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.

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.
