Companion Device

The Companion device is a flagship Android smartphone. It is a regular phone that is not customized or modified in any way. To ensure maximum stability and performance we can only support a small number of carefully selected and tested models. The Neon Companion app is tuned to work with these particular models as we require full control over various low-level functions of the hardware.

The supported models are: OnePlus 8, OnePlus 8T, OnePlus 10 Pro, and Motorola Edge 40 Pro. Currently, Neon ships with a Motorola Edge 40 Pro. We highly recommend the Edge 40 Pro, giving you the best performance, endurance and stability.

If you want to replace or add an extra Companion device you can purchase it directly from us or from any other distributor. The Neon Companion app is free and can be downloaded from the Play Store.

Using a fully charged Motorola Edge 40 Pro device you get around 4 hours of continuous recording time. You can extend this duration by simultaneously charging the phone during a recording using a powered USB-C hub.

Companion Device Updates

Neon Companion app

Make sure to update the Neon Companion app on a regular basis. The latest version will always be available on the Play Store.

Android OS

We ship each Companion Device with a specific Android Version, carefully tested to ensure robustness and stability.


We recommend that you don't allow Android system updates on your device. Some Android versions have issues with accessing USB devices, rendering them incompatible with Neon.

If you purchased your device from a third-party distributor, you'll need to ensure that the correct Android version is installed. The currently supported Android versions are as follows:

  • On OnePlus 8 and 8T: Android 11
  • On OnePlus 10 Pro: Android 12 and 13
  • On Moto Edge 40 Pro: Android 13 and 14
  • On Moto Edge + (2023): Android 13 and 14
  • On Moto X40 Pro: Android 13 and 14 (global ROM required)


Should you have upgraded to an incompatible Android version by accident, you have the option to rollback to a compatible version. You can find the instructions here
