iQoo may be working on a new smartphone to succeed the company’s iQoo Neo 9 Pro model that was launched earlier this year. According to details leaked by a Chinese tipster, the smartphone maker could be equipped with a powerful processor – Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip, which also powers the Vivo sub-brand iQoo 12 flagship. While the company has yet to announce plans for a new Neo-series phone, other specifications of the alleged smartphone, including its display, camera and fast charging have also been leaked.

Tipster Digital Chat Station (translated from Chinese) expired details of an unnamed smartphone equipped with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip that will sport a 1.5K LPTO AMOLED screen with a 144Hz refresh rate. The back panel of the phone is said to be made of glass or leather and will not have a plastic frame.

The leaker also claims that the phone will be equipped with a 50-megapixel primary camera and an unspecified secondary camera. It is also said to have a “large” battery with 120W fast charging support and features a short-focus fingerprint scanner and an X-axis vibration motor.

While the tipster did not mention the name of the alleged phone in the original Weibo post, a response from users claimed that the phone would be from either Realme or iQoo. The specifications of the phone suggest that it could appear as a successor to the iQoo Neo 9 Pro, which was launched in February.

The company’s recently launched Neo 9 Pro phone is powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip paired with up to 12GB of RAM. It features a 6.78-inch AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate. The smartphone is equipped with a 50-megapixel primary camera with a Sony IMX920 sensor, along with an 8-megapixel secondary camera.

It packs a 5160mAh battery with support for 120W SuperVOOC wired charging. The iQoo Neo 9 Pro has an optical fingerprint scanner for biometric authentication and comes with an IP54 rating for dust and splash resistance, according to the company.
