After only a few months since the iQOO Neo 6 went global, leaks are already piling up for its successor. Digital Chat Station revealed some key details about the phone after it was listed by the 3C.
iQOO Neo 7 will have an upgraded battery with faster 120 Watt charging (20V/6A) over the Neo 6’s 80W. There has been no confirmation of the battery capacity, but the current model has 4,700mAh.
It is expected that the new model will ditch Qualcomm chips (Snapdragon 870 and 8 Gen 1) in favor of Dimensity 9000+, which has recently been featured on the ROG Phone 6D, for example.
The iQOO Neo 7 will feature an FHD+ 120Hz display (with PWM dimming), according to DCS. It will feature a 50MP IMX766V sensor (a Sony IMX766 customized for Vivo, 1/1.56″, 1.0m), replacing the 64MP GW1 sensor (1/1.72″, 0.8m) of the Neo 6. Last year, the IMX766V was used in the iQOO 8 Pro flagship.
We may see the iQOO Neo 7 next month. Whether that will be a global launch or a China-only launch is unclear. Also, there may be major differences in hardware between regions, as was the case with the Neo 6.
