The Vivo iQoo Neo 7 5G runs on the Android 13-based Funtouch OS 13. It also has a gorgeous 6.78-inch FHD+ AMOLED display that will amp up your gaming and media viewing experience.

For videos, you can record them in 4k on 60 frames per second with the rear camera. However, on the front camera, you can only record in 1080p at 30 frames per second. Even though the camera is not one of the highlight features of this phone, it does offer cool modes like portrait, night, micro movie, slow motion, time-lapse, panorama, sports and dual-view.
The phone also has an in-display fingerprint sensor, an infrared sensor and stereo speakers (that are perfect for gaming). It also comes with Bluetooth 5.3, NFC and a powerful (and longlasting) 5,000 mAh battery with 120W fast charging support. This phone can be fully charged in just 30 minutes, which is one of the most important characteristics of the new model, especially if you’re a gamer.
The Vivo iQOO Neo 7 5G comes in two colours – a cool Frost Blue and a classy Interstellar Black.
