(Pocket-lint) - Neato has revealed three new flagship robot vacuum cleaners - D8, D9 and D10 to follow up the D7, D6 and D4 currently on the market. The launch took place at IFA 2020 in Berlin, normally Europe's biggest tech show but scaled down this year for obvious reasons. 

The new range retains the 'D' shape chassis of all Neato models - great for getting into corners says the San Jose-based company - but has a refined, smart design which looks a little less fussy than before. 

The Neato D10 has a run time of up to 150 minutes while it's new True HEPA filter captures up to 99.97% of allergens and particles like dust and dander as small as 0.3 microns. It also has a new LaserSmart LIDAR-based guidance system. 

The D9, on the other hand, has 120 minutes of run time while the D8 boasts 90 minutes. 

Neato started from a project at Stanford University and has consistently produced top-notch robot vacuums with zone cleaning, floor plan mapping and 'no-go lines'. The company says it has made it easier to set up a new vacuum with this latest release.
