It’s been more than a year since we last saw an iQOO smartphone in India. Well, some recent reports suggest that the brand is prepping for the two new launches namely iQOO 7 and iQOO Neo 5. The two phones have been spotted on the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) website that strongly indicates the launch is imminent.
Though the company has not made any official announcement yet there have been some hints of the same. Lately, iQOO India director Gagan Arora posted a cryptic message on Twitter around the number 7. And now this BIS certification of two iQOO devices with model numbers – I2009 and I2011. Of the two, the former is expected to be iQOO 7 while the latter to be iQOO Neo 5.
Also, iQOO 7 has appeared on the benchmark listing site Geekbench last month scoring 1130 points in single-core and 3690 points in multi-core tests. However, both the iQOO 7 and iQOO Neo had earlier launched in China and hence we know quite a lot about their specs.
