Vivo has finally launched the iQOO Neo 855 Plus.
In Chinese, it is also referred to as iQOO Neo 855 Racing Edition.
For most of the part, this smartphone is identical to the iQOO Neo 855.
The main difference is the chipset. While the earlier model packs a Snapdragon 855 SoC, the iQOO Neo 855 Plus is equipped with a Snapdragon 855 Plus SoC.
The new smartphone retains the advanced ten-layer copper tube cooling system and Multi Turbo software features that optimize the device's performance in different scenarios.
Another difference is that the iQOO Neo 855 Plus has only two RAM+storage configurations: 8GB+128GB and 12GB+128GB. Unlike the previous model, the storage on the new model is from the UFS 3.0 type.
The design also remains the same with the Light Mint colour option replacing the purple color from the previous model.
