The Chinese smartphone brand iQOO launched its iQOO Neo 6 smartphone in its domestic market last week in the mid-premium price segment. iQOO Neo 6 happens to be one of the most affordable devices to feature Snapdragon 8 Gen1 chipset and now, in a new development, the smartphone has apparently received approval from the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). This hints toward the fact that iQOO Neo 6 is arriving in India pretty soon. Let’s find out more.
According to recent screenshots shared by the known tipster Mukul Sharma, two handsets from the brand with model numbers I2022 and I2126 have bagged certification from BIS. The spotted model numbers are for iQOO Neo 6 and iQOO Z6 Pro devices and the latter has been scheduled to launch on April 27. Based on this intel, it is possible that iQOO Neo 6 could be introduced in India in May. Let’s take a look at the specification details for iQOO Neo 6.
