The iQOO Neo3 5G offers the speed of the Snapdragon 865 chipset as it got 600,000+ points on AnTuTu fast.
This score was achieved with 8GB of RAM on board as well as 256GB of speedy UFS 3.1 storage.
While this is not the highest AnTuTu score we’ve seen, it’s still a pretty impressive result considering that this phone is targeting a price point of CNY 3,000 or lower (€390/$425) as that’s how much the Redmi K30 Pro costs.
And while the K30 is also powered by the S865 chip, it doesn’t come anywhere close to the 144Hz refresh rate of the Neo3 – in fact, there’s only one phone that can match it and it’s not even competing in this category. All other high refresh rate mobile screens out there are either 90Hz or 120Hz.
It will be the first phone to support adaptive refresh rate. The phone will automatically adjust the refresh and touch sampling rates to match the frame rate of the currently running app or game.
Outside of games, the screen will instantly go into 144Hz mode when you touch it to ensure that the UI is as smooth as possible (and then drop back to 60Hz to reduce power usage while nothing is happening).
The display will also use Qualcomm’s LTM tech (“local adaptive tone mapping”) that boosts the darker parts of the image to improve visibility under bright sunlight.
The iQOO Neo3 5G will be unveiled on April 23.
