A few days ago, it has even managed to appear on the game interface of “Honor of Kings”. Our protagonist should come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC. Moreover, this phone must become the designated device for the official tournament of the 8th Honor of the Kings College League.
Some users even leaked a photo showing its actual look. According to the spotted image, the iQOO Neo 5s will adopt a straight screen design. Plus, the starting configuration has 8GB of RAM and 128GB of native storage. But it is also going to support memory fusion technology. In effect, it will enlarge the memory by up to 4GB. Essentially, it uses unused storage or ROM and converts it to virtual RAM.

By the way, VIVO is not the only company that uses this technology. Much earlier, ZTE had been using it as well. And recently, we heard that Xiaomi is working on its own technology that will allow Mi users of old small storage devices to improve their daily experience.
Moreover, the iQOO Neo 5s is said to run the original OriginOS system, which was released recently. Lastly, there should be a triple-camera on the back. Reports also state that the main cameras will be Sony’s IMX598 with 48 MP.
Rumors also have that the forthcoming product will feature a 6.56-inch OLED display with a FullHD+ resolution and a refresh rate of 120Hz. It will also have an on-screen fingerprint scanner.
From the poster, we can also see that the bottom of the mobile phone screen will carry two pressure-sensitive sensors. They will support specific functions in mobile games and improve operation efficiency.
As you understand, the iQOO Neo 5s will be aimed at mobile gamers. We understand that it is not a genuine gaming smartphone like the Black Shark, ROG, Red Magic, and Legion. But internally it comes with features that will make the phone ideal for mobile gaming. Even the 4500mAh battery inside will support 66W fast charging.
Looking at the specs list above, we understand that the iQOO Neo 5s has no chances against the top-branded premium smartphones. But on the other hand, this phone looks quite attractive. So if the rumors price tag of $465 is true, it could become a very interesting option who is looking for a budget flagship-level device.
