In anticipation of iQOO’s upcoming 7 Legend smartphone, the brand has confirmed that its top-performing device will feature the BMW M Motorsport branding “which represents the true spirit of track racing.” The iQOO 7 Legend will feature BMW’s tricolor racing stripes, engraved with the slogan: “Fascination Meets Innovation”.
The Chinese variant of the iQOO 7 announced in January features the same branding that we can expect from the upcoming 7 Legend which hits India next week. The following image bears the same BMW M branding as confirmed in today’s iQOO announcement.
The partnership started in 2020 with a BMW M4 DTM (Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters) which was entered in the DTM race with IQOO as sponsor. Another IQOO sponsored vehicle will compete in the 2021 Nürburgring 24 Hour Race in June.

The iQOO 7 features a 6.62-inch AMOLED display with FHD + screen resolution and a variable refresh rate of 120Hz. HDR10 + comes standard, along with the center hole punch selfie camera and integrated fingerprint scanner. The iQOO 7 will be powered by the Snapdraegon 870 while the Legend 7 is expected to arrive with the Snapdragon 888.
Although the device is offered in China with a load of 120W, the variant to India will be limited to 66W for (presumably) a 4000mAh battery. Meanwhile, the triple camera setup consists of a 48 MP main camera joined by a 13 MP ultra-wide camera and a 13 MP telephoto lens.
Pricing for the iQOO 7 and 7 Legend is not yet final, but the starting price for the iQOO 7 will be less than INR 40,000. iQOO will announce the Indian launch of the smartphone line on April 26.
