It was the beginning of 2019 when the Asian company announced the launch of a sub-brand destined to be the spiritual heir of OnePlus, bringing back the concept of flagship killer. And now we finally know officially iQOO Neo 7, device boasts high-end technical specifications but at a lower price than the average: everything you need to know between technical specifications, features and output!
iQOO Neo 7 is official: everything you need to know
Design and display
In terms of design, with iQOO Neo 7 we find various details borrowed from Article 10. Observing the look of the terminal it is impossible not to notice the presence of a square lens: it resembles a module with periscope zoom, but in reality it is only an aesthetic choice.
The style of the terminal is made even more elegant by the material of the back cover, characterized by a imitation leather texture. Good dimensions, given that we are talking about a terminal with a thickness of 8.9 mm and a weight of 197 grams.
Moving on to the display, we find a flat panel from 6.78" in Full HD+ (2400 x 1080 pixels) with refresh rate a 120 Hz and integrated ID sensor, with Samsung technology AMOLED E5 (a step forward compared to the E4 of the previous model Neo 6). The central punch-hole to enclose the front camera. There is no shortage of support forHDR10 +, peak brightness a 1.500 thread and also the DC Dimming, important for gaming and video.
Specifications and technical characteristics
It is a 4nm TSMC SoC with octa-core CPU (1 x 3,2GHz + 3 x 2,85GHz + 4 x 1,8GHz) and Mali-G710 MC10 GPU. The smartphone was also spotted in the benchmarks on Geekbench while the official results on Antutu talk about 1.080.717 points.
As for memory cuts, there are various configurations with 8 / 12 GB of RAM L e 128 / 256 / 512 GB of storage UFS 3.1.
Furthermore Neo 7 focuses strongly on gaming thanks to the presentation of a chipset dedicated exclusively to the display: the independent SoC is called Pro + from the company. This should be an enhanced version of the solution Pixelworks X7 Pro (graphics chipset seen on board of various devices, including Realme GT 2 Master, eg).
On board the flagship killer we also find a large battery from 5.000 mAh with fast charge support from 120W (more powerful than the 80W of Neo 6), which will allow you to get 50% charge in just 9 minutes. There is also a system of liquid cooling with vapor chamber, a large solution (4013 mm2) to avoid overheating problems.
Software side we find Android 13 in the form of origin OS Ocean (we do not find the new version of the base 2.5 Forest). Then there is no shortage of Dual SIM 5G support, a Type-C port and NFC for payments.
As for the photographic sector, the smartphone is equipped with a triple module from 50 + 8 + 2 MP including sensor Sony IMX766V with OIS, the same seen on X70 Pro. The secondary modules are an ultra-wide and a macro lens. The style of the third sensor, with a square space, suggests a periscope zoom but in reality the device does not have this feature.
The company's product manager also posted a sample photographic of iQOO Neo 7 struggling with one shooting in low light conditions (a real night scene).
Moving on to the selfie camera, inside the punch hole there is space for a sensor from 16 MP.
