The processor inside the top-end model is the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. This may be clubbed with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. iQOO brags powerful performance, extreme gaming, and seamless multitasking out of this setup. The teasers also present the design of the device and vaunts the tricolour striped look to be “iconic”. We also get a partial profile of the black/grey variant. The iQOO 9 Pro could also offer a 50MP triple rear camera stack, a 4700mAh battery, and a QHD+ curved LTPO AMOLED display with HDR10+ support.
The iQOO 9 could come bearing a Snapdragon 888+ SoC, LPDDR5 RAM, UFS 3.1 storage, Android 12, 48MP/50MP triple rear camera arrangement, a 6.56-inch FHD+ 120Hz AMOLED display with flat edges, and HDR10 support. As for the third handset of the family, the rumoured iQOO 9 SE could feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor and a 6.62-inch FHD+ AMOLED screen.
And now, the expected pricing —
Starting from the base, the iQOO 9 SE could carry a price tag between ₹35000 and ₹40000, the iQOO 9 could slot in between ₹43000 and ₹47000, while the highest-end variant of the iQOO 9 Pro 5G could be priced in between ₹55000 and ₹58000, even though its box price is apparently ₹74,990. These figures come from Passionategeekz, a site that had earlier disclosed the iQOO 9 launch date in India to be February 23, before the official declaration. Still and all, we suggest you take it with a grain of salt.
