It’s only a matter of days until the world will witness the release of two new powerful smartphones that have the ‘iQOO’ logo on them. Therefore, both the iQOO Neo 8 and the Neo 8 Pro will be officially unveiled starting on May 23.

Luckily, a leakster was able to get his hands on the first images of the two phones in question. Usually, we all know that there’s no need for anyone to show iQOO the ropes when it comes to manufacturing smartphones. We can bet that it won’t be needed this time either, as all the hints indicate that both the iQOO Neo 8 and the iQOO Neo 8 Pro are outstanding smartphones.

Both the iQOO Neo 8 and the Neo 8 Pro will feature 5G compatibility

It’s certainly unsurprising to find out that both phones from iQOO are capable of 5G connectivity. Although 5G has slowly but surely become a standard, some companies still release smartphones nowadays that only run on the 4G network.

Judging by the new images of the upcoming phones, we have to remark on the rectangular camera setup that exists there, which consists of two large lenses, a smaller one as well as the LED flash.

What is unexpected is that, if the rumors are true, iQOO won’t rely on the highly-praised Snapdrwagon 8 Gen 2 processor from Qualcomm on its new phones. Instead, both the iQOO Neo 8 and Neo 8 Pro will sport the MediaTek Dimensity 9200+ chipset. It’s still hard to decide if Qualcomm’s better or vice versa. What’s for sure is that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is being used by the new Samsung Galaxy S23 flagship series that came out back in November.

For the Neo 8 model, we can also expect to see a 6.7-inches AMOLED display that has a refresh rate of 120Hz. Surely you cannot have powerful cameras on the phone without a capable display.
