iQOO 9T Specifications

The iQOO 9 sold in India differs from the original iQOO 9 from China. Whereas, the newly announced iQOO 9T in India is a rebranded iQOO 10 from China.

Additionally, the original iQOO 9 and the iQOO 10 are almost identical, except for the chipset. Since the original iQOO 9 was never released in India, the iQOO 9T (aka iQOO 10) feels like a completely new device in the country.

The iQOO 9T is built around a 6.78-inch Samsung E5 AMOLED display with a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels (FHD+) and up to a 120Hz refresh rate. The panel is protected by a layer of Schott Xensation UP glass and it supports HDR10, 1500 nits peak brightness level, and 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut.

The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset paired with LPDDR5 RAM, UFS 3.1 storage, and VC liquid cooling system. It also comes with a Vivo V1+ chip for image processing and display optimizations. It boots Funtouch OS 12.1 based on Android 12 and the company promises 3 Android updates and 4 years of security updates.

The connectivity options on the phone include dual SIM, 5G, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, GNSS, NFC, and a USB Type-C port. It arrives with dual stereo speakers and an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Last but not least, the IP52-rated iQOO 9T is backed by a 4,700mAh battery with support for 120W fast wired charging.
