iQOO has confirmed the launch of Neo 7 Pro in the Indian market. So far, an official date has not been revealed, but rumors claim that the device will be made official at the end of June. It was recently listed on Geekbench and had leaked specs.
Before the Chinese manufacturer confirms its specifications, the informant Abhishek Yadav brought the device’s specifications and the forecast to be launched, in addition to confirming that it will be a renamed version of another smartphone from the Neo line available in China.
According to the leak, the iQOO Neo 7 Pro will be announced in the third week of June, at an event that will take place around the 20th. Based on the specifications, the phone appears to be a rebranded version of the iQOO Neo 8 5G, exclusive to the Chinese market and announced last month.
It is worth remembering that the iQOO Neo 8 5G was announced with the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 platform, while the iQOO Neo 8 Pro 5G hit the market with MediaTek’s Dimensity 9200 Plus chipset.
The iQOO Neo 7 Pro should cost below the ₹40,000 (~R$2,440) and compete with devices like OnePlus 11R 5G, Samsung Galaxy A54 5G and vivo V27 Pro 5G in the Indian market. However, if the specifications are correct, the Neo 7 Pro will be a performance-focused cell phone instead of bringing a complete set with a versatile camera module.
