iQoo is gearing up to launch a new handset series in India. The company, part of the BBK Group that owns brands like Vivo, Oppo and Realme, has already announced it will launch the iQoo 7 series in partnership with Amazon India. Ahead of the official launch, a new report says the iQoo 7 will be a different model from its China counterpart.
According to Gizmochina, iQoo 7 in India will be a rebranded iQoo Neo 5. The report also pointed out that the Neo 5 was recently spotted on India’s BIS certification website. An official teaser also confirms the iQoo 7 will run Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 870 processor. Earlier, it had said that the other model in the new lineup, iQoo 7 Legend, would run on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 SoC.
That said, iQoo Neo 5 had launched in China last month. The handset comes with a 6.62-inch OLED panel with Full HD+ resolution and HDR 10+ support. It also has a 120Hz refresh rate.
