The iQoo Neo 8 will reportedly be launched soon as the company’s flagship smartphone series. The alleged smartphone lineup is expected to succeed the iQoo Neo 7 series that debuted last year in China. The upcoming series from the Chinese manufacturer is expected to include two models as part of its lineup – the vanilla iQoo Neo 8 and the higher-end iQoo Neo 8 Pro. The upcoming flagship series of smartphones has now undergone a final round of tips that offer some key specifications around the display, camera, performance module features and design of the upcoming lineup.
According to a post by tipster Digital Chat Station on the Chinese microblogging website Weibo that was re-shared on Twitter by tipster Mukul Sharma, the upcoming iQoo Neo 8 series may feature a display that offers 1.5K resolution viewing while supporting high-frequency PWM dimming. As mentioned above, the lineup may include the vanilla iQoo Neo 8 and iQoo Neo 8 Pro. Meanwhile, a report from MySmartPrice suggests that the series may have similar display dimensions to its predecessor iQoo Neo 7 series. This could mean that the iQoo Neo 8 series is expected to have a 6.78-inch AMOLED display.
The tipster expects the higher-end iQoo Neo 8 Pro to feature a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC. Meanwhile, the vanilla iQoo Neo 8 could be equipped with an as-yet-unannounced MediaTek Dimensity 9200+ SoC, the tipster added. MediaTek launched its current-generation flagship MediaTek Dimensity 9200 SoC only in November last year.
The Weibo post also suggests that the iQoo Neo 8 series will support 120W fast charging. To recall, its predecessor, the iQoo Neo 7 series also offers 120W fast charging. The tipster also expects the upcoming smartphone series to feature a 50-megapixel primary camera at the rear. The series is expected to feature up to 16GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.
The iQoo Neo 8 series is also said to launch in China sometime in May 2023. Although the iQoo Neo 7 series debuted in China late last year, comprising the iQoo Neo 7, iQoo Neo 7 5G, iQoo Neo 7 SE and iQoo Neo 7 Racing Edition, only one smartphone has made it to India so far as the iQoo Neo 7 model which is a rebranded version of the iQoo Neo 7 SE available in China. Hence, it remains to be seen if iQoo will launch more versions in India this time with the alleged iQoo Neo 8 series.
However, it is important to note that iQoo has not provided any official confirmation or indication regarding the specification, details, launch schedule and pricing of its upcoming flagship smartphone series.
