A few months back, iQOO took to China to uncover the iQOO Neo5 smartphone – which was later rebranded as the iQOO 7 for the Indian market.
At the time of launch, the highest variant of the iQOO Neo5 came with 256GB of in-built storage, which is relatively ok. However, it seems the smartphone maker wasn’t satisfied with that storage size.
Hence, iQOO has announced the arrival of a new storage variant of the iQOO Neo5 smartphone. And the company mentions that the 512GB storage option of the handset will launch in its home market soon.
Since the smartphone’s announcement came before the Double Eleven shopping festival in China, it appears that iQOO intentionally announced the 512GB variant before Nov. 11, and it might feature in the upcoming Chinese shopping festival.
The 512GB storage model of the iQOO Neo5 smartphone packs 12GB of RAM, and it will arrive in color options like Night Shadow Black and Cloud Shadow Blue. iQOO has listed the new smartphone variant on its China website, and the new variant will go on sale starting Nov. 1.
The 512GB storage model of the iQOO Neo5 lists for 3,399 Yuan (~$531). After discounts, the new storage model will sell for as low as 3,099 Yuan on JD.com.

The iQOO Neo5 packs a 6.62-inch AMOLED Full HD+ panel that offers a 120Hz refresh rate. The handset boots to the OriginOS 1.0 based on Android 11 OS, and it features the Snapdragon 870 chipset.
