According to the leaked specifications, iQOO 7 5G will sport an FHD+ display, 4,000mAh battery, 5G support, and 120W fast-charging speed, which should be the key highlight of the phone. iQOO 7 is the official phone for the KPL (King Pro League), an eSports event in China that will be held in the autumn and spring seasons. Unfortunately, that’s pretty much all we know so far about the smartphone at the moment, but since the iQOO 7 launch is inching close, it shouldn’t be long before more information surfaces.

Separately, DigitalChatStation on Weibo recently claimed iQOO is planning to launch 3-4 new phones powered by the Snapdragon 888 SoC before the Spring Festival in China, which lasts until February 12th, 2021. Since the company hasn’t announced it officially at the moment, we suggest you take it with a pinch of salt.
