iQOO, earlier this year, launched the iQOO Neo 5 in China. The smartphone features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC and a 48MP triple-camera setup. The company launched the device in India as the iQOO 7. It looks like iQOO is working on a slightly tweaked version of the Neo 5 with a powerful processor. According to a new rumour, the iQOO Neo 5s will launch soon in China. It will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC under the hood. This means that the smartphone will share the same processor found on the iQOO 7 Legend. While Snapdragon 870 SoC is no slouch, the Snapdragon 888 offers slightly more power.

Tipster Arsenal has also listed some other key parameters of the device. The tipster states that iQOO will launch the phone with a 4500 mAh battery under the hood. It will come with 66W fast charging support. For better thermal management, the phone will have a second-generation liquid cooling system.
The phone will also come with a 6.56-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with a 1080 x 2376 pixel resolution. The 10-bit colour display will come with up to 120Hz refresh rate support. The screen will also come with a second-generation display chip that increases the frame rate intelligently and optimises the colours. We can also expect the phone to sport a hole-punch cutout at the top for the front camera.
The tipster further notes that the device will have a triple-camera setup on the back. It will have a 48MP Sony IMX598 sensor for shooting wide shots. Details of the other two sensors remain unknown. We can expect the phone to feature an 8MP ultrawide and a 2MP macro camera sensor. For selfies and video calls, iQOO will launch the phone with a 16MP front camera sensor.
Other specs include a dual-speaker setup, linear motor for haptics, etc. The phone is said to launch in two variants. The base 8GB RAM variant with 128GB will launch for CNY 2,999 (roughly Rs 35,000), whereas the 12GB + 256GB model will be priced at CNY 3,499 (roughly Rs 40,900)
