The iQOO Neo 3 is expected to be the cheapest Snapdragon 865 SoC phone. Rumours are rife that the phone could be priced in China starting at RMB 3,000 (~Rs 32,000) or lower as that’s how much the Redmi K30 Pro costs in the country.

iQOO Neo 3 specifications

The iQOO Neo 3 specifications will include a 6.6-inch punch-hole display with refresh rate as high as 144Hz. The handset will rock Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 865 SoC with support for 5G SA/NSA and at least 8GB RAM + 256GB storage under the hood. The phone is expected to boot Android 10-based iQOO UI 1.0 out of the box. The iQOO Neo 3 will most likely be a gaming-centric smartphone and we can expect it to feature pressure-sensitive buttons on the side frame of the phone to help users achieve quick multi-finger operations in the game and the 4D vibration is said to offer an immersive gaming experience, just like the original iQOO 3.

Lastly, the phone may come with quad rear cameras with a 48MP primary sensor paired with a telephoto sensor, ultra-wide-angle sensor, and macro sensor.
