iQOO launched a couple of smartphones last year in China, but the iQOO 3 was the only handset that was made available in India. Recent reports have claimed that the company is planning to expand its product portfolio this year in India. XDA Developers’ Tushar Mehta had tweeted in February that the company could launch two or more devices including the iQOO 7 in India in the coming months starting from March. Yesterday, iQOO Indian Director Gagan Arora released a cryptic tweet. Probably, he could be teasing the arrival of the new iQOO phone(s) in India.
