The company earlier shared a teaser image of iQOO 7 BMW M variant, which will sport BMW M Motorsports tri-color streaks running from top to bottom. The back cover looks similar to iQOO 5 Pro Legendary Edition, which is made of white leather with BMW M colours. Notably, iQOO is the global partner of BMW M Motorsport division.

IQOO previously revealed that the iQOO 7 will be the official machine for KPL (King Pro League), which is an esports gaming event held in China twice a year. The iQOO 7 will sport three cameras at the back, which will be placed in a triangular formation inside a square camera module. The dual LED flash unit and iQOO branding will be placed one below another right below the camera module.
Apart from this, there is little information about the specifications of the upcoming device. The iQOO 7 will succeed the iQOO 5 series which was launched in August this year with two smartphones – iQOO 5 and iQOO 5 Pro. It is unclear if a Pro variant for iQOO 7 will launch as well at the January 11 event.
At this point, it is difficult to say whether iQOO 7 will be announced for the Indian market as well given its predecessor, which was unveiled in China in August this year, has not yet been launched in India. Both iQOO 5 and iQOO 5 Pro are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor and support 5G.
IQOO 5 Pro gets a triple rear camera system, a combination of a 50-megapixel Samsung GN1 sensor, a 13-megapixel ultra-wide camera, and a 13-megapixel 5X optical periscope camera.
