iQoo Neo 9 Pro may launch in India soon. It is confirmed to debut in China alongside the iQoo Neo 9 on December 27. The company has been teasing the iQoo Neo 9 series for a few weeks now. Recently, they also released a teaser video that confirmed some key specifications of the handset. Other than official announcements, details about the upcoming handsets have also been leaked online. Meanwhile, a tipster has suggested the India launch details of the iQoo Neo 9 Pro model.
Tipster Mukul Sharma (@stufflistings) suggested in a post on X that the iQoo Neo 9 Pro model will launch in India in January 2024. The Indian variant is likely to be similar to its Chinese counterpart in most ways. It is even tipped to come with the dual-tone red and white colour option that has been spotted on most promotional images of the phone. However, the tipster claims that the Indian variant of the iQoo Neo 9 Pro will carry a Snapdragon Gen 2 SoC instead of the MediaTek Dimensity 9300 chipset that the Chinese version is confirmed to carry.
