Announcement and a new portion of confusion. Vivo iQOO 7 and iQOO 7 Legend for India

We clean up a new portion of the mess and confusion that Vivo has prepared for us.

A couple of new smartphones have been announced in India.Vivo iQOO 7 Legend. And Vivo iQOO 7 India. That is, it is clear that they have there in India this very Vivo iQOO 7 India is simply called “iQOO 7”. The problem is that one “just iQOO 7” already exists. Announced in China in January. So I rename it to Vivo iQOO 7 China.

So.

one.The Vivo iQOO 7 Legend is essentially a copy of the Vivo iQOO 7 China. Only the Indian charging is not so insanely fast, and there is only one color. But the most non-trivial, created "in collaboration with BMW."

2. Vivo iQOO 7 India is a copy of the Vivo iQOO Neo5 smartphone announced in March in China. The colors here are more traditional.

Becauseboth smartphones are gaming, they are not offended by the power. The Vivo iQOO 7 India has a Snapdragon 870 chipset (about 700 thousand points in AnTuTu9). Well, in Vivo iQOO 7 Legend - the top Snapdragon 888 (800 thousand points). Of course, both smartphones are equipped with advanced cooling systems to reduce throttling.

The screens look similar. AMOLED matrices with a diagonal of 6.62 ″, high resolution 1080 × 2400 (398 ppi), refresh rate up to 120 Hz.

Batteries.Quite modest 4000 mAh for Legends and 4400 mAh for iQOO 7 India. There are no wireless chargers, but the fast ones are obscenely fast - 66 watts. With the charging speed, the Legend did it offensively. The iQOO 7 China analogue has 120W charging. And here I had to cut it. They say, not voluntarily, but at the request of regulatory bodies.

Cameras can be called conditionally a weak link. But only because there is no telephoto. There are three cameras behind.
The Legend has 48 + 13 + 13 MP.Main module, wide angle. And the third one is portrait, which gives 2x optical zoom. The junior smartphone does not have a portrait lens, instead it is a simple monochrome 2 MP camera.

The front cameras, apparently, are the same - at 16 MP.

With reviews and examples of snapshots, things are not very good so far, but this video contains a small comparison of cameras
iQOO 7 Legend Review, OnePlus 9R and Vivo X60.

What else. Memory cards are not supported, there is no normal audio output. The fingerprint scanners are hidden inside the screens. NFC, 5G and advanced Wi-Fi are all there.
