iQOO Neo 5 India Version To Feature Snapdragon 870 & 66W Fast Charging

Going by how many platforms the iQOO Neo 5 has gone through, its India launch should not be too far away.

Previously, we reported a few specifications of the iQOO Neo 5, which was later confirmed by the phone’s listing on Google Play Console. Now, the handset has just been spotted on Geekbench by tipster Abhishek Yadav along with some new details. It again confirms previous speculations about the phone running a Snapdragon 870 SoC. This version of the iQOO Neo 5 is running on Android 11 on Geekbench with 8GB RAM. The setup helps it achieve 951 points in the single-core test and 3,359 points in the multi-core test. The scores are in line with other Snapdragon 870-powered phones like the Moto Edge S, which also visited Geekbench recently. 

The handset was also listed on China’s 3C certification website and the listing there revealed that the device will support 66W wired fast charging technology and come with a compatible fast charger. If the Neo 5 will indeed arrive with a 4,000 mAh battery per a previous tip, you can expect the phone to be fully charged in just 30 minutes.
