Photo Announcement. Vivo iQOO Neo 7 - a million parrots in AnTuTu, almost for free!

A smartphone called Vivo iQOO Neo 7 has been announced in China. And... Whoo! I am impressed. Because formally, judging by the price, we should have a middle class that is not too sophisticated. But in fact, the filling is more than solid.

Iron. Not only that, Neo 7 was equipped with the MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ chipset, which usually scores over a million points in AnTuTu. In addition to it, they also screwed something auxiliary called "Pro +" - a separate graphics chip. They say that thanks to this chip, games will have higher fps and lower power consumption.

Memory. There are massesbut options. From a relatively modest 8 + 128 GB to an almost obscene 12 + 512 GB. No memory card support.

AMOLED screen. Large - 6.78 "(111 cm²). Standard resolution - 1080x2400 (388 ppi). Refresh rate - up to 120 Hz. Plus, they promise top brightness, P3 and other goodies.

Standard battery, 5000 mAh. But the charging speed is close to the record - 120 V. (From zero to 50%, the smartphone should be charged in 9 minutes).

Cameras. Of course, this is not a flagship level. 16 MP front, 50+8+2 MP rear. However, there is optical image stabilization. And the sensor of the main camera is quiteserious, very popular and very large Sony IMX766V. Those. Neo 7 is unlikely to get into the top ratings of camera phones, but you can still hope for a good picture.

Other. As expected, there is an NFC module, a sixth Wi-Fi, Type-C. The fingerprint scanner is built into the screen.

And also - Neo 7 - one of the first smartphones on Android 13 (plus a proprietary shell, of course).

Minor troubles include the lack of LTE Band 20.

And about money.

¥2699 (₽22800, $371), ¥2999 (₽25400, $412), ¥3299 (₽27900, $453) and ¥3599 (₽30400, $494) for varieties 8+128, 8+256, 12+ 256 and 12+512 GB respectivelyIndeed.
