The iQOO Z8 was expected to arrive in September, but the company has announced the smartphone will actually be unveiled on August 31.

The photo and video teasers shared by iQOO revealed the Z8’s design and color options. The smartphone will sport a dual camera setup on the rear, with the primary camera having OIS.

iQOO also revealed that the Z8 will support 120W charging, and it will have a 3.5mm headphone jack on top, joined by what’s seemingly the IR Blaster. It will feature a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.

The iQOO Z8 will be unveiled on August 31 in China at 7PM local time, but you can expect the brand to reveal more about the phone in the lead-up to the event to build hype around it. The Z8x will also be launched at the same event, but iQOO hasn’t divulged much about it yet.

On the same day, at a separate event, iQOO will launch the iQOO Z7 Pro 5G in India. We got to spend some time with it this past weekend in Goa, India, where we managed to capture quick photos and videos. You can check our iQOO Z7 Pro 5G’s camera samples here.
