This clearly will create a confusion among the people of India that at almost the same price which one will be a better choice?
So in order to answer that we are here to focus on every aspects and tell you which one will be the best, and if you think Snapdragon 888 SoC powered phone under Rs.40,000 will definitely be the one then you might be mistaken because there are few more aspects other than a processor in a premium smartphone now.

Whereas iQOO is also claiming to price the upcoming smartphone under Rs.39,999, so the device expected to get launched in iQOO 7 and it has something more to offer. In India, the base price of a Snapdragon 888 powered smartphone starts from Rs.49,999 among the only three devices that are launched in India. Here the iQOO 7 holds an upper position as it has the Snapdragon 888 processor and we already the price at which it will be offered, or we can say the company has hinted at the price at least and it is cheaper than the rest three, but the OnePlus 9R 5G only comes with the Snapdragon 870 SoC. The devices in the OnePlus 9 series that has a Snapdragon 888 processor are the OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro.
Now coming to the camera section, iQOO 7 has a primary 48MP Sony IMX598 sensor with Optical Image Stabilization along with a 13MP Portrait and 13MP (UW) sensors at the back.

The display sizes are almost similar and AMOLED panels are present in both devices. Both of them has a 120Hz display refresh rate, thus making both of them the king of modern-day smartphone display. These factors other than the processor are the main aspects of a smartphone. But wait we still are not forgetting about the battery capacity of both the devices. The OnePlus 9R has a 4,500mAh battery and comes with the Warp Charge 65T support which is a 65W charger, while the iQOO 7 will come with a decent 4,000mAH battery and we know that the Chinese version of the phone supports a massive 120W fast charging. So this might also be the case when the phone will launch in India will also support the same 120W fast charging.

After all, both devices are capable of handling heavy and powerful tasks but the difference becomes prominent when and how you handle it.
