IQOO Neo 9 and Neo 9 Pro – Flagship Excellence Under $325!


The Neo series gets its most recent and further developed competitors as the iQOO Neo 9 and Neo 9 Pro Genius. The pair of cost-effective flagships have been launched in China today and arrive to replace the iQOO Neo 8 series. The iQOO Neo 9 comes with high-end specs including powerful hardware and an AMOLED display with a high refresh rate. However, these devices are cheaper than the iQOO 12 and iQOO 12 Pro, giving iQOO fans more options in the lower price range. Without further ado, let’s see what they have in store for the competitive market.


The iQOO Neo 9 and Neo 9 Pro come with a 6.78-inch AMOLED display with 2,800 x 1,260 pixels resolution and 144Hz refresh rate. The panel of these devices has a 20:9 aspect ratio, 93.43% screen-to-body ratio, and HDR 10+ support. Under the hood, we can find major differences between these two devices. The vanilla iQOO Neo 9 boasts Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, while the Pro model has Dimensity 9300 chipsets. Both chipsets are 4nm, but the Dimensity 9300 gets an advantage thanks to the latest ARMv9 cores.


Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 with 1 x ARM Cortex-X3 core at 3.2 GHz, 2 x ARM Cortex-A715 cores at 2.8 GHz, 2 x ARM Cortex-A710 cores at 2.8 GHz, and 3 x ARM Cortex-A710 cores at 2.0 GHz The chipset has Adreno 740 which can handle all the games on Play Store without any problem. When it comes to the iQOO Neo 9 Pro, it features the latest MediaTek Dimensity 9300 SoC with a very interesting core arrangement. It has 1 x ARM Cortex-X4 core at 3.25 GHz, 3 x ARM Cortex-X4 cores at 2.85 GHz, and 4 x ARM Cortex-A720 cores at 2.0 GHz. The Dimensity 9300 does not have performance-focused cores because it is a performance-focused chip. There is a powerful Immortalis G720 GPU for graphics.


Both the iQOO Neo 9 and 9 Pro run Android 14 with OriginOS 4 and pack up to 16 GB of RAM. Both smartphones are also equipped with the Q1 dedicated chip which works to boost gaming performance and ensure stable frame rates. The Q1 chip was launched with the iQOO 12 series and it’s great to see that it’s also available with the affordable iQOO Neo9 series. This chipset will improve your experience with games and take the weight of the GPU to ensure stable frame rates and smooth refresh rates on games.
