However, when it comes to the camera system, the Neo 7 Racing Edition looks better on paper with an additional 8MP ultra-wide sensor, which is missing in the Neo 8 5G.
The Neo 7 Pro is expected to be priced under Rs 40,000 in India and will take on the likes of the OnePlus 11R 5G, Samsung Galaxy A54 5G and the Vivo V27 Pro 5G in India. However, if the leaked specs are true, the Neo 7 Pro might be positioned as a performance-focused device instead of an all-rounder premium smartphone with a versatile camera setup.
