The iQOO 7 houses a 6.62-inch AMOLED screen with Full HD+ resolution, a 20:9 aspect ratio, HDR10+, 100 percent DCI-P3 colour gamut, and a 120Hz refresh rate. It is the first iQOO smartphone to run Android 11. Moreover, the OS is overlaid with the company’s recently introduced UI called OriginOS.

The iQOO 7 runs the Snapdragon 888 mobile platform with up to 12GB of enhanced LPDDR5 RAM. The phone is equipped with up to 257GB of enhanced UFS 3.1 native storage but lacks a microSD card slot.

The iQOO 7 draws power from a 4,500mAh dual-cell battery. The company claims that the phone can fully charge in around 15 minutes. For heat dissipation and regulating the internal temperature, the iQOO 7 is equipped with VC liquid cooling technology.

A selfie is a 16-megapixel unit. Its rear camera setup not only looks like the Vivo X60, but also bears the same configurations. However, the only major difference is that the iQOO 7 does not feature the micro-gimbal OIS setup that is found on the X60. The rear-mounted camera system of the iQOO 7 consists of an OIS assisted 48-megapixel Sony IMX589 as the main camera, a 13-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a 13-megapixel depth sensor.

The iQOO 7 is equipped with an in-display fingerprint scanner and face unlock for security. The performance-centric smartphone comes with connectivity options such as dual-SIM support, 5G, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, dual-frequency GPS, dual linear motors for in-game vibrations, dual speakers for stereo output, and USB Type-C. The handset lacks a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The iQOO 7 has arrived in two variants such as 8GB RAM + 128GB storage and 12GB RAM + 256GB storage in China. These options are priced at RMB 3,798 (~Rs 43,00), and RMB 4,198 (~Rs 47,600). It comes in black, blue and white (Legendary Edition) colour variants. The latter features a leather rear with red, black, and blue stripes and is designed in partnership with BMW. Since the company had unveiled iQOO 3 in India in Q1 last year, there are chances that the iQOO 7 might land in the country as well.
