iQOO is preparing for the launch of the iQOO Z7 Pro smartphone in India, scheduled for August 31. Following the earlier teaser of the Blue Lagoon color variant, the brand has now unveiled another color option for the Z7 Pro called Graphite Matte.
This new color revelation strongly suggests that the device is a rebranded version of the Vivo S17e, which was initially launched in China earlier this year. This practice of releasing China-exclusive smartphones through sub-brands in global markets is a common strategy among Chinese smartphone manufacturers. With this context in mind, let’s explore the anticipated specifications of the smartphone.
The brand has already provided glimpses of several features of the upcoming smartphone, including its impressive AnTuTu benchmark score of over 720,000 points and the inclusion of up to 8GB of RAM. Additionally, the smartphone is confirmed to feature a curved display. With these official details in hand, let’s delve into the speculations.
Drawing from its likely identity as a rebranded Vivo S17e, the smartphone is expected to sport a 6.78-inch Full HD AMOLED display with a 20:9 aspect ratio, support for HDR10+, and a notable peak brightness of up to 1300 nits. The display’s maximum refresh rate is expected to reach 120Hz.
Regarding its camera capabilities, the smartphone could boast a 64MP primary camera equipped with optical image stabilization (OIS) and a 2MP depth sensor for enhanced photography. On the front, users can anticipate a 16MP selfie camera. Lastly, the smartphone is likely to house a 4600mAh battery paired with the advanced 66W fast charging technology for swift charging experiences.
