Vivo’s sub-brand just released the iQOO Neo 6, and with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, it’s one of the most powerful phones the company currently makes.

The capable chip is paired with an equally packed display. The iQOO Neo 6 boasts a fast 120Hz 6.67-inch AMOLED screen that also boasts a 1,200Hz touch sampling rate for extra responsiveness when playing games.


There’s a punch-hole on the top of the screen for the 16-megapixel selfie-snapper. Some renders don’t show the cutout, but it sure is there, placed in the middle on the top.

On the back, we have a camera layout similar to other Vivo phones we’ve seen before, albeit wider just to make it look a little unique. It houses the 64-megapixel main camera complete with optical image stabilization (OIS), a sharp 12-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. There’s also the Neo logo in 16-bit font.


Keeping the lights on is a 4,700mAh battery. Not the biggest we’ve seen, but sure is generous enough for a sleek and high-end smartphone. What’s more, it’s paired with a speedy 80W charging that the company claims can go from 20% to 80% in under 20 minutes.

Since it will be initially available in China, the device will ship with the brand’s new OriginOS that’s based on the latest Android 12 operating system.

It comes in three colors: Orange, Blue, and Black. Some of them have fancy leather back panels to really justify their price.


Speaking of price, the iQOO Neo 6 starts at CNY2,799 (around Php22,900) for the 8GB/128GB variant, CNY2,999 (around Php24,600) for the 8GB/256GB, while the top-of-the-line 12GB/256GB will be at CNY3,299 (around Php27,000). As usual, it will be first available in China and could soon arrive in India. Hopefully, we finally get one here in the Philippines.
