iQOO debuted the iQOO 12 5G, which features the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor, in India last month. Soon after its launch, the company made hints about the Neo 9 Pro’s release in India. Today, the officials have confirmed that the device will launch on February 22. The iQOO Neo 9 and Neo 9 Pro smartphones, featuring the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and Dimensity 9300 chipsets, respectively, were introduced in China in December. Subsequently, reports suggest that the Neo 9 Pro in the Indian region would be a rebrand of the Neo 9 that was first made available in China. Here is a preview of what should be expected from the product.
