In late 2022, iQOO introduced the Neo9 and Neo9 Pro smartphones, with the latter boasting a Dimensity 9300 chipset. Following MediaTek’s introduction of a plus variant of the Dimensity 9300 chipset, iQOO is now set to unveil an updated model equipped with this latest processor. This article dives into the latest iQOO Neo9s Pro, providing insights into its expected price in Nepal, specifications, and more.

IQOO Neo9s Pro Overview

Performance

iQOO has released the Neo9S Pro, an updated version of the Neo9 Pro. The Neo9S Pro features the upgraded Dimensity 9300+ chipset. It retains the in-house Q1 chip designed by iQOO to improve gaming performance by providing a more stable frame rate. The GPU on the 9300+ is the same as the regular 9300, with enhancements made to the CPU and APU. The chipset is paired with 16GB of LPDDR5X RAM and up to 1TB of UFS 4.0 storage.

In addition, the IQOO Neo9S Pro has a 5,160mAh battery with 120W wired fast charging but no wireless charging support.
