iQOO Neo9 Pro is launching in India very soon but with a nerfed processor versus China model.
iQOO is set to debut its flagship model in India this month. This smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm SoC, a letdown compared to the China model.
The iQOO Neo9 Pro was launched in China last year. That flagship phone is powered by MediaTek Dimensity 9300, with over 2.2 million AnTuTu points on its own.
This same device is landing in India on February 22. However, it’s powered by a lower Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, which scores over 1.5 million AnTuTu points on its own.
Despite the nerfed chipset, an India launch may enable a full rollout of the device in other territories. So, if you’re an iQOO user, the announcement is great news.
The iQOO Neo9 Pro is expected to have the following specs:
- Snapdragon 8 Gen 2
- Up to 12GB RAM
- Up to 256GB ROM
- 1.5K AMOLED display panel
- 144Hz refresh rate
- 2160 PWM dimming rate
- Android 14 with OriginOS
- 50 MP Sony IMX920 main rear sensor with OIS
- 50 MP ultrawide rear camera sensor
- 5160mAh battery with 120W fast charging
As usual, everyone wants to know how much this model costs. A report suggested that iQOO Neo9 Pro for India may be priced at ₱27,043.62 (INR 40,000). It’s likely to be sold via Amazon and the iQOO e-store. But we’ll know for sure once the device goes live on February 22.
