The iQoo 7 series is shaping up to be an interesting duo of high-end smartphones at a competitive price. A new development suggests that the standard iQoo 7 will be based on the Chinese iQoo Neo 5.
On April 26, the iQoo 7 Legend and iQoo 7 will launch in India as the company’s new flagship smartphones of the season. We already know that the former will be based on the Chinese iQoo 7 with the Snapdragon 888, 66W fast charging and a sub-Rs 40,000 price tag, and will take on the likes of the OnePlus 9, Vivo X60 Pro and Xiaomi Mi 11X Pro.

Amazon India’s landing page (opens in new tab) for the iQoo 7 is now live, revealing a familiar design and feature set. A closer look confirms that these are the same as that of the iQoo Neo 5, which was unveiled last month. Here’s everything we know about it.
The Indian iQoo 7 will be powered by the Snapdragon 870 chipset with a frequency of 3.2GHz. Interestingly, the company also claims that the phone will have a secondary “Intelligent display chip” which is claimed to increase the frame rate of content as well as upscale SDR to HDR visuals.
Other iQoo 7 specs include a 6.62-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, up to 1,000Hz od touch sampling, 1,300 nits of peak brightness, HDR10+ certification and more. There’s an in-display fingerprint scanner as well.
A 4,400mAh battery powers the iQoo 7, along with support for 66W flash charging. It is claimed to take only about 30 minutes for a full charge. For photography, there’s a triple camera array consisting of a 48MP primary camera (Sony IMX598), a 12MP ultra-wide lens and a 2MP depth sensor. For selfies, the device comes with a 16MP shooter.
iQoo 7 price in India is expected to be under Rs 30,000.
