At the beginning of March, Vivo iQOO launched with flagship specifications like Snapdragon 855 processor, triple rear cameras & a 4,000mAH battery with 44W Fast Charging support. Now, the company is all set to launch the Vivo iQOO Neo, a phone powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. Yes, the phone has last year’s flagship Snapdragon processor but looking at the price of Vivo iQOO ($450), the Neo would be a mid-ranger.
So, a mid-ranger with the Snapdragon 845 processor sounds great.
The press renders of the phone were shared on Weibo by the company & the phone also showed up on TENAA that revealed the design of the handset. Also, a couple of specifications like the display & the battery size were revealed by the TENAA listing
As we can see in the image above, the design from the rear is similar to the Vivo iQOO, but the design of the camera module is a bit changed. This time, the LED flash is placed inside the camera module along with the three camera lenses.
The lack of fingerprint reader on the reader suggests an in-display fingerprint scanner. There is this carbon fiber finish under the glass that looks unique.
The volume rockers are placed on the right side along with the power button & the SIM card tray is on the left side.
Talking about the specifications that leaked via TENAA, there is a 6.38-inch AMOLED Full-HD+ display & a big 4,420mAh battery. So, such a large battery, along with the 10nm Snapdragon 845 means we are getting a device with superb battery life. Of course, it depends on software optimization as well. The dimensions are 159.53×75.23×8.13(mm).
The launch date is not yet known, but the company will soon announce it.
