iQOO Z7 Pro 5G Expected Specifications and Features 

Now that we have given you the launch date and expected price of the iQOO Z7 Pro, it is time to take a closer look at the expected features and specifications of the upcoming iQOO phone. 

3D Curved Display 

iQOO Z7 Pro 5G teasers have confirmed one thing and that is the 3D curved display that will be one of the highlights of the phone. Traditionally offered on a premium device, you tend to see the curved nature now coming to phones in the mid-range bracket, and the Z7 Pro 5G will be one of them once it launches this week.

The AMOLED display will offer a 120Hz refresh rate, as mentioned in the teasers and the screen will come with 1300 nits of peak brightness, which is hard to find in this range. Having the front camera within the centre cutout adds further premiums to the device. 

Segment-Leading Dimensions 

iQOO Z7 Pro 5G promises to be one of the lighter phones in this segment, in fact, the company claims it will have segment-first numbers. The company’s teaser on suggests the Z7 Pro 5G will come with a thickness of 7.36mm and weighs 175 grams, which is claimed to be the thinnest and lightest in the Rs 25K segment. Having a light body makes it easy to hold the phone and the sleek dimensions further embellish the premium nature of the device that iQOO is bringing to the market. 

Going For Power 

The Z7 Pro 5G will also be a performance-centric device and that has been assured with the use of the 2nd gen TSMC 4nm process chip from MediaTek which is the Dimensity 7200.

Having this SoC not only helps iQOO deliver on the performance front but also offers power efficiency that helps with managing the battery life of the phone, no matter what size iQOO opts for the device.

The latest benchmark tests have shown the MediaTek chip to be head and shoulders above the other chips used in this segment, and that suggests iQOO might have a winner on its hands. 

Other Specifications and Features 

iQOO Z7 Pro is likely to get a 6.74-inch screen and the chip should be offered with up to 12GB RAM and 256GB storage. iQOO will continue to rely on the Funtouch OS 13 version for its device and pack it with some of its features.

For imaging purposes, the Z7 Pro is tipped to get a 64MP main camera at the back with OIS and LED flash. It will also have a 2MP macro shooter to complete the dual camera system.

The Z7 Pro should offer Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.3 for connectivity thanks to the chipset being used, while the phone is expected to pack a 4600mAh battery but with 66W charging speed. Being an AMOLED display means you should get it with an in-display fingerprint sensor for security.
