While the regular Vivo iQOO features the top-of-the-line Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, the new iQOO Neo is only powered by the flagship processor of the previous generation, namely the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. This new handset also sports up to 8 GB of memory and 128 GB of internal storage space, liquid cooling, and a 4,500 mAh battery.

Vivo is back with a quite affordable phone for gamers that uses a high-end Qualcomm processor from the previous generation. The phablet-sized, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845-driven iQOO Neo is now up for pre-order and a flash sale is scheduled for July 8.

Vivo iQOO Neo has a 6.38-inch OLED full HD+ display with an onscreen fingerprint scanner, a triple main camera (12 + 8 + 2 MP sensors), a 12 MP selfie shooter, dual 4G VoLTE, as well as a 4,500 mAh battery with support for 22.5 W FlashCharge (from zero to 50 percent in 30 minutes). Obviously, there is also full support for today's popular connectivity features such as USB Type-C, Bluetooth 5, WiFi 802.11, and GPS with GLONASS. The operating system is based on Android 9.0 Pie and has Vivo's own UI — known as Funtouch OS — on top.

In addition to the above, the iQOO Neo also features AI Turbo, Net Turbo, Center Turbo, and Cooling Turbo software functions. The hardware in charge of its cooling includes a vapor chamber and two multi-layer graphite slates that cover it. This handset comes in black or purple and starts around US$260 for the 6/64 GB version, but the 8/128 GB variant goes all the way up to around US$335.

Those interested can place their pre-orders already on Vivo's online store (Chinese only) and the websites of most major Chinese retailers. The first flash sale is scheduled for July 8 and based on the specs and price in question, the Vivo iQOO Neo could become quite a hit.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
