iQOO Launches Neo 9 and Neo 9 Pro Phones with 144Hz Displays and Fast Charging

Smartphone maker iQOO just announced two new phone models in China: the Neo 9 and Neo 9 Pro. As the next versions of last year’s Neo 8 series, these phones aim to deliver premium features at more affordable prices.

The most eye-catching aspects are the fast 144Hz displays and ultra-fast 120W charging speeds. Both phones have 6.78-inch OLED screens with a sharp 1.5K resolution and HDR10+ for vivid colors and contrast. The 144Hz refresh rate enables smoother scrolling and gameplay.

Recharging the large 5,160mAh batteries from zero to 50% takes just 8 minutes with the blazing 120W wired charging. Both phones also support 50W wireless charging.
