Vivo Intros iQOO Neo 855 With 33W Charging & Snapdragon 855


Vivo has just announced a new gaming smartphone, the iQOO Neo 855. This is the third iQOO Neo series smartphone that got announced in the last three months.

The Vivo IQOO Neo handset was announced back in July, while the iQOO Neo Pro followed in August. The original iQOO Neo was fueled by the Snapdragon 845 SoC, while the Neo Pro came with the Snapdragon 855 Plus.

The Vivo IQOO Neo 855 comes with the Snapdragon 855, and a 4,500mAh battery

The Vivo iQOO Neo 855 is fueled by the Snapdragon 855, which is easy to guess based on its name. Its processor is not the only change here, though. This phone also comes with faster charging than the regular iQOO Neo.


Other than those differences, the device is pretty much the same as the other two phones. It even shares the same design as the other two devices.

This phone comes with a 4,500mAh battery, which offers 30-percent faster charging than the original iQOO Neo. It comes with 33W fast wired charging, compared to 22.5W on the original Neo. The Pro model offers 44W charging, and is in a league of its own as far as that is concerned.

The iQOO Neo 855 is made out of metal and glass. The device is curved on the back, on the sides, and includes the iQOO logo on the bottom. Three cameras are placed on the back of this phone, and they are vertically-aligned. That camera setup does protrude on the back, a bit.


All the physical keys are placed on the right-hand side of this phone. The volume up and down buttons sit above the power / lock key.

The device has really thin bezels. It includes a tiny dewdrop notch at the top of the display, while a 'chin' is included on the bottom as well. The phone also includes an in-display fingerprint scanner.

Three rear cameras and 8GB of RAM

The phone features a 6.38-inch fullHD+ (2340 x 1080) AMOLED display, along with 6GB / 8GB of RAM and 64GB / 128GB / 256GB of internal storage.


The device has the same rear camera setup as the original Neo. It includes 12-megapixel (f/1.8 aperture, 1.4um pixel size, dual pixel PDAF), 8-megapixel (f/2.2, wide-angle lens), and 2-megapixel (f/2.4 aperture, depth sensor) cameras on the back.

A single 16-megapixel (f/2.0 aperture) camera can be found on the phone's front side. Android 9 Pie comes pre-installed on the device, along with Funtouch OS 9.

The phone is equipped with a liquid cooling solution with a thin long pipe. The device will become for pre-order until October 31. It comes in Purple, Aurora White, and Black color variants. The variant with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage is priced at CNY1,998 ($283), while that very same RAM model with 128GB of storage costs CNY2,298 ($325). Two models with 8GB of RAM are available, one with 128GB of storage, the other with 256GB of storage. Those two variants are priced at CNY2,498 ($353) and CNY2,698 ($382).
