Published: Saturday 15 January 2022 12:59 p.m [IST]

iQOO launched the iQOO 9 series in China earlier this month. Now the brand is preparing to launch both the iQOO 9 and iQOO 9 Pro to the Indian market. However, the Indian variants should offer different features compared to their Chinese counterparts. Now the latest development reveals the characteristics of both Indian models. Let’s dive into the details.

Features of iQOO 9, iQOO 9 Pro Indian variants revealed

iQOO 9 features in India

the key specifications of the iQOO 9 Indian variant come to light via tipster Utsav Techie. The iQOO 9 is said to have a 6.56-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, 10-bit color and an intelligent display chip in India. The device is powered by the Snapdragon 888 Plus chipset instead of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor found in the Chinese variant. The processor of the iQOO 9 in India will be paired with LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage.

For imaging, the phone comes with a triple rear camera system consisting of a 48-megapixel main lens with a 12-megapixel ultrawide sensor and a 13-megapixel lens with a 50mm focal length. The device is said to support 120W fast charging, just like the Chinese variant. So we assume it could pack the same 4,700mAh battery in India. The Indian variant is also tipped to run Android 12 OS on the software front.

iQOO 9 Pro features in India

On the other hand, tipster Yogesh has Brar revealed the features of the iQOO 9 Pro in India. The device is said to feature a 6.78-inch curved AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. Like the Chinese model, the Indian variant of the iQOO 9 Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. The phone comes with 8GB/12GB RAM and 128GB/256GB storage.

For imaging, the iQOO 9 Pro offers a 50MP main camera paired with a telephoto camera and an ultra wide-angle lens. The Indian variant is also said to pack a 4,700mAh battery with 120W charging support. It will also run Android 12 OS.

iQOO 9, 9 Pro Expected Price in India

The exact pricing of both iQOO devices is still unknown. Tipster Utsav Techie only claimed that the Indian variant of the iQOO 9 will come with an aggressive price tag. The smartphone starts at 3,999 RMB (about Rs. 47,000) in China. With that in mind, we expect it could be around Rs 40,000 in India. If true, the iQOO 9 will compete with the recently launched OnePlus 9RT, which starts at Rs. 42,999 in India.

On the other hand, the iQOO Pro was launched from RMB 4,999 (about Rs. 58,600). This means it could cost around Rs. 50,000. However, we advise you to take this information with a grain of salt as the brand hasn’t shared anything about it yet.

Market launch of iQOO 9 series expected in India

As for the launch, it was previously hinted that the iQOO 9 and iQOO 9 Pro are set to be unveiled at the BGIS Finals in India. Now it seems that the launch could take a little longer. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more information about the launch.
