It is said to succeed the iQoo Neo 8 series that launched with an iQoo Neo 8 and iQoo Neo 8 Pro model. The purported Neo 9 series has not yet been confirmed by the company but is likely to arrive with considerable upgrades over its preceding models. Now, a tipster has suggested the camera details of what is speculated to be the iQoo Neo 9 models.
Tipster Digital Chat Station (translated from Chinese) suggested in a Weibo post that an upcoming iQoo smartphone will carry a 1.49-inch Sony IMX920 50-megapixel primary rear camera sensor.

The handsets are said to come equipped with large, high-quality AMOLED screens and offer high-speed charging support.
