 lineup. Qualcomm is expected to unveil the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 at its upcoming Snapdragon Summit event in 2023. According to reports, Xiaomi will launch the first smartphone powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. Xiaomi 14 and 14 Pro may become official on October 27, according to reports.
