Vivo’s iQOO brand has introduced a new flagship smartphone, the iQOO Neo 3 5G. This handset has a lot to offer, and it got announced in China today.

The iQOO Neo 3 5G is a phone made out of metal and glass. It comes with rather thin bezels, though its ‘chin’ is noticeably thicker than the rest. A display camera hole is also included here, it’s placed in the top-right corner.


There are three cameras placed on the back of the device, in the top-left corner. The back of the device is curved, and the camera module protrudes a bit.

A fingerprint scanner is included as well, but it’s not an under-display one. You’ll notice a fingerprint scanner on the right-hand side of this phone (it doubles as a power / lock key). That is also where the volume up and down buttons are.

All in all, the phone’s design is exactly what you’d expect out of a 2020 flagship. It ticks all the boxes in that regard. It’s also not small by any means, as it comes with a 6.57-inch flat display. That is a fullHD+ LCD panel with 144Hz refresh rate.

The company says that this phone’s screen-to-body ratio is 90.4-percent. The phone is fueled by the Snapdragon 865 64-bit octa-core processor, and it supports 5G SA/NSA (dual-mode).

The device includes 6GB / 8GB / 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB / 256GB of UFS 3.1 flash storage. Android 10 comes pre-installed on the phone, along with iQOO UI 1.0. This phone can also host two nano SIM cards.

A 4,500mAh battery is included in the package, and it supports 44 Super FlashCharge 2.0 fast charging. It does not offer support for wireless charging, though.

A 3.5mm headphone jack is included, as is the AK4377A Hi-Fi chip. Stereo speakers are a part of the package, and the phone has the Hi-Res audio certification.


The phone includes three cameras on the back

A 48-megapixel main camera (Sony’s IMX582 sensor, f/1.79 aperture, EIS) is included on the back. That camera is backed by an 8-megapixel ultra-wide sensor (f/2.2 aperture), and a 2-megapixel macro camera (f/2.4 aperture).

A single 16-megapixel camera can be found on the front side of this phone. The phone does come with Bluetooth 5.1, and it supports dual 4G VoLTE, along with 5G SA/NSA.

The iQOO Neo 3 5G comes in Blue Black and Sky Blue color variants. The phone’s pricing starts at CNY 2,698 ($381) in China, and it goes all the way up to CNY3,298 ($465) for the 12GB RAM variant. We’re not sure in what other markets will the device become available.
