We haven’t been hearing much from iQOO India since the launch of iQOO 3 in the country. Meanwhile, the Chinese branch has been adding a set of competitive smartphones to its portfolio. One of the latest hits introduced by iQOO was the iQOO 7. The device is a flagship full of interesting features and has been released in the company’s domestic market a couple of months ago. Now, a new report indicates that iQOO fans in India will finally get the Snapdragon 888-powered iQOO 7.
iQOO India Director, Gagan Ororo, took it to Twitter to share a teaser. The post is quite cryptic, but if we’re interpreting it correctly it teases the launch of the new iQOO 7 in the competitive market.
