Owners of the iQOO 7 are now being invited to join an official beta program for this phone's first-ever publicly-available build of Android 12. The Snapdragon 888-powered flagship is thus now touted as the first Chinese-market phone to reach this stage of testing. It may be able to use this OS' latest and most cutting-edge features as a result.

Vivo's high-end sub-brand iQOO launched a flagship phone that flew past rivals such as the Xiaomi Mi 11 in terms of benchmarks shortly after its launch. Now, the brand has brushed its competition in China aside once again by being the first to offer places in a public beta-test for Android 12 to the 7's users.

Those who own the device and would like to test the upcoming major upgrade to its OS can do so by filling out an online form to apply to the program. It contains questions indicating that iQOO is looking for those with prior experience and expertise as testers.

Successful applicants may thus get an extremely early sneak preview of what is probably the latest version of OriginOS for the iQOO 7. It may or may not contain new features such as auto-hibernate, pan-UI auto-translate and scrolling screenshots.

Meanwhile, there is no word on similar opportunities for those with the international variant of this phone. The iQOO 7 Legend is only available in India at present, and goes for INR 43,990 (~US$600) at present via Amazon.in.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
