Former Vivo sub-brand IQOO had announced its flagship smartphone in India called the IQOO 3. Over the past couple of months, it had been rumoured that the company is going to unveil a new smartphone in the lineup which is touted as the IQOO Neo 3. The smartphone was confirmed to launch on 23rd April a few days back. As far as the pricing goes, it is believed to be yet another budget flagship smartphone from the company. Now the device has been spotted on the benchmarking website AnTuTu which has revealed its specs in greater detail.
IQOO Neo 3 AnTuTu score
A new Vivo device with the model number V1981A has been spotted on AnTuTu. The phone has a Snapdragon 865 SoC, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. As for the refresh rate, the phone has 144Hz display, something that is only seen on the Nubia Red Magic 5G. This smartphone is undoubtedly the IQOO Neo 3 based on specs. The device had a score of 608,801 which is nearly as high as the Red Magic 5G which had a score of 633,724. If this is true, then you could expect some of the fastest performance in smartphone when the IQOO Neo 3 launches.
iQOO Neo 3 Specifications, what we know so far
Once again, let us revisit the spec sheet of the iQOO Neo 3. The phone is a flagship-grade device with the Snapdragon 865 chipset from Qualcomm handling the number crunching. While we still do not know the storage variants in which the phone would be made available, what we do know about the storage is that it will be UFS 3.1 compatible. Our past report did, however, talk about the possibility of the device being offered at least in a 6GB RAM +128GB storage variant.
Since we are yet to see an image of the phone, there is still no clarity around the size of the display used on the iQOO Neo 3. As stated earlier, we do know that this is an IPS LCD panel that supports 144Hz refresh rate. We have previously reported that the iQOO Neo 3 is likely to sport a single selfie camera housed within a punch-hole style cutout. The device is also confirmed to feature support for 5G networks in China. If this phone ever makes it to India, it will most probably come sans 5G support. The phone is also likely to run iQOO’s own custom UI atop an Android 10 core.
