iQOO Neo5 specifications, launch timeline, and price may have been revealed courtesy a couple of new sources. A Vivo-branded smartphone with model number V2055A has been spotted on the Google Play Console (via MySmartPrice). Given the similarity in the specifications of the Vivo V2055A and the upcoming iQOO Neo5, the former is very likely a codename for the latter. Separately, a Weibo tipster has provided the iQOO Neo5 prices and claims the phone will be launched in mid-March 2021, a month earlier than its predecessor, the iQOO Neo3.
iQOO Neo5 price (rumoured)
As per the tipster, the iQOO Neo5 price in China for the 8GB RAM and 128GB storage variant will cost RMB 2,988, which is approximately Rs 33,775. The 12GB+256GB variant will be priced RMB 3,598 (approx Rs 40,600).
iQOO Neo5 specifications
We learned about some key iQOO Neo5 specifications via the Google Play Console listing and Weibo leak. For starters, the phone will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 5G chipset and up to 12GB of RAM and 25GB of storage. Its exact screen size is unknown, but we know that it has an FHD+ resolution (2400 x 1080) will employ a super AMOLED panel with a refresh rate of 120Hz. Little more is know about the iQOO Neo5 other than the fact that it will come with a plastic body.
Another interesting iQOO Neo5 feature is support for 88W fast charging. Much like the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro, its battery will come in a dual-cell configuration, allowing for faster-charging speeds while minimizing the risk. Given that the iQOO Neo5 is a watered-down version of the iQOO 7, it could feature a scaled-down camera setup similar to that of the latter.
