The first Vivo iQoo had a configuration boasting 12GB of RAM, in addition to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset. The company has announced another phone in the iQoo line, called the iQoo Neo. But surprisingly, it wasn’t made to surpass the original. In fact, it looks to be positioned as a more budget-friendly gaming phone.
So what does the Vivo iQoo Neo actually come with? Wwe’re looking at the previous generation Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset, and a 6.38-inch Full HD+ OLED display. On the flip side, the battery in the iQoo Neo is actually larger than the one in the original, rated at 4500mAh. It also supports Vivo’s 22.5W FlashCharge tech, which reportedly gives it 50% charge in 30 minutes.
It also comes with a number of performance boosters, all of them with a -Turbo suffix. Collectively, they’re known as Multi-Turbo, and they enhance the performance of a wide variety of features, not just the gaming-related ones. One of it is called Cooling Turbo, and its hardware counterpart involves two multi-layer graphite slates, and a vapour chamber in between.
As for its camera, it comes with a 12MP + 8MP wide-angle + 2MP depth sensor combo at the back. On the front, there’s the 12MP camera sitting in a waterdrop notch.
The Vivo iQoo Neo also comes win two configurations. One has 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, while another comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. They cost CNY1798 (~RM1081) and CNY2298 (~RM1382), respectively. Both will begin being sold in China starting 8 July, but there’s no word of it leaving its home country as of yet, much like the original iQoo.
