The iQOO Neo 7 Pro was launched in July last year in the Indian market at ₹34,999, and it was the most affordable phone with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. Today, the brand launched the iQOO Neo 9 Pro in the Indian market, the successor to the Neo 7 Pro.

It is worth mentioning that the iQOO Neo 9 Pro in the Chinese market is a different phone than what was launched in India today. The Neo 9 Pro in India is available in China as the Neo 9.

One of the biggest upgrades over the Neo 7 Pro is the design. The iQOO Neo 9 Pro looks completely different, thanks to a new camera module design that includes two large circles, each with a camera sensor. The phone comes in two colors, one of which has a two-tone finish on the back &  a vegan leather material. The other color option has an AG glass back.

The sides are flat, and so is the display on the front. There are stereo speakers, an X-axis vibration motor, and an under-display fingerprint sensor.
