The Vivo iQOO Neo 3 was just announced and it’s a killer.
Coming in as a cheaper alternative to the iQOO 3, the Vivo iQOO Neo 3 managed to keep some of the key features at a more affordable price tag.
The iQOO Neo 3 is still powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 octa-core processor, which you can get with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
But weirdly enough, the 12GB model only comes with 128GB of storage. You must settle for 8GB of memory if you want the 256GB model — something that you might want to consider since the device doesn’t have a microSD card slot for storage expansion.
Vivo also kept the fast 144Hz refresh rate on this device — great for gaming and even more mundane tasks. While keeping the lights on is a 4,500mAh battery with 44W fast charging support.
A punch-hole on the 6.57-inch FHD+ LCD display houses a 16-megapixel selfie snapper. Meanwhile, the rectangular camera bump on the back houses a 48-megapixel primary camera, 8-megapixel ultra-wide, and a 2-megapixel macro sensor.
