vivo’s newly established subbrand is about to release its second smartphone – iQOO Neo, a lighter and more affordable variant of the gaming powerhouse that was the original iQOO. Today we got to see the device in the flesh along with some specs courtesy of TENAA, while the company posted a teaser about the chipset of the device – a Snapdragon 845.
The phone is still in its preliminary stages of licensing, but the Chinese regulatory revealed some basic specs like the dimensions – 159.5 x 75.2 x 8.1 mm and the screen diagonal of 6.38”. Since the initial images do not showcase a fingerprint scanner, it is likely to be under the OLED display.
While the vivo iQOO comes with an even larger 4,000 mAh battery, the iQOO Neo will have a monster 4,500 mAh cell, but will probably skip on the 44W charging capabilities due to lack of space for the controller; at least it will have both USB-C and 3.5 mm audio jack.
Rumors also suggested 6/128 GB memory combo with a price tag of CNY1,998 (under $300), but we are yet to receive credible confirmation of this one.
