iQOO has announced a launch date for its latest Neo-series smartphone. It is tipped to be a truly flagship-level device with a top-end SoC and the amount of RAM to match. It is also said to have faster charging compared to its predecessor and Android 12 out of the box.

Vivo might have set its flagship mobile device launch for the next week of April 2022; however, it very own sub-brand iQOO seems intent on detracting from it with its own event set for around the same time. This one is now set to introduce a successor to the Neo5 to its first markets, thought to include China and India thus far.

The upcoming 6 comes from a line based on the selling point of extremely high-performance specs as accessible prices. Now, it looks like its 2022 generation might continue this trend with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor and up to 12GB of RAM.

A device with a model number allegedly corresponding to the Neo6 (vivo V2196A) has now appeared on Geekbench with these specs, using a build of Android 12 to rack up about 1200 in single-core scores and comfortably exceed 3,000 in multi-core terms.

The Neo6 is also tipped to launch with a ~6.62-inch display, a 4,700mAh battery and 80W charging (one of the latest and fastest charging methods its parent corporation, BBK Electronics, can supply).

Should this be the case, it might be hoped that it launches on April 13, 2022 with adequate cooling. Then again, as iQOO is already touting it as a "gaming" phone, it might stand as good a chance as any of at least some high-tech cooling components.
