A few weeks ago, iQOO released its iQOO Neo6, powered by the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen1 flagship chipset from Qualcomm. From the chipset, it can be concluded that this phone lies in the flagship category. However, the industry’s latest reports claim that the company is working on another model with lower-level specifications and a more affordable price.
This morning, iQOO officially announced (on Weibo) that the company will launch the new iQOO Neo6 SE (maybe Special Edition) on May 6 at 7:30 PM (Chinese Timing). In the announcement, the company hasn’t revealed the appearance of the phone but some significant specifications.
As revealed, the new iQOO Neo6 SE will be powered by the Snapdragon 870 sub-flagship chipset from Qualcomm, which has similar specifications as the Snapdragon 865 series, but the top-end core is clocked @3.2GHz.
Moreover, it has also undergone 11 rounds of performance tuning and is also equipped with an overclocked version of UFS 3.1 and supports UFS Deep Defragmentation 2.0 technology (as said by the officials).
Previously, it was also revealed that the majority of specifications of iQOO Neo6 SE would be similar to the standard iQOO Neo6. It will feature 6.62 inches Full-HD+ OLED Display (with a single center punch-hole) which would also support a 120Hz refresh rate. Inside the phone, there would be a 4700mAh battery with 80W fast charging support.
Currently, the standard iQOO Neo6 is priced at 2799 yuan ($425), from which we can conclude that the new iQOO Neo6 SE will be priced lower.
