Highlights

  • iQOO 7 is likely to launch this month.
  • Snapdragon 888 SoC will power it.
  • It will be a 5G compatible device.

iQOO is gearing up to launch a new affordable flagship smartphone in India. This device called the iQOO 7 has already made it to China, helping us with plenty of details about this smartphone.

iQOO has been continuously teasing this device via its Twitter handle. A couple of weeks ago, the brand teased a picture of the Snapdragon 888 with the price tag of Rs 3X990, so it's safe to predict that the smartphone will be priced under Rs 40,000 in India.

Even the Chinese variant of iQOO 7 ships with a Snapdragon 888 leads us to believe that all other specs will be similar. As far as the Chinese variant is concerned, it features a 6.62 inch 120Hz AMOLED panel, Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon 888 SoC and a 48-megapixel triple camera setup on the rear.

Now that the smartphone is expected to go official this month, we decided to stack up everything we know about the iQOO 7.

iQOO 7 specs and features

--The iQOO 7 is being offered in three different finishes, with one designed in partnership with BMW M Motorsport. Looking at the pictures, the design of the iQOO 7 doesn't seem fresh. It features a square camera module with a triple camera setup and a flash that's stacked in the module itself.

--The smartphone comes in Black, Latent Blue, and Legendary Edition colour options in China.

--There's a centred punch-hole display with minimal bezels on top and both sides on the front, but there's a little chin on the bottom, though.

--Also, there's a little confusion around the name of the device. Some reports suggest that the device will be called iQOO 7, while some claim it could launch as iQOO 7 Legend. However, a credible tipster hints that the BMW M Motorsport version will be called iQOO 7 Legend.

--Moving forward to the specs of this device, the iQOO 7 should ship with the same hardware inside as its Chinese version. So, the iQOO 7 should sport a 6.62 inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh.

iQOO 7 teased

--The iQOO 7 will be powered by Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon 888 chipset, which powers flagship devices like the OnePlus 9, Vivo X60 Pro+, Redmi K40 Pro, Asus ROG 5 and more. For your information, it is an octa-core chipset clocked built on a 5nm manufacturing process. This chipset is clocked at 2.84GHz and supports both 5G and WiFi 6 bands.

--The chipset should be paired with 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage.

--In the camera department, the iQOO 7 is powered by a triple rear camera setup that consists of a 48-megapixel primary sensor, a 13-megapixel ultra-wide shooter and finally, a 13-megapixel portrait camera. On the front, there's a 16-megapixel camera for selfies.

--The iQOO 7 will be running Android 11 with Origin OS on top. Apart from this, the connectivity options on the device include 5G, 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth v5.2, GPS/ A-GPS, NFC, and a USB Type-C port.

--It also features an in-display fingerprint scanner for authentication. Finally, the iQOO 7 is powered by a 4000mAh battery to support a whopping 120W fast charging.
