The full interview seems to be around the 02:24:00 mark. At about 02:25:50 Fassbender slips out a new term that I know was bandied about on Covenant - Neomorph.

Well off the bat I assumed neo means new but then again the term essentially means mutant. So... it means nothing.  :-\

Perhaps instead of the XENO term (which I am personally not a fan of) we have the Neomorph, essentially the new alien  ???

It could also be that he isn't as well versed in Alien-lore and decidedly called it a neomorph instead of xenomorph?

Nah. It was deliberate. Like I said, I know that name was used during production.

It's quite likely. When they were working on Prometheus, they called the Jockey-Burster the Ultramorph. Seems quite likely that neomorph is another new design. Literally says new in the name. lol

Well, if that's the case then I hope the new design is actually the Alien design from the Covenant clapboard:

It's keanu reeves in Alien meets the Matrix. Basically neo is face hugged and births the neomorph.  :laugh:

For some reason I can't play the interview. What way does he use the term 'neomorph'?

Neo-Morph... New Form, New Shape...

Perhaps David is going to pull an Elden? Become a Black Goo Synth?
