Vivo’s sub-brand iQOO is set to launch iQOO Neo 7 on February 16 in India. It is a successor to the existing iQOO Neo 6 smartphone, which has performed well in the market. The Neo series offers flagship specifications at a mid-range specification. The Neo 6 became the best-selling smartphone on Amazon.in on the launch day itself.
