iQOOhad already revealed the launch date of the iQOO 7 series on April 26. The series will include iQOO 7 and iQOO 7 Legend. A recent promotional image from Amazon shows both the phone in it and it clearly represents the iQOO Neo 5 that was launched in China last month and the iQOO 7 Legend. This is giving a clear hint that iQOO 7 will be the rebranded version of iQOO Neo 5 (China).
The specifications of iQOO Neo 5 are really good to be the vanilla version of this flagship series. Most of the other brands are launching their flagship series with such diversity ranging among the various models.
