The official Weibo channel of the iQOO announced that the sales of iQOO 7 ended this morning. Not surprisingly, the current sales of the phone have exceeded 200 million yuan ($30.89 million).
Reasons Behind Success of iQOO 7
On January 11, iQOO held a new product launch conference and officially released the new handset iQOO 7. The latter has three color options: Latent Blue, Black Realm and Legendary Edition. The 8+128GB variant costs 3798 yuan ($586), while the 12+256GB model comes at 4198 yuan ($648).
The iQOO 7 uses marine aluminum as the middle frame material, which has better corrosion resistance and toughness. It comes with a glass back cover using the new AG technology and has a thickness of 0.6mm.
On the front, the iQOO 7 uses a 120Hz full-sensing screen, with a 1000Hz instant touch sampling rate and a 300Hz touch reporting rate. It also supports four refresh rate application scenarios. The maximum brightness can reach 1300 nits and it supports 4096 levels of brightness adjustment. The phone also comes with SGS low blue light and HDR10+ high dynamic range certifications.
Another selling points of this handset are the under-screen dual-control pressure sensing, dual-line motor, and dual speakers to form a full-sensing control system. Among them, the dual-control pressure sensitivity under the screen can map the two operating areas of the screen to any position in the game according to the user’s preferences; the dual-line motor supports two vibration units to build a sense of orientation and layering of vibration; the loudness of dual speakers is as high as 71.5dB.
iQOO stated that it worked with Tencent, Qualcomm, and China Academy of Information and Communications Technology to develop game voice technology standards. As a result, it is the first to release a game voice optimization technology. The iQOO 7 is equipped with CS43131 processing chip and also has two small Sony gold standards.
As for gaming, it’s considered to be the official KPL game machine. And the iQOO 7 brings a brand new game box and a stronger Monster mode.
It is worth mentioning that all iQOO 7 series handsets come standard with a 120W FlashCharge technology. It can charge to 100% in 15 minutes. At the same time, the iQOO 7 comes standard with a 120W charger, compatible with the 65W PD protocol. The length of the charging cable reaches 1.5 meters.
Inside, the iQOO 7 sports a 4096 square millimetre heating plate. The internal heating plate adopts a power pump with a “spiral braided wire” structure. The latter can reduce the temperature of the whole machine and still have a good grip during games.
iQOO 7 uses the “horizontal full-scenario antenna” and an additional antenna outlet. Its Wi-Fi 6 has also been upgraded to the “enhanced version”. The maximum theoretical download rate has been increased to twice that of iQOO 5.
Under the hood, the iQOO 7 hosts the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor. It comes with an enhanced LPDDR5 memory and enhanced UFS 3.1 storage, and supports Multi-Turbo 5.0.
The iQOO 7 sports a 48-megapixel high-definition main camera, with a 120-degree field of view.
