iQOO is gearing up to introduce a new iQOO Neo series smartphone pretty soon. The iQOO Neo 6 reached global markets a few months back, but this lineup is known for multiple releases throughout the year. That said, the company is already preparing the terrain for the iQOO Neo 7.
According to a new report, the iQOO Neo 7 will reach the Chinese market on October 20. Vivo, the parent company, has announced the launch date for the cost-effective flagship. It will be one of the few smartphones sporting the recently-released MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ SoC.
Dimensity 9000+ specs
The MediaTek Dimensity 9000+, as you may expect, it’s the answer to the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. MediaTek made its return to the flagship market this year with the Dimensity 9000. The company is following the traditions in this category by launching a new incremental version of its flagship SoC. The Dimensity 9000+ brings a few bumps in performance. It has 1 x ARM Cortex-X2 core at up to 3,2 GHz.
There are also 3 x ARM Cortex-A710 cores at up to 2.8 GHz, and 4 x ARM Cortex-A510 cores at up to 1.8 GHz. For graphical tasks, the SoC brings the Mali-G710 MC10 GPU. Therefore, the iQOO Neo 7 will have plenty of performance. In fact, it will be above most mid-range phones.
iQOO Neo 7 leaked details
Now, going for the iQOO Neo 7 there is more besides the Dimensity 9000+. According to leaks, the phone brings a Full HD+ panel with a 120 Hz refresh rate. Unfortunately, we don’t have the exact size of the panel. However, it may be an OLED screen with an under-display fingerprint scanner.
Gizchina News of the week
As per leaked renders, the iQOO Neo 7 will bring a triple-camera array. There is a rectangular island comprising a black rectangle with two cameras inside of a round hole. The third snapper is outside of the black island and is on the camera’s island itself. This module is squareish resembling a periscope module. However, we don’t think this is a periscope shooter. After all, the iQOO Neo series focuses on performance rather than the camera. The Neo 7 isn’t an exception. Anyway, the leaks point to a main 50 MP camera in this device.
The iQOO Neo 7 will also come with 120W charging, but the battery size is unclear. Anyway, we expect it to be beyond 4,500 mAh battery. The iQOO Neo 7 certainly will arrive as a good offering, especially with its “mid-range” pricing approach. We expect it to hit global markets by the end of the year.
Pricing is not available yet. However, we don’t expect the iQOO Neo 7 to hit the price of a flagship, despite its flagship processor.
