Vivo spin-off brand iQOO has confirmed the launch of iQOO Neo 3 5G. The handset will be launched on April 23rd at an event in China. The vendor has further revealed that the iQOO Neo 3 5G will come with a high refresh rate display and Snapdragon 865 SoC ticking at its core. The iQOO Neo 3 5G will be positioned above the iQOO 3, which was introduced in India back in February, and the successor to iQOO Neo Snapdragon 855 Edition from last year. The handset is expected to ship with a punch-hole display, quad rear cameras, and a handful of gaming features to assist gamers.

iQOO Neo 3 5G specifications

The iQOO Neo 3 5G will be a gaming-centric device with a display refresh rate as high as 144Hz. The handset will be powered by Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 865 SoC with support for 5G SA/NSA and UFS 3.1 storage. We can also expect the phone to feature LPDDR5 RAM and ‘Monster Touch Buttons’ and ‘4D Game Vibration’ features, which were introduced with iQOO 3. The Monster Touch Buttons are two pressure-sensitive buttons on the side frame of the phone to help users achieve quick multi-finger operations in the game, while the 4D vibration is said to offer an immersive gaming experience.

The phone may come with a slightly bigger a 6.6-inch punch-hole display compared to the vanilla iQOO 3 smartphone that flaunts a 6.4-inch screen. It’s likely to have quad rear cameras with 48MP primary sensor paired with a telephoto sensor, ultra-wide-angle sensor, and macro sensor. That’s all the information we can divulge at the moment.

The iQOO Neo 3 5G launch has only been confirmed for China at the moment, but we expect it to debut in other markets including India soon.
