Smartphone brand iQOO seems all set to launch its first ever Snapdragon 888 smartphone in 2021. The device is set to launch on January 11. As per reports, there have also been some samples images posted on the official Weibo channel. Among other official posters, it has also been revealed that the iQOO 7 will feature the enhanced version of LPDDR5 RAM along with UFS 3.1 storage. In addition, all variants are set to support 120W fast charging tech, which is also something we have seen in Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra and Mi 11 smartphones. 

However, the latest piece of news comes from iQOO's Weibo post (via GizChina), stating that it will support dual pressure sensitive agile touch. What this means is that the handsets side bezels on top and bottom will be pressure sensitive. This will let you easily play games and get better control.

In case you are unaware, Asus ROG Phone 2 and last year's ROG Phone 3, both come with similar technologies for better gaming control.

As for the cameras, the iQOO 7 is set to feature three rear cameras and the module will be designed in a similar way as what we have seen with Vivo X50 and X60 smartphones. Lastly, as per the reports, iQOO 7 is set to come with the Vivo's new operating system OriginOS.

OriginOS was launched in November last year. One of the highlights of OriginOS is reimagined widgets. Similar to Apple's, the Android skin allows you to personalise widgets, like a sliding puzzle with different shapes. These widgets feature information from applications such as weather app, messaging app, and so on. OriginOS also has “nano alerts” to show notifications from an application featured in the widgets.
