The iQOO Neo5 will be announced on March 16. That was revealed last week, this week the brand confirmed the murmurs that the phone will be powered by the Snapdragon 870.
The chipset will be paired with fast UFS 3.1 storage and up to 12 GB LPDDR5 RAM. Memory Fusion, a technology developed by vivo for OriginOS, will make those 12 GB feel like 15 GB (it’s similar to having a swap partition). There should be an 8 GB version as well (advertised as 8+3 GB because of Fusion).
iQOO Neo5: Snapdragon 870 confirmed • 120 Hz display • Carbon fiber teaser
The brand is not denying the 120 Hz rumors and mentions an “independent display chip” that will lower the power requirements of the high refresh rate AMOLED panel. iQOO is also teasing fast battery charging (66W FlashCharge). And we’re getting a whiff of carbon fiber.
From the copious leaks we can construct a fairly detailed picture of the iQOO Neo5. It will have a 6.6” Super AMOLED display with 1080p+ resolution, plus a triple camera with a 48 MP main module, 13 MP ultra wide and a helper. The battery capacity will be 4,400 mAh. The price tag has reported to be in the CNY 3,000 to 3,700 range ($465-575).
