iQOO is a premium sub-brand of the smartphone OEM Vivo. It launched the Snapdragon 865-powered 5 series in 2020. Now, there is an indication that these devices will get successors called the 7s. They may reprise iQOO's 120 watt (W) FlashCharge technology.

iQOO launched one of the more interesting lines of flagship-grade phones in 2020. The 5 series offered the Snapdragon 865 processor, first-gen 120W charging and BMW-themed special editions. It will be interesting to see if all of these translate to their alleged 7-series successors.

The first alleged evidence of their existence has come in the form of what is being described as an offline promotional poster for the 7. Despite this, however, it looks much more like a hand-written note referring to its main specs.

It is written (almost definitely not printed) in Chinese, yet distinctly integrates the numbers 120 and 888. This, therefore, hints at the presence of the Snapdragon 888 processor and at the brand's fastest form of charging technology.

The alleged upcoming phone is also rumored to have a new form of Android based on Vivo's OriginOS. Therefore, should this new leak prove genuine, this "iQOO 7" might prove a worthy challenger to the freshly-launched Mi 11.
