The iQOO Neo6 is an Android smartphone that offers powerful, performance-focused specs headed by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor for not much more than US$400 in China. Now, however, it is said to get a successor with MediaTek's latest, fastest chipset instead. The Dimensity 9000 Plus might get a flat high-refresh-rate display to drive in this apparently upcoming 7.

iQOO launched its 10 series with an arsenal of the most cutting-edge specs known to the Android flagship-refresh genre around. Then again, some fans might have been slightly disappointed when the line failed to produce the Dimensity 9000+ variant to which it had beome linked in its pre-launch rumors. However, it now seems this device might be on the way after all, just under a different name than rumored.

The eminent leaker Digital Chat Station now asserts that there is an upcoming iQOO handset eligible to join the (currently super-exclusive) 9000+ club after all - it just won't be a part of the 10 series. Instead, it is now touted to launch as what might be the next Neo-series flagship instead.

With its alleged flat, 120Hz AMOLED display, kept on with a "large battery" capable of the brand's hallmark fast charging, it is described as having a suspiciously large amount in common with the 8+ Gen 1-powered 10, yet as having been shunted sideways into the Neo line for some reason.

Given iQOO's recent enthusiasm for high-frequency product launches, this 'Neo7' might be here sooner rather than later. However, should it launch with the specs mentioned in the new Digital Chat Station post, its chances of doing so outside China are, unfortunately, slim to none at present.
