Announcement. Gaming smartphone Vivo iQOO Neo5 5G (+ AliExpress price)

Vivo iQOO gaming smartphone announced in ChinaNeo5. As befits a modern gaming smartphone, it has a very powerful hardware, ultra-fast charging, a screen with a high refresh rate. On the other hand, they have clearly saved money on cameras. But let's talk about everything in order.

First, about the money.

Oddly enough, the smartphone has already appeared in the corporatestore Vivo on AliExpress. $ 399.98 (₽29,900), $ 449.98 (₽33,700) and $ 499.98 (₽37,400) for versions 8 + 128 GB, 8 + 256 GB and 12 + 256 GB, respectively. Curiously, Chinese prices are not much lower. ¥ 2499 (₽28100, $ 384), ¥ 2699 (₽30400, $ 415) and ¥ 2999 (₽33800, $ 461), respectively.

The filling inspires respect.The chipset is super powerful, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 itself. This is in the region of 650 thousand AnTuTu points. You already understood about the amount of memory. 8 or 12 GB of RAM (though only LPDDR4X), 128 or 256 constant (UFS 3.1). There is no memory card support.

The screen is large, top-end. AMOLED-matrix with a diagonal of 6.62 ″. High resolution - 1080 × 2400 (398 ppi). The refresh rate is up to 120 Hz.

Medium battery, only 4400 mAh. But charging is super fast - 66 W (half an hour from zero to 100%). Wireless charging is not supported.

The set of cameras is quite modest. 16 MP frontal.At the back is a trio of 48 + 13 + 2 MP (main module, wide-angle, depth sensor). What to expect from the cameras is not very clear. Better to wait for any reviews. Although the presence of optical stabilization inspires timid optimism.

There is an NFC module, support for 5G networks, dual-band Wi-Fi (only the fifth, though). No normal audio output. There is no support for "our" LTE bands - neither the seventh nor the twentieth.

The price is humane, no doubt about it. Another question - do you and I need a Chinese with our LTE? And what has he got with Google services - another question.

But how good the golden color is! At least on my monitor screen.
