iQOO recently launched their new smartphone iQOO 9 in China earlier this week. At the launch event, the company did not announce the global availability of the phone, nor about its launch in India. However, the company today has officially announced that the smartphone iQOO 9 will soon launch in the Indian market. The announcement was made while announcing iQOO 7 Legend as the official smartphone for Battlegrounds Mobile India series ongoing finals. The company is yet to announce the exact date for the launch of the smartphone but it is expected that the smartphone will be launched in early February.
The phone has two variants which are iQOO 9 and iQOO 9 Pro. The smartphone is one of the few that has been powered by the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and also supports 120W fast charging through the wire. Although, since the phone is launched as a premium smartphone, it will not be launched in India at an affordable rate as the previous smartphones from the company. The phone comes with a 6.78-inch LTPO 2.0 E5 AMOLED display and FHD+ resolution. It also supports HDR and a 120Hz refresh rate. The phone comes with 12GB of RAM and 512GB of onboard storage as well and runs OriginOS out-of-the-box based on Android 12.
It will feature VC liquid cooling to keep lower temperatures while gaming. The front display also gets an in-display fingerprint along with a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera. The rear gets a triple camera setup with a 50MP primary sensor and 13MP ultra-wide sensor along with a 12MP depth sensor. The 4,700 mAh battery with 120W fast charging through wired support can easily make the phone last for a day with mixed-use. The Pro variant comes with a 6.78-inch 2K E5 AMOLED LTPO 2.0 display with a 360 Hz sampling rate and 50W fast wireless charging. The rear has two 50MP camera sensors as primary and ultra-wide with a 16MP portrait sensor.
