Vivo’s iQOO 7 smartphone won the 2021 Red Dot Award for Product Design, thanks to its outstanding layout that gives users a strong sense of control. The Red Dot Award: Product Design appraises the best products created across the globe every year. Inspired by the brand’s affinity for speed, iQOO 7’s aesthetic visual experience comprises of corrosion-resistant marine aluminium in its middle frame and AG frosted glass which made it win the race amongst other contenders.
iQOO 7 is the latest performance flagship offered by iQOO, the independent sub-brand of vivo that aims to provide an unparalleled experience to young and tech-savvy consumers in their relentless quest for passion. iQOO 7 runs on the latest Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 888 5G Mobile Platform and features multiple industry-leading technologies, including super flash charging capabilities and a liquid cooling system. Together with a 120Hz full-sensing screen, super touch acceleration with a 1000Hz Instant Touch Sampling Rate and 300Hz Touch Sampling Rate, and dual speakers, iQOO 7 also redefines the mobile gaming experience to match professional e-sports standards.
According to iQOO’s product design team, they have always focused on the users and prioritize what is best for them by addressing their true needs. When designing iQOO 7, they considered some of the most common user scenarios, including extended use for game-playing as well as when the phone is accidentally dropped. The team was tremendously excited that the efforts have been recognized by Red Dot, the world’s most prestigious design award.
iQOO 7 adopted corrosion-resistant marine aluminium in its middle frame, which prevents corrosion from oils and perspiration on users’ hands. It also provides extra protection to the smartphone’s rear cover and screen when the phone is dropped. The hard-edged middle frame with a slightly curved surface on the side provides a comfortable grip.
Adopting AG frosted glass on its rear helps iQOO 7 resolve the issue of sticky fingerprints and also makes the underlying light and shadow comparison more transparent. The resulting transparency enhances the smartphone’s three-dimensional feeling while expressing iQOO’s goal to epitomize both fun and speed through design.
With iQOO’s inherent spirit for exploration and commitment to overseas markets, the company will soon offer iQOO 7 series in India. iQOO will customize its product portfolio based on market conditions and sophisticated insights into local customer needs and preferences.

Video Meet Adds Artificial Intelligence to Its Platform
Video Meet developed and created by Jaipur-based startup Video Meet Pvt. Ltd has an integrated advanced Artificial Intelligence system. The feature will boost the application for their users in terms of the variety of tasks that can be performed on the application simultaneously. Interestingly entire AI module works within the browser and there is nothing to install on the computer.
Since its inception, VideoMeet has always been the go-to option for video conferencing for its large and committed user base.
Corporates, Schools, and other institutions use the Made-in-India application due to its ease of logging in the meeting and other user-friendly features.
VideoMeet comes with an intelligent system to detect and auto increase/decrease the bandwidth requirement of video call as per the quality of internet available on endpoints. The virtual backgrounds get automatically applied and adjusted according to the user/host preference and provide an almost live experience to all the participants. This is very useful considering people are having a meeting from all kinds of places and background need to be more professional looking.
Captioning being one of the resourceful features, help to build smoother communication between people from diverse backgrounds. VideoMeet is the only application to roll out this feature with Hindi and English captions and plans to introduce all Indian regional languages with future app updates.
The purpose behind introducing this feature was to reduce the intensity of disturbing elements in the meeting and uphold a convenient communication channel between participants.
The application was conceptualized last year as a result of MeitY’s ’Made in India Videoconferencing Challenge’ where it received acclaim and appreciation. With a capacity of holding a virtual conference of almost 2000 people, VideoMeet is capable of replacing other foreign alternatives when data privacy is of utmost importance. Data breaching has become a common practice, servers of multinational companies are being hacked, and with the usage of homegrown apps, Indian corporate can control this.
Elaborating upon the same, Dr. Ajay Data, Founder of VideoMeet, said, “India is riding on a digital wave with a user base of 500 million people. However, this unprecedented growth has come in the absence of strong legal frameworks amid a pandemic, so protecting data and users’ privacy is vital. Therefore, there is an ardent need for local IT players to design and build apps that not only offer end-to-end encryption but also promise information and meetings hosted are on local servers to ensure the safety of sensitive business and trade information.”
