As expected, iQOO has introduced the new high-end gaming-centric smartphone, the iQOO Neo 6 in China. The phone comes equipped with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, various gaming-specific features, and good looks. Here’s all you need to know.
iQOO Neo 6: Specs and Features
The iQOO Neo 6 has an iQOO 9 Pro-esque design but with a smaller rectangular camera island. While the Pink and Blues options go for a “lychee leather” finish, the Black Lord variant uses an AG glass at the back.
The front sports a 6.62-inch OLED Samsung E4 HDR10+ display with a center-placed punch-hole cutout and a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels. The display supports a 120Hz refresh rate, 6 million: 1 contrast ratio, 1300 nits of peak brightness, and a fingerprint scanner too. The display includes a dedicated chip for reduced GPU rendering load, frame rate boost mode, and high frame low power mode. It also supports MEMC.
As revealed earlier, the iQOO 6 Neo has a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 mobile platform onboard, coupled with up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
The camera department is no less of a highlight. There’s a 64MP main camera with OIS support, along with a 12MP ultra-wide lens and a 2MP portrait lens. The front snapper stands at 16MP. The phone supports features like AI Multi-Frame Noise Reduction, Night Raw HDR Algorithm, AI Anti-Glare Algorithm, Portrait mode, Night mode, dual-view video, up to 10x digital zoom, 4K videos, and more.
The iQOO Neo 6 sources its fuel from a 4,700mAh battery, which supports 80W fast charging. This is capable of reaching a 30% charge in just 5 minutes. The device runs OriginOS based on Android 12 and brings in the Vivo Card service, privacy-focused features, and more features for users.
It has support for a 6-layer 3D graphite cooling system, Multi-Turbo 6.0, Memory Fusion 2.0 (up to 4GB of extra RAM), dual-line linear motor, dual-control pressure sensing design, and more. Connectivity options include 5G, Wi-Fi Bluetooth version 5.2, OTG, USB Type-C port, NFC, and more.
