Vivo launches iQOO Z7 5G with Dimensity 920 chipset in India
Vivo has officially announced its budget-oriented iQOO Z7 5G and it will be available exclusively in India starting from March 21. The device is expected to compete with the Redmi Note 12 series and Realme 10 series of smartphones.
The phone will be available for purchase at 1 pm on March 21 through Amazon and iQOO’s official website. Vivo is offering the iQOO Z7 in Norway Blue and Pacific Night colours and the device will have a starting price of INR 17,999 for the 6/128GB model and INR 18,999 for the 8/128GB version.
The iQOO Z7 boasts a 6.38″ 1080p AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate, 360Hz touch sampling rate, and a peak brightness of 1300 nits, making it a decent choice for those who prioritise display quality. Additionally, the phone has a fingerprint scanner located under the display, which is a noteworthy feature for a phone in this price range.

The iQOO Z7 is powered by a 6nm octa-core MediaTek Dimensity 920 chipset. Although the MediaTek SoC is decent enough for everyday usage and some light gaming, it would have been better if Vivo went for Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 778G that powers the iQOO Z6 Pro instead.
In terms of optics, the iQOO Z7 features a dual camera setup which includes a 64MP optically-stabilised main camera and a dedicated 2MP macro lens. There is a 16MP camera on the front for selfie duties.
The iQOO Z7 comes with a massive 5,000mAh battery and 44W FlashCharge, which the company claims that can charge the battery to 50% in just 25 minutes, making it an excellent choice for those constantly on the go.
The phone runs on Funtouch OS 13, which is based on Android 13, and Vivo has promised three years of monthly security updates and two years of Android updates.
