The iQOO 7 Legend has been kitted out with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G mobile platform, combined with an enhanced LPDDR5 flash drive for faster sequential read and write speed, resulting in quick app calling and caching capabilities for users along with more efficient power consumption. Meanwhile, the iQOO 7 is equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 and an intelligent display chip, providing powerful CPU and GPU performance for more smooth visual effects and vivid colours.

Both smartphones also feature enhanced V6 UFS 3.1 memory chip, which has been further enhanced for faster file downloads, copies and installations. iQOO has also incorporated the Extended RAM function within the iQOO 7 series, as 3GB of ROM have been re-allocated to be added upon 8GB of RAM, allowing apps to run simultaneously with minimal lag and sufficient storage space.

Supported by 66W FlashCharge technology, the iQOO 7 series allows for greatly reduced charging times to satisfy the fast-paced lifestyles of modern day smartphone users. On the battery front, the iQOO 7 Legend comes with a 4000mAH Typ battery, while the iQOO 7 sports a 4400mAH Typ battery, resulting in unrestrained device power and longevity.

Cooling system

The iQOO 7 series houses a Liquid Cooling System, designed with cutting-edge materials that efficiently dissipate heat through the evaporation and condensation of thermal fluids within the internal vapour chamber. This system can counteract intense temperature build-ups and negate the increased power consumption that can arise from heavy-duty loads, effectively avoiding the CPU frequency reduction to maintain consistent high-performance device output. Frame drop issues will no longer be a concern for users, bringing a smoother mobile gaming and smartphone usage experience.
