iQOO 7 key specifications confirmed via pre-order listing; live image reveals design

Highlights
  • iQOO 7 specifications mentioned in the listing include 120W charging, 5G, LPDDR5 RAM, UFS 3.1 storage, and Snapdragon 888 SoC
  • iQOO 7 live images show a ridged plastic back and three rear cameras
  • The smartphone will be launched in China on January 11th

The iQOO 7 specifications and design have leaked online ahead of the smartphone’s January 11th launch. The new information about the iQOO 7 specifications comes as Chinese e-commerce website JD.com has started taking pre-orders for the handset. This listing confirms the 120W fast-charging that has been rumoured for the smartphone and reveals some other hardware we can expect to see at launch. A separately leaked live image has given us a pretty good look at the iQOO 7 design. To recall, iQOO 7 will be the brand’s Snapdragon 888-powered flagship handset that will succeed the iQOO 5 in the lineup.

iQOO 7 specifications

The pre-order listing on JD.com shows that the iQOO 7 specifications will include Snapdragon 888 SoC, 5G support, and 120W storage. It also confirms the smartphone will feature LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage, which are the fastest in the industry at the moment. An AnTuTu screenshot last week showed that the smartphone will pack 12GB of RAM and 256GB in-built storage, though there may be other configurations as well.

Other previously leaked iQOO 7 specifications include the likes of FHD+ display, 120Hz refresh rate, 4,000mAh battery, Adreno 660 GPU, and Android 11 operating system.

While most iQOO 7 specifications are unknown, a leaked real-life photo (via Gizmochina) gives us a rough idea about what the smartphone could have in store for us. A cursory glance at the back panel reveals that the iQOO 7 will come with three rear cameras and a ridged texture. While that might not help the phone’s aesthetics, it should allow users to get a better grip on the device. Furthermore, the material used is very likely plastic, so the iQOO 7 can, on paper, survive a drop or two and escape unscathed.

If previous releases are anything to go by, the iQOO 7 may be joined by an iQOO 7 Pro. It will, in all likelihood, feature better cameras, and a larger screen, among other things. We learned earlier that there is a special BMW Edition in the works too. It is hard to speculate when the IQOO 7 will be launched in India, as the company has not made its predecessor — iQOO 5 — available in the country yet.
