On Thursday, Chinese smartphone brand iQOO announced the release of its flagship gaming phone, the Neo 6, on April 13th.
The iQOO Neo 6 just obtained 3C certification under model No. V2196A. The device will be bundled with an 80W charger and measures 8.5mm thick with a 6.62-inch screen and a 4580mAh battery capacity.
The Neo6 can now be seen on benchmark test platform Geekbench where it is confirmed to feature a Qualcomm 8 Gen1 chip, 12 GB RAM and have Android 12 pre-installed.
iQOO has not yet released the body design of the Neo 6, but it seems to feature a large screen with a notch centered at the top of the device. Per the picture of Weibo digital blogger “pandaisbald”, the device will be available in black, orange and blue color schemes.
The iQOO Neo6 is made from rare earth materials with high thermal conductivity. Two rare earth elements, lanthanum and cerium, have been applied to the top metal coverings on the device to make them 200% more thermally conductive than traditional cooling systems.
Rare earth materials with high thermal conductivity have played an important role in the Neo5S. When the Neo5S with Qualcomm 888 flagship processor runs Genshin Impact mobile game, its frame rate is close to 60 frames on average while the smartphone maintains stable operation without heating up.
