According to the report, which cites industry sources, the iQOO Z7 5G will launch in India sometime in March. The company is currently only considering releasing one Z7 model, though a Z7 Pro and a Z7 Lite model could be announced in the upcoming months.

The device’s design was teased on Twitter by iQOO India CEO Nipun Marya. The device shown in the image is hinted to look like the Vivo T1x, which made its debut in India last year. On the back, it will have a vertical camera module with the words “Photography High Definition” written on it, as well as a dual-LED flash. The iQOO logo will be located in the bottom center.
The teaser also confirms that the smartphone will have a dual camera setup on the back, with a 50MP main sensor that supports optical image stabilisation (OIS) and a secondary camera. The upcoming product is shown in the colour teal, and we can anticipate more options when it launches.
