iQOO Neo 7 SE Starting Price
In October, the iQOO Neo 7 launched in the Chinese market with a Dimensity 9000+ chipset and a starting price of ¥2699 (~$374). Today, iQOO launched the toned-down version of that phone, the iQOO Neo 7 SE. As the name suggests, this is the successor to iQOO Neo 6 SE, which launched in May with Snapdragon 870 chipset. The main USP of the Neo 7 SE is its SOC. It has the MediaTek Dimensity 8200 chipset, which was announced today as well.
Starting with the chipset, the MediaTek Dimensity 8200 is a high-end SOC and the successor to Dimensity 8100. It is built on the 4nm process and has an octa-core CPU with one prime Cortex-A78 core clocked at 3.1GHz, three Cortex-A78 cores clocked at 3.0GHz, and four Cortex-X55 cores at 2.0GHz. This SOC comes with the HyperEngine 6.0 feature for a better gaming experience.
The phone has LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage, so performance-wise, this is a powerful device. iQOO claims the phone scores over 900,000 points on the AnTuTu benchmark, which is impressive.
As for the design, the iQOO Neo 7 SE inherits the design language from the Neo 7. There is a similar camera module design and the same front look. There is the same 5,000mAh battery and 120W fast charging support. There is an under-display fingerprint scanner, stereo speakers, and an IR Blaster.
There is a 6.78-inch 120Hz AMOLED display with 1300 nits peak brightness, HDR10+ support, and a Full-HD+ resolution.
Coming to the cameras, iQOO Neo 7 SE has a 64MP primary rear camera (OIS) with two 2MP sensors. So, the camera department gets a significant downgrade from the iQOO Neo 7, which has a 50MP Sony IMX766v sensor and an ultrawide camera. The selfie camera is the same, so it has a 16MP sensor.
Android 13 runs out of the box with OriginOS 3.
