Just yesterday, we didn’t know anything about the upcoming phone of iQOO. Today, everything changed. We were informed about its key features. Plus, the iQOO Neo spotted in the GeekBench database.
First, the forthcoming iQOO Neo will not be powered by the Snapdragon 855 like its sibling. Instead, this handset will sport a previous-gen Snapdragon 845. On the one hand, it’s a bit disappointing. But on the other hand, this is the best solution to bring a cheaper model to the market. Say, the company could pack it with a Snapdragon 7 series chip. But it decided to make a move further and put a Snapdragon 8 series processor inside.
The GeekBench screenshot shows the phone scored 2321 points and 8041 points in the single-core and multi-core tests, respectively. Plus, it runs on a system based on Android 9.0 Pie.
Second, today, the iQOO Neo appeared on TENAA, revealing its appearance. It turns out our protagonist will have dimensions of 159.53 × 75.23 × 8.13mm. On the front it will carry a 6.38-inch screen with a drop notch on the top. And there is also a 4420mAh battery under the hood. According to the information released by iQOO itself, the iQOO Neo canceled the middle light strip design compared to the first iQOO phone.
Finally, the first official poster published yesterday showed the iQOO Neo will sport a triple-camera on the back. Compared with the original iQOO phone, the light band on the back is reduced. As the fingerprint sensor is not visible, there is every reason to think VIVO will bring a screen fingerprint technology to this mid-ranger.
By the way, VIVO was the world’s first smartphone maker to launch a smartphone supporting a screen fingerprint module. Later, it released similar phones one after another. So why it can’t bring this technology to its sub-brand?
