The iQoo Neo 9s Pro series — which includes the iQoo Neo 9s Pro+ and Neo 9s Pro models — may be launched soon. While the Neo 9s series has been rumored for some time, recent reports have revealed that there will be not one, but two models making the Neo 9s a series that is expected to arrive after the launch of the iQoo Neo 9 Pro (which was recently released in India). The same report also sheds light on the alleged specifications of the iQoo Neo 9 Pro, which could turn out to be one of the first phones to ship with the MediaTek Dimensity 9300+ chipset. Now, more details about the more expensive model – the iQoo Neo 9s Pro+ – have been revealed by a tipster on a Chinese microblogging website.

The news comes from tipster Digital Chat Station via Weibo post which revealed a few details about the upcoming smartphone. A previous report saw the same tipster reveal that the unreleased smartphone will launch with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC. In its latest post, the tipster mentions that the iQoo Neo 9s Pro+ will be marketed as a mid-range device (or premium device in India) and that it will be launched later this year. This also means that both phones may not boot at the same time.

The source adds that the iQoo Neo 9s Pro+ will be equipped with a 6.78-inch display with a 1.5K resolution (2800 x 1260 pixels) and a 144Hz refresh rate. The device will also feature 2160Hz pulse width modulation (PWM) and DC dimming.

This device is said to feature a 50-megapixel primary camera and will be available in two variants. The former is a 16GB + 512GB RAM and storage configuration and the latter is a 16GB + 1TB variant. The tipster also adds that the phone will be equipped with a discrete graphics coprocessor like the iQoo 12, which has a dedicated Q1 supercomputer chip working alongside Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip.

The phone is expected to be priced very competitively according to the source, given that it will offer a top-of-the-line Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC at the higher end of the mid-range globally or at the lower end of the premium segment (if it comes to India ).

Earlier this year, iQoo launched its Neo 9 Pro smartphone in India, which offers a dual-tone vegan leather back panel. Which currently retails at Rs. 34,999 has a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip along with iQoo’s Q1 co-processor. It has a 6.78-inch AMOLED panel and is equipped with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage. The phone packs a 5160mAh battery and offers 120W wired charging using its own charger.
