Vivo’s sub-brand iQOO announced the iQOO Neo5 S and Neo5 SE earlier this week, and today the company has expanded its product portfolio even further with the iQOO U5 – a smartphone that can make iPhones cheaper. cried.

With a price of only 1299 yuan equivalent to 4.6 million, iQOO U5 is powered by Snapdragon 695 SoC chip and has three RAM options of 4GB, 6GB and 8GB. It also comes with Memory Fusion 2.0, which allows virtual RAM expansion up to 4GB. Notably, the IQOO U5 runs OriginOS Ocean based on Android 12 right out of the box.

The smartphone that makes low-cost iPhones take their hat off also comes with a single memory option of 128GB but can be further expanded to 256GB thanks to a microSD card.

iQOO U5 has a 6.58″ 120Hz FullHD+ LCD screen with a waterdrop notch for the 8MP selfie camera. On the back we have a 50MP main camera coupled with a 2MP macro unit. The front and rear cameras support Super Night Scene mode. , but you don’t get that on the 4GB RAM model.

With the above parameters, it is clear that iQOO U5 is better than cheap but quite old iPhones like iPhone 7/Plus or iPhone 8/8 Plus. In terms of performance, iQOO U5 is completely enough to meet all the popular mobile games of today’s users without any difficulty.

Meanwhile, other cheap but old iPhones are often limited in screen size and old hardware, so even though the iQOO U5 price is equal, it is difficult to provide a good experience in performance.

The rest of the iQOO U5 highlights include a five-layer liquid cooling system, side-mounted fingerprint reader, High-Resolution Audio, 3.5mm headphone jack, and support 5G. These features continue to be the reason why iQOO U5 is worth buying over cheap iPhone models.

Competitors of low-cost iPhones are powered by a large 5,000 mAh battery, charged via a USB-C port with a capacity of up to 18W.

The base variant of iQOO U5 with 4GB RAM will be priced at CNY 1,299 (4.66 million VND), while the 6GB RAM and 8GB RAM models are priced at CNY 1,399, respectively (about 5 million VND) and 1,499 CNY (5.37 million VND). At the moment, it is unclear whether the iQOO U5 will be sold in markets outside of China. But if present in Vietnam, it will be a pretty big threat to low-cost iPhones.
