iQoo Neo 9 Racing Edition Specifications Tipped; May Get This Chipset

iQoo Neo 9 Racing Edition is said to launch later this year. The handset will likely join the iQoo Neo 9 lineup, which was unveiled in China in December last year. The lineup consists of the iQoo Neo 9 and an iQoo Neo 9 Pro. The latter also made its way to India. Ahead of any official details about the Racing Edition, a tipster has suggested some key features of the purported smartphone. The iQoo Neo 9 Racing Edition is said to feature the same chipset as the Realme GT Neo 6.

Tipster Digital Chat Station shared in a Weibo post that a new iQoo Neo 9 variant could launch soon. They did not confirm the moniker but a MySmartPrice report suggests that it could be the iQoo Neo 9 Racing Edition. It is tipped to feature a 6.78-inch 1.5K 8T LTPO OLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate and a 2,160Hz PWM dimming rate. The 8T LTPO technology is said to help reduce power consumption and therefore increase battery efficiency. 

The tipster added that the iQoo Neo 9 Racing Edition could be powered by a chipset codenamed SM8635 that is said to be the Snapdragon 8s Gen 3 SoC. The same processor is also tipped to be equipped on the Realme GT Neo 6.

Further, the iQoo Neo 9 Racing Edition is said to carry a dual rear camera unit that could include a 50-megapixel Sony IMX920 primary sensor, and a secondary 8-megapixel sensor paired with an ultrawide lens, similar to the base iQoo Neo 9 model. The MSP report added that the handset may launch in April. More details about the phone are likely to surface closer to its launch.

iQoo Neo 9 comes with a 6.78-inch 144Hz full-HD+ AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, a 50-megapixel dual rear camera setup, and a 16-megapixel front camera. It ships with Android 14-based OriginOS and is backed by a 5,160mAh battery with support for 120W wired fast charging.
