The iQOO Z7 and Z7x have just been unveiled in China. Note that these are separate models from the Z7 5G, which launched in India last week. Also, there’s no Pro model (yet), but the vanilla Z7 has taken on some qualities of the Z6 Pro (it even beats it in some respects).

iQOO Z7x

The iQOO Z7x is more like the vanilla Z6. It uses the same Snapdragon 695 chipset with 6/8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128/256GB UFS 2.2 storage. And it does have a microSD slot for cards up to 1TB.

The battery grew both bigger and faster, it now has a capacity of 6,000mAh and charges at 80W (up from 5,000mAh/18W on the Z6). It’s not as fast as the Z7 battery, but some might prefer the extra capacity over the speed. And it’s not like this one is slow, it gets to 70% in 34 minutes. If you get it to 100%, it should last nearly 19 hours of watching videos.

Like its sibling, the x-phone has a 6.64” LCD (1,080 2,380px, 19.9:9 aspect ratio) with 120Hz refresh rate. This display covers the whole DCI-P3 gamut, but lacks HDR10.

Punch holed into the display is the 8MP selfie camera, the side-mounted fingerprint reader is still on board too. As for the rear camera, it has a 50MP sensor (f/1.8 lens, no OIS), plus a 2MP depth sensor.

The Bluetooth version is slightly older (v5.1), but you still get aptX Adaptive and LDAC support, plus a 3.5mm jack for fans of wired headphones.
