IQOO NEO 6 launch date has been announced

iQOO is preparing the terrain for the release of the iQOO Neo 6 in the country. The device will look very different to what we see on the Chinese market. There will be different specifications, and rumors have been going around for some time about this device. Today, the company confirmed that the iQOO Neo 6 is coming soon to India. While Vivo’s iQOO itself didn’t reveal the exact date, it seems that Amazon India let the information slip out.

Amazon India sent a push notification revealing the iQOO Neo 6 launch dates. According to this notification the new smartphone series is due to hit Indian markets on May 31. This information was not available in detail. This information is not available on the Amazon microsite. The iQOO India website’s event page also didn’t reveal the launch date at the moment of this writing. We know that it’s just a matter of time until that happens, especially with this “May 31” date. iQOO will likely keep building the hype through teasers in the forthcoming days.


It is worth noting that India’s first Neo 6 Series smartphone will be the iQOO Neo 6. The price of the device will be between INR 30,000 and INR 35,000 in India. Unlike the Chinese variant that has the current flagship SoC – Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 – the Indian variant will use the Snapdragon 870 SoC. It could be a rebranded iQOO Neo 6 SE with the exact same chipset that was just unveiled in China. Indian models may come with 8 GB and 12GB RAM and 128GB and 256GB Internal Storage.

The iQOO Neo 6 features a 6.62-inch AMOLED touchscreen with Full HD+ resolution. The device has a 120 Hz refresh speed and a punch-hole cutout in its center. The back of the phone will have a triple camera setup. It includes a 64MP main camera, a 12-MP ultrawide snapper and a 2MP black and white sensor. A 16 MP camera sits on top of a punch-hole cutout for selfies and video calling. Android 12 OS is available on the device. India will soon get a FuntouchOS 12 skin. It has a 4,700 mAh battery and 80 W fast-charging support.

We expect iQOO and the media to continue building hype about the upcoming smartphone. There are still two weeks until the launch. Rumours of an iQOO Neo 6 Series variant with the Snapdragon778G have circulated. However, this variant has been omitted from our radars as it did not run Geekbench until a few months back.
