iQOO is tipped to join the 100W Android smartphone brigade with its next Neo flagship

iQOO is a sub-brand of the OEM Vivo, known for its Neo line of premium mid-range smartphones. Now, a reliable leaker asserts that its next flagship is currently being designed to keep up with what might become one of 2022's hallmarks: the more widespread adoption of tech that supports charging at 100 watts (W) or more.

Vivo's spin-off iQOO started its Neo mid-tier line to offer premium specs and features at sub-flagship prices. It has done so well with this goal in some variants that it is a shame they are rarely available outside China. Now, the eminent tipster Digital Chat Station claims that the series will get back to its roots by braving the "100W charging" arena in 2022.

This space is projected to grow and get more competitive in the coming year, whereas only a relatively small handful of devices, which are largely made by Xiaomi only to boot, dominate the sector at present. However, flagships from what is often referred to as BBK Electronics' Oga group (which includes OPPO, Realme and OnePlus) are expected to upgrade to triple-digit wattage in their upcoming generations.

Now, iQOO - which, due to its relationship with Vivo, is also under the BBK umbrella - is expected to join them. The transition might represent a significant upgrade over its 2021 Neo5 release, even though this phone supports a rate of up to 66W.

To date, not much else is known or guessed about its putative successor (likely to launch as the Neo6 or possibly 7), although it is likely to uphold its series' typical "racing" theme and reputation for additional speed-focused specs for its bracket.

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.
