Merely hours after OnePlus launched the OnePlus 9 lineup, Vivo’s iQOO announced its plans to bring the iQOO 7 to India. Notably, the company says that it would price the device under Rs.40,000. Once available, the iQOO 7 could be the cheapest 5G phone in India to pack the Snapdragon 888 chipset.
Cheapest Snapdragon 888 Phone in India?
While iQOO has not explicitly mentioned the device name in its announcement tweet, it is safe to assume that the device in question is the iQOO 7. That’s because the company has already launched the device in China. The brand has not revealed the exact launch date yet, but we’ll be updating this post when they do.
