Yesterday, the Meizu 16T launched in China with Snapdragon 855 at a starting price of 1,999 Yuan only & became the cheapest Snapdragon 855-powered phone. But, it lost the crown to the Vivo iQOO Neo 855 Version that launched today at a starting price of 1,998 Yuan. So, that means the iQOO Neo 855 Version is 1 Yuan cheaper than the Meizu 16T (Looks like they did this intentionally to beat the pricing of Meizu 16T).
VIVO iQOO NEO 855 VERSION – DESIGN & SPECIFICATIONS
Compared to the Vivo iQOO Neo that launched in July with Snapdragon 845 SOC, there is no difference in the design.
