The iQOO 7 series houses an industry-leading Liquid Cooling System, designed with cutting-edge materials that efficiently dissipate heat through the evaporation and condensation of thermal fluids within the internal vapor chamber. This intricate 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.
The Ultimate E-sports and Entertainment Machine
To provide an unparalleled experience to young and tech-savvy consumers in their relentless quest for passion, the iQOO 7 series is designed from the ground up for on-the-go gamers and revolutionizes the smartphone user experience to match professional e-sports standards.
For starters, an intelligent display chip has been embedded within the iQOO 7 to boost the display performance of popular mobile games. This advanced mobile display feature can holistically enhance the user entertainment experience with optimized clarity, color and motion for a higher dynamic range and higher frame rate. With this chip, the iQOO 7 can eliminate unintended blur and judder while preserving the effect of every intended in-game graphic and motion sequence.
Both the iQOO 7 Legend and the iQOO 7 utilize a full sensing screen with 120Hz refresh rate , 2 which can be revved-up to a groundbreaking 1000Hz sampling rate with 300Hz report rate by using the new Super Touch Acceleration function. The feature allows users to experience an ultra-high refresh rate with advanced screen touch response, gaining a distinct edge with smooth gameplay. In competitive scenarios where every movement is crucial to coming out on top, this minimal touch latency can create a faster operational advantage for users to put their skills on display and out-maneuver opponents effortlessly.
The iQOO 7 series touts an impressive array of immersive features that can get user's hearts pumping. At the top of the line, the iQOO 7 Legend contains Monster Touch, which has been refined to now be implemented under the screen with dual-control and pressure-sensitive digital buttons. This custom setting enables faster and more ergonomic gaming, allowing two fingers to accomplish what four fingers previously could in games such as Free Fire and Call of Duty.
For a more realistic feel, the Monster Engine Dual-Linear Motors are present on the left and right sides of the iQOO 7 Legend device body to achieve dynamic vibration. This 4D vibration can simulate actions across many gaming or entertainment scenarios – including weapon recoil, steering a vehicle or receiving damage – making the gaming experience much more authentic.
To refine traditional smartphone audio technology, the iQOO 7 series is equipped with a new Monster Beat Surround Sound Stereo system with dual speakers, complete with Hi-Res Audio certification. In addition to having fuller bass, higher fidelity, louder volume and a wider sound field, the speakers can provide 3D surround sound. This crisp directional audio of multi-media sound effects can even help users to obtain auditory information, such as character footsteps or gunfire direction, in competitive games or interactive films.
Premium Build and Sleek Design
With an eye-catching and bold new style, both the iQOO 7 Legend and iQOO 7 are designed with a minimalist aesthetic to portray an indomitable attitude of power and endurance.
