The iQOO 7 was the cheapest phone to launch with the top-end Snapdragon 888 SoC on its Chinese-market launch. Now, the OEM has announced that it will venture into its first international market soon. It will be joined by a "new" vanilla variant with a different processor in India later in April 2021.

iQOO has officially announced that it will indeed launch the 7 in India on April 26, 2021. Not only that, but the heretofore standalone phone morphs into a series for its new market. The brand will sell a 7 and a 7 Legend in the country.

The latter's new name might imply that it has the same specs as the phone's top-end BMW-branded variant. However, it may simply be its base model with a motorsport-themed rear panel instead. Nevertheless, it is still slated to rock the Snapdragon 888 that drove the 7 to the top of the benchmarking charts on its initial release.

iQOO now teases the 7 Legend as the 2021 Android flagship with the largest thermal-management solution by surface area on its Amazon.in preview page. It apparently consists of "liquid cooling" - which translates to a copper pipe paired to a vapor chamber of no less than 4096 millimeters squared (mm2) in size. Hopefully, this will be enough to keep the 888's by-now notorious tendency to overheat in check.

The "Indian iQOO 7", on the other hand, is now hyped as a Snapdragon 870 device. This has led to widespread speculation that it is in fact a rebranded Neo5, which launched as a well-priced premium mid-ranger in its native China. Either way, it is touted to come with a dedicated display chip for MEMC and to extrapolate SDR content to HDR.

On that note, the new iQOO 7 series is shaping up to be competitive in terms of price as well as gaming features. Its OEM has suggested that it will start at INR 31990 (~US$429) on its April 26, 2021 release via Amazon.

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.
