In the recent Geekbench listing, the iQOO Neo 5 is listed with the model number V2055A, which corroborates past leaks. The handset is seen with Android 11 and 12GB RAM in the listing.
Additionally, the listing mentions the ‘Kona’ chipset, which is the codename associated with the Snapdragon 865. However, the clock speed of 3.19GHz and Android 650 GPU in the benchmark points towards the Snapdragon 870 SoC, which is in line with the previous leaks. Considering that the Snapdragon 870 is based on the same design as the Snapdragon 865 and 865+, the ‘Kona’ name in the Geekbench listing does not come as a surprise.
