iQOO has just introduced an all-new iQOO Neo 7 series smartphone which is simply named… iQOO Neo 7. The device is very similar to the Neo 7 SE that arrived late last year with the Dimensity 8200. In fact, it comes with the very same CPU.
iQOO Neo 7 specifications
The iQOO Neo 7 packs the MediaTek Dimensity 8200, which is placed above the all-new Dimensity 7200. The chipset brings four ARM Cortex-A78 cores clocked at up to 3.1 GHz and Mali-G610 GPU. That is enough to handle the Neo 7’s Full HD+ display with a 120 Hz refresh rate. The device’s panel has a 6.78-inch AMOLED screen with a centered punch-hole for the selfie shooter. The device has a 300 Hz touch sampling rate, but there is an instant mode for gaming that tweaks it to 1,200 Hz. The panel has 500 nits of manual brightness, but if you enable the high-brightness amount that goes up to 1,000 nits.
Moving around to the back, the iQOO Neo 7 has an elegant square camera module with a 64 MP OIS camera leading the way. Despite the fancy look, the other two sensors are… decorative. We have a 2 MP sensor for macro shooters that you’ll never use, and a 2 MP depth sensor. The latter you’ll probably use for the bokeh effect on portrait shots. For selfies and video calls, the device packs a 16 MP shooter.

The iQOO Neo 7 comes with up to 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256 GB of Internal Storage. It runs Android 13 with FuntouchOS 13 running atop the device. There is also an Extended RAM feature for the update that allows you to add 8 GB of virtual RAM. The device draws its power from a 5,000 mAh battery with 120W FlashCharge. Other features include Stereo Speakers, NFC, IR Blaster, Wi-Fi 6e, and Bluetooth 5.3.
Vivo promises two major updates for the iQOO Neo 7, and three years of security patches. That means updates until Android 15, and one more year of security patches. The base model with 8GB/128 GB will sell in India at INR 29,999 ($360). Meanwhile, the higher 12GB/256GB option will set you back by INR 33,999 ($410). The brand will offer INR 1,500 discount for some ban cards in India. For now, there is no word whether the iQOO Neo 7 will reach other markets.
