iQOO Neo to launch in July 2019, comes with 22.5W Flash Charge for a 4500mAh battery
iQOO is a new brand from the OEM Vivo that has already released a flagship smartphone for this year. Now, it is to be joined by the Neo, a more mid-range device with a 2018 premium SoC. The company has also reportedly confirmed that it will have a 4500mAh battery, to be kept going with 22.5-watt (W) Flash Charge technology.
Vivo will release the iQOO Neo 5 days from today (June 27, 2019). It is projected to be a 6.38-inch display phone with 6 GB RAM and 128 Gb in internal storage. However, as it is also reported to rock the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, it should be one of the most powerful sub-premium phones around at launch.
Its maker has confirmed the latter of those specs in some official teasers. The most recent of these highlights another potential advantage of the iQOO Neo: a 4500mAh battery. This aligns somewhat with a leak from the Chinese certifiers TENAA about this device. To be exact, this documentation put the Neo's capacity at 4420mAh, its probable effective maximal charge.
This power-pack juices up using Vivo's Flash Charge technology. However, it is apparently rated for 22.5W, and not the 44W version reserved for the iQOO flagship. On the other hand, such a power-brick should reduce charging times in an appreciable enough fashion anyway. Admittedly, neither are the 120W Super Fast Flash Charge that Vivo has recently developed for its next generation of smartphones.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
