iQOO 7 Legend design teased officially, confirms BMW M Motorsport edition ahead India launch

Highlights
  • iQOO 7 Legend design has been teased via a new YouTube video.
  • iQOO 7 Legend is the BMW M Motorsport variant that was launched in China.
  • The smartphone will launch in India by the end of April.

We learned about several iQOO 7 Legend specifications a few days ago. It was also tipped that the smartphone coming to India was none other than the iQOO 7 BMW M Motorsport variant that was launched in China. iQOO 7 Legend India launch is expected soon, although an exact date is unknown at this point. iQOO Director Gagan Arora sat down with popular YouTuber Technical Guruji and talked at length about iQOOs past, present, and future plans. We also got a glimpse at the iQOO 7 Legend’s design and colour variant.

As you can see in the thumbnail above, the iQOO 7 Legend will come with a white back, with multi-coloured stripes running along its length, confirming it is the BMW M Motorsport edition. Its triple camera array has prominent iQOO branding underneath, right next to what appears to be the LED flash module. Unfortunately, we don’t get to see the front of the smartphone, but it will probably be identical to that of the regular iQOO 7.

Another focal point of the discussion was the iQOO 7 Legend price in India, which is teased to be below Rs 40,000. Given the hardware that it packs, we’re probably looking at a price tag of Rs 39,999 for the base variant. Higher-specced models could cost more, though. Gagan also teased an ‘end of April’ launch date for the iQOO 7 Neo. It is quite clear that the iQOO 7 plans to take on the OnePlus 9R and Vivo X60 in the sub-Rs 40,000 segment, with specifications that are on par with the OnePlus 9 and Vivo X60 Pro+. One lucky person could even win one iQOO 7 Legend smartphone by following the instructions detailed in the video.
