According to @DigitalChatStation, the iQOO Neo5 will use a 66W fast charger. This charger will give the device a full charge in about 30 minutes. In addition to the iQOO Neo5’s new fast charger, the leak also shows the front of this device. We can see from the image that the iQOO Neo5 comes with a center punch-hole display. The punch-hole aperture is significantly smaller than the previous generation. This will effectively reduce the impact of the front aperture on the screen display. The outer packaging is still black and yellow.
Recently, there were reports that the iQOO Neo5 smartphone will be launched next month. Furthermore, this device will come with the Snapdragon 870 chip. It will also use memory fusion technology to optimize RAM and ROM through algorithms. Part of the idle ROM space is directly used for RAM operation, which increases the memory capacity in disguise. With this technology, an 8GB RAM model can have 11GB RAM running memory. This eventually influences the overall performance of the device.
For those unaware, the iQOO Neo series is a mid-range cost-effective iQOO lineup but that still has a flagship-grade performance. According to rumors, the brand is gearing up to launch the new iQOO Neo 5 around March. Since the launch is coming closer, we’re starting to see more and more leaks revealing details about the handset. Today, an alleged iQOO Neo 5 prototype has emerged on the web. It gives us a good glimpse of the handset along with some of its key specifications.
According to the leaked image, the iQOO Neo 5 users a centered punch-hole camera. It looks significantly reduced compared to its predecessor, so users will not be annoyed by the space taken by this cutout. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC is basically a Snapdragon 865++ bringing an improved experience over the last year’s flagship SoC. The great benefit is that it will allow OEMs to price their devices lower than the phones equipped with the Snapdragon 888 SoC.
The device will run Android 11 and we can see that OriginOS will be running on top. This particular variant has 128GB of Internal Storage, but we can expect another one with 256GB. According to previous rumors, the iQOO Neo 5 will have a 120Hz refresh rate. Further, it will draw power from a 4,400mAh battery with 66W or 88W SuperFlash 3.0 charging technology. If it comes with 88W, then it will become the fastest charging smartphone costing around 3,000 Yuan.
