The iQoo Neo 7 5G is now available for purchase in India. The iQoo Neo 7 is the follow-up to last year’s sub-Rs. 30,000 iQoo Neo 6 (Review), another premium mid-ranger from the Vivo offshoot brand. The iQoo Neo 7 5G boasts a number of improvements over its forerunner, including a 120Hz AMOLED display, a 4nm MediaTek CPU, a larger battery, and quicker charging. While a triple-camera configuration remains, there is a significant drawback to this year’s model. Here in this review, we’ll go through the pros and cons of the iQoo Neo 7 5G so you can make an informed decision about whether or not to purchase one.
Cost of the iQoo Neo 7 5G in India
Both 32GB and 64GB versions of the iQoo Neo 7 5G are now available in the country of India. This phone comes standard with 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB of UFS 3.1 storage in the basic model. You can get this model for Rs. 29,999. The model provided to us by iQoo includes 12GB of LPDDR5 Memory and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. In India, you can get one for Rs. 33,999.
Construction and screen resolution of the iQoo Neo 7 5G
The iQoo Neo 7 5G has a curved rear panel and frame, which is unusual for a smartphone nowadays because most phones have flat backs. Despite its polycarbonate construction, the phone offers a premium feel. Our Frost Blue paint offers a matte finish that resists fingerprints and smudges. As much as I like the Interstellar Black choice, I’ve come to appreciate the Frost Blue shade as well. This phone has a high-end appearance thanks to the gradient that is revealed when light strikes the back panel.
The iQoo Neo 7 5G weighs 193 grammes and is 8.58 millimetres in thickness. The iQoo Neo 7 5G’s primary display is a tall 6.78 inches. The iQoo 7 5G’s display is the same size as that of the high-end iQoo 11 5G (Review), but its resolution is full HD+, and it supports a refresh rate of 120 frames per second. The screen itself is flush, and the borders around it are barely noticeable. The iQoo 7 5G has a screen-to-body ratio of 93.11 percent with a chin that is 2.65 millimetres in thickness.
Netflix has identified HDR10+ and WideVine L1 support on the screen. The sound is quite powerful, and the visuals are vibrant, making for a satisfying multimedia experience. An obvious volume disparity exists between the bottom speaker and the earpiece, which serves as an alternative output. Using the iQoo 7 5G outside, in the bright sunshine, presented no problems for me. The maximum brightness of the screen is 1300 nits, although this is only reached when HDR material is being shown.
Features and software for the iQoo Neo 7 5G
A MediaTek Dimensity 8200 SoC, built using a 4nm technology, powers the iQoo 7 5G. The Mali G610 GPU can reach speeds of up to 3.1GHz on the SoC at its peak. In India, eight different 5G bands are support. In addition, the device allows for the allocation of 8GB of storage for use as Extended RAM. There’s Bluetooth 5.3 and dual-band Wi-Fi. This phone has a 5000 mAh battery and can be quickly charged with the accompanying 120W charger.
