iQOO Neo 3 with Snapdragon 865 SoC officially teased


The iQOO 3 5G was unveiled a month ago and some were disappointed that the gaming phone came with a 60Hz screen. Now the company is teasing a new model - the iQOO Neo3 - that will feature a "higher refresh rate" display.

Vivo has begun teasing the arrival of the iQoo Neo 3 on its social accounts in China, and the company has revealed some of the phone's key specifications as well. Apart from the high-refresh-rate display, Vivo has also teased that the phone will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 SoC. It should be a successor to the Vivo iQoo Neo 855 range launched last year in China.

As for the teaser, Vivo's iQoo official account on Weibo has shared a post that says the upcoming phone will be called the iQoo Neo 3. Its launch details aren't mentioned, but it is teased to arrive soon. There is little else that has been detailed about the iQoo Neo 3 so far, but we expect the company to release more teasers in the coming days.

With this new upcoming launch, the company is skipping a moniker and instead of the Vivo iQoo Neo 2, it is jumping directly to the Vivo iQoo Neo 3. Given that the iQoo Neo was a gaming-centric phone, the company would likely continue that trend with its upcoming Neo-series phone as well. Just last month, Vivo introduced the iQoo 3 phones in India. That phone is also powered by the Snapdragon 865 SoC, and sports quad rear cameras as well. The iQoo 3 has a hole-punch display and offers faster UFS 3.1 storage. Its price starts at INR 36,990 in the country.

Notably, while iQoo is Vivo's sub-brand in China, it operates as an independent entity in India, so it would be interesting to see if iQoo is able to bring the 'Neo' lineup to India as well.
