The iQOO Neo6 is tipped to launch soon with a top-end Qualcomm processor and 80W charging
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.
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.
