iQOO 9 Series: What To Expect?

The Indian variants of both the iQOO 9 and the Pro were spotted on the IMEI database. The latter usually come with the 'Legend' moniker instead of 'Pro'.The IMEI database listing did not reveal any features except for the monikers. Also, the brand has not shared key features of the iQOO 9 series yet. We expect to get a few upgrades over the iQOO 8 series including software, camera, and connectivity.

To recall, the iQOO 8 was announced with a 6.56-inch AMOLED display with 1080 x 2376 pixels resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. The iQOO 8 is powered by the Snapdragon 888 SoC and packs a 4,350 mAh battery unit with 120W fast charging support. Other features include 48MP triple cameras and 16MP selfie camera. We expect better camera features from the upcoming iQOO 9.


On the other hand, the iQOO 8 Pro has a 120Hz display, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 Plus SoC, and a 4,500 mAh with 120W fast charging and 50W fast wireless charging support. It also offers a triple camera system including a 50MP IMX766V sensor with gimbal stabilization support, a 48MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 16MP camera sensor. Other features include a 16MP front camera sensor, an in-display fingerprint sensor, and so on.

iQOO 8 Series Not Coming To India?

The company has not yet confirmed that it won't launch the iQOO 8 Series in India. Also, the iQOO 8 series handsets visited multiple websites such as BIS and IMEI. So, there is a chance the brand could bring smartphones to the country. It will be better to take with a pinch of salt until official info comes out.
