Considering the features, and the kind of teasers the company has released, it seems that the handset could targeted at gamers and compete against smartphones like the Nubia Red Magic, Asus ROG Phone, Razer Phone and Xiaomi Black Shark.

The first handset from iQOO will be unveiled at an event in Shenzhen, March 1.
