In India and some Asian markets, iQOO unveiled the iQOO 12 flagship phone last month. The brand announced yesterday it will launch a Neo-branded smartphone in India soon. A new teaser confirms that the iQOO Neo9 Pro will be available in India in February.
There is a teaser for the iQOO Neo9 Pro showing a dual-tone design in red and white. The brand has yet to reveal the device’s specifications. The Neo 9 and Neo 9 Pro were introduced by iQOO in December with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and Dimensity 9300 chipsets, respectively. In India, the Chinese Neo9 will be rebranded as the iQOO Neo9 Pro.
There may be a non-Pro model in the works based on the arrival of the Neo9 Pro variant. It is unknown whether the iQOO Neo9 will be available in India at present.
