Last week, Vivo’s sub-brand iQOO launched its latest smartphone under the Neo-series in the Chinese market, dubbed iQOO Neo6. Today, the company has officially started selling the device in China.
The base model with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage is priced at 2,799 yuan (~QAR 1600) while the 8GB RAM and 256GB storage model costs 2,999 yuan (~$1710). The top-end 12GB RAM and 256GB model is priced at 3,299 yuan (~$1880).
Coming to the specifications, the iQOO Neo6 features a 6.62-inch AMOLED display that offers a Full HD+ screen resolution, a 1300nits peak brightness, and a 120Hz refresh rate. It also has an under-display fingerprint scanner for added security.
Under the hood, the device is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, coupled with up to 12GB LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The RAM on the device can also be virtually expanded by up to 4GB.
The phone also has an Independent Display Chip Pro to share the workload of the primary GPU on the SoC. The company says that this will keep framerates stable through long game sessions because it will use less power and have better thermals. There’s also a large-area Vapor Chamber and a six-layer three-dimensional graphite structure.
In the camera department, there’s a triple-camera setup on the back that includes a 64MP Samsung ISOCELL GW1P primary sensor with an f/1.9 aperture. It is accompanied by a 12MP ultra-wide lens with an f/2.2 aperture and a 2MP portrait sensor with an f/2.4 aperture. On the front, there’s a 16MP snapper for taking selfies and video calling.
The iQOO Neo6 runs the Android 12 operating system with the company’s OriginOS Ocean custom user interface on top. It is powered by a 4,700mAh battery which comes with support for 80W flash charging.
