vivo iQOO 7 Global Specs:

  • Snapdragon 870 processor
  • 8GB/12GB RAM
  • 128GB/256GB UFS 3.1 storage (expandable via MicroSD)
  • 6.62-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display, 120hz refresh rate, 1000hz touch response rate, HDR10+

As for the slightly confusing part, the global iQOO 7 is actually the iQOO Neo5, while the iQOO 7 Legend is the iQOO 7 in China. Aside from the naming changes, there are a few changes for the iQOO 7 Legend. While you still get the top-notch internals (Snapdragon 888, UFS 3.1 storage, LPDDR5 RAM) and class-leading AMOLED display, its 4000mAh battery only charges at 66w and not 120w due to certification-related issues.

As for the vanilla iQOO7, it has the same set of specs found on the Chinese iQOO Neo5–so you are also getting a Snapdragon 870 processor, the same AMOLED panel from the iQOO 7 Legend, and the same 66w fast charging solution for its 4400mAh battery.
