In collaboration with Amazon India, iQoo is preparing to launch the iQoo 7 collection. The vanilla iQOO 7 and iQOO 7 Legend, which were developed in collaboration with BMW M Motorsport, will be published.
Both of these smartphones were previously released in China and were planned to be released in India with similar specifications. However, according to a preview on Amazon, the iQOO 7 for India may be a rebranded iQOO Neo 5 that was recently released in China.
According to the Amazon listing, the iQOO 7 will be fuelled by the Snapdragon 870 SoC, which is the same as the iQoo Neo 5. In China, the Snapdragon 888 SoC powers the iQoo 7. Furthermore, the listing depicts the iQoo 7 with a rear camera setup similar to the iQoo Neo 5.
The iQoo 7 Legend is expected to be the most affordable Snapdragon 888 handset, with a price tag of less than Rs 40,000. It will only allow 66W rapid charging, as opposed to 120W in the Chinese model.
