What the iQOO Neo 7 SE poster reveals
While there is no launch date that has been spotted, the iQOO Neo 7 SE poster has revealed that the smartphone is likely to launch with the upcoming MediaTek Dimensity 8200 SoC. The latter is expected to be based on the TSMC 4nm fabrication process, and is believed to be the successor to the Dimensity 8100. It will rival Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 7 Gen 2 SoC, and it will be interesting to see how these chips perform.
For reference, the mid-premium range Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 could not quite compete with the Dimensity 8100 from MediaTek in terms of overall efficiency, performance and cost. As a result, it could be interesting to see how Qualcomm fares against the sub-flagship MediaTek chip this time.
Other key specifications tipped by the iQOO Neo 7 SE poster include an E5 AMOLED display, which previous reports have tipped to be a 6.78-inch one with 120Hz refresh rate. Other specifications include a 5,000mAh battery, 120W fast charging, and optical image stabilisation on the camera.
There are three colours that the smartphone has been teased in, and a leather textured back panel could be in the offering as well.
