Starting with the display, the iQOO Z7 5G will feature an LCD display with an FHD+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. It will likely come with a dual or triple camera system having a 64MP main lens.

Since OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) is the trend right now, the Z7 5G will also feature OIS support. There will be a single camera on the front, but the exact lens isn’t confirmed yet.

There is a bit of confusion when it comes to the chipset of the phone. Some said it will be powered by a Snapdragon 778, while some say the same old Snapdragon 695 chip. However, since iQOO showcased the benchmark scores of the phone recently, it could be powered by a Dimensity 920 or Dimensity 930 SoC.

The device, by the way, scored 480,000+ points on AnTuTu. It is expected to be paired with at least 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

As for the battery, expect a big battery like its predecessor. To recall, the iQOO Z6 5G was launched with a 5,000mAh battery and had 18W fast charging. We can expect a similar battery and fast charging combination on the Z7 5G.

Lastly, the smartphone is expected to boot on Android 13 OS out of the box with FuntouchOS 13 on top.
