iQOO has recently revealed the iQOO 7 smartphone in India. The device has arrived several months before in China, and for that reason, the company is already planning an iQOO 8 for its domestic market. As far as India is concerned, the company should keep focusing on the iQOO 7 sales at least until later this year. The gaming and hardware-focused smartphone were revealed in just two colorways – Solid Ice Blue and Storm. Now, the company is gearing up to unveil a new colorway in India. According to a report from 91Mobiles, the new iQOO 7 colorway will carry the Monster Orange name and will reach the country very soon.
The new Monster Orange will join the two available colorways on July 26. According to the 91Mobiles’ report, the new colorway will go on sale during the Amazon Prime Day sale on July 26 in India. Furthermore, the new colorway will launch in variants with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of Internal Storage, and in 8 GB of RAM and 256GB of Internal Storage. Still, the new option is identical to the other two in terms of specifications. Interestingly, the Orange colorway brings the “Monster” text on the back.

It takes up to 3 GB of your internal storage to use as virtual RAM. The smartphone also has a 4,400mAh battery with 66W fast-charging support.
Until the moment, the price tag for the Monster Orange variant is yet to be revealed. It could launch under the same price range of INR 31,990 (~$430) and INR 33,990 (~$456). However, we should wait for the official confirmation or more precisely for the launch day.
Worth noting, that the global iQOO 7 is basically a rebadged version of the Chinese iQOO Neo 5. The Chinese iQOO 7 that sports the Snapdragon 888 went official is iQOO 7 Legend.
