The performance core is the Cortex A78 (x4), of which the highest frequency is 3.1GHz; plus, there are 4 energy efficiency cores (A55) at the main frequency of 2.0GHz. Compared with the Dimensity 8100, the Dimensity 8200 has been upgraded in technology, and the CPU frequency has been increased. At the same time, it integrates Mali-G610 GPU and APU 580. They increase the chip’s energy efficiency by 8% and 13%, respectively. The Dimensity 8200 supports FHD+ resolution displays up to 180Hz, and WQHD displays up to 120Hz. In AnTuTu, the chip’s benchmark score exceeded 900,000 points.

The Dimensity 8200 also has MediaTek’s Imagiq 785 image processor, a 14-bit HDR ISP that provides support for up to 320MP main camera, 4K 60Hz video recording. In addition, the chipset uses MediaTek’s APU 580 for artificial intelligence processing, supports 4K AV1 video decoding, adopts 3GPP Release 16 5G mode, supports sub-5GHz 5G networks, supports Bluetooth 5.3 with LE Audio, and Wi-Fi 6E, and also Supports quad-channel LPDDR5 memory and UFS 3.1 storage.

The Dimensity 8200 supports the Dimensity open architecture. It can cooperate deeply with terminal manufacturers to bring a more personalized and differentiated user experience.

MediaTek stated that devices using the new Dimensity 8200 SoC would enter the global market starting this month. Apart from this model, Xiaomi has officially announced the new model of the Redmi K60 series, the Redmi K60E will come with this chip as well.

iQOO Neo7 SE specs

The iQOO Neo7 SE also comes with an upgraded LPDDR5+UFS3.1 combination. The total area of ​​the full-coverage three-dimensional cooling system reaches 35090mm², significantly reducing the impact of high temperature on game performance.

The second selling point of this device is the 120W ultra-fast flash charging and a 5000mAh dual-cell battery.  The latter can only charge from 1% to 60% in 10 minutes.

The iQOO Neo7 SE uses a 6.78-inch 120Hz high-refresh-rate flexible straight screen. The latter has a 1000nit global maximum brightness, 8000000:1 contrast ratio, 1300nit local peak brightness, HDR 10+, and SGS low blue light certification.

Also, this phone is ideal for gaming. It is equipped with dual 10-fold touch micro-manipulation to improve the chirality; somatosensory control for racing games; there are also closed stereo dual speakers + 120° sound field widening algorithm, bringing a surging listening experience.

Camera and design

As for photography, the iQOO Neo7 SE adopts a 64-megapixel high-definition primary camera with clear texture and details. Also, it supports OIS (optical image stabilization) and can avoid hand-shake blur even in low-light environments. A variety of flagship image algorithms can easily cope with complex dark-light environments, making low-light shooting easy. The front-facing camera has a 16MP resolution.

Finally, in terms of appearance, the iQOO Neo7 SE has electronic blue, interstellar black, and galaxy colors. The camera module adopts a “film cloud scale” design. The body size is 76.90mm wide X 164.81mm long X 8.58mm thick, weighing 193g.
