The device also seems to have thick bezels, mostly noticeable at the bottom. The size of the screen isn’t confirmed yet but it is expected to be as large as the iQOO Z6’s panel.

By offering a notch panel, iQOO puts itself in line with Samsung. Samsung at a similar range offers a notch disply. It appears that not all iQOO fans have liked the approach of going with a notch display with the iQOO Z7 5G.

Previous leaks have suggested that the device may come with an LCD panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. But there are chances that it may also get an AMOLED panel, that said, let’s wait for the brand to confirm itself.

As for cameras, the device may have a dual camera or triple camera system with a 64MP main lens. The main lens will support OIS (Optical Image Stabilization). For the unversed, similarly priced phones (Rs 20,000 to Rs 30,000 range) lately have this feature in common.

Coming to performance, there’s a bit of confusion. 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.

iQOO revealed its AnTuTu scores recently and it scored 480,000+ points. The device is expected to have 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

In terms of battery, the device may pack a big battery with fast charging support. It is said to boot on Android 13 OS with FuntouchOS 13 on top.
