Vivo may be turning to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 once again for one of its next flagships. Reportedly, the device will arrive as the iQOO Neo 9s Pro Plus, possibly shortly after Vivo releases the MediaTek Dimensity 9300 Plus-powered iQOO Neo 9s Pro.

Vivo has only just recently released the iQOO Z9 Turbo, having announced the handset on April 24. Regardless, the company is said to be pressing ahead with another iQOO-branded flagship that should sit above the Z9 Turbo in its iQOO product stack. For context, Vivo equips the iQOO Z9 Turbo with the Snapdragon 8s Gen 3, a recent chipset that arguably shares just as many features with the Snapdragon 7 Plus Gen 3 as the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3.

By contrast, the iQOO Neo 9s Pro Plus is rumoured to contain the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, as well as 16 GB of RAM. Additionally, Digital Chat Station adds that Vivo will offer the handset in 512 GB and 1 TB of storage variants. According to the same leaker, the combination of these components alone will make the iQOO Neo 9s Pro Plus 'the ultimate affordable flagship'.

Moreover, the iQOO Neo 9s Pro Plus is said to feature the same display as its Neo 9 siblings. Consequently, it should arrive with a 6.78-inch LTPO AMOLED panel that resolves at 2,800 x 1,260 pixels with a 144 Hz refresh rate. Although a release date remains unknown for now, Vivo recently teased that the MediaTek Dimensity 9300 Plus-backed iQOO Neo 9s Pro is almost ready for an official launch. Thus, we doubt that it will be long before the iQOO Neo 9s Pro Plus receives the same fate.
