While January 2024 is loaded with new smartphone releases, there is one brand that has confirmed things a month in advance. Vivo’s sub-brand iqoo has confirmed the launch of iQOO Neo 9 Pro in India in February 2024.

iQOO Neo 9 Series
iQOO launched the iQOO Neo 9 Series in China in December 2023. It included the iQOO Neo 9 and iQOO Neo 9 Pro. Reports claim that iQOO will bring only the Pro model to India and it will give tough competition to the Poco X6 and OnePlus 12R. Since it has already been launched in China, we know what iQOO Neo 9 Pro will look like.
iQOO Neo 9 Pro: Expected India Specs
In India, iQOO Neo 9 Pro is expected to have a 6.78-inch AMOLED panel with 144Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ support. It will most likely be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset with up to 16GB LPDDR5X RAM and up to 1TB onboard storage. The device will feature an Adreno 740 GPU.
The smartphone will run Android 14 with Origin OS 4.0 and is expected to pack a 5160mAh battery with 120W wired fast charging support.
