iQOO 9 and 9 Pro to debut on January 5, leaked poster reveals

Vlad, 24 December 2021

vivo sub-brand iQOO is getting ready to unveil its next flagship smartphone duo, comprised of the iQOO 9 and the iQOO 9 Pro. According to a leaked poster that surfaced in China today, these will become official at an event on January 5.

As you can see from the image below, the iQOO 9 has a racing stripe design and an unnecessarily huge camera island at the rear. It sports three sensors, and a lot of unused glass - maybe the other half can be used as a mirror?

A usually reliable tipster has shared the following image that's said to be of the iQOO 9 Pro, and the design is very similar except the Pro model has an exquisite dragon-like shape added in for good measure. The camera island text also confirms OIS for at least one of the sensors.

According to past rumors, leaks, and speculation, the iQOO 9 Pro should have a 50 MP main camera, and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC at the helm. Display-wise, we're likely looking at a 6.78-inch QHD+ curved AMOLED with 120 Hz refresh rate. The vanilla iQOO 9, on the other hand, is expected to settle for a same-size flat screen with "just" FHD+ resolution.

The iQOO 9 is said to have a 4,700 mAh battery, the Pro being close too, and both models should charge at up to 120W.

Yeah, started out as a one model gaming centric phone but now it's just like a regular brand. They have models at all price segments, budget, midrange, budget flagship and flagship. It's generally kind of like Vivo's budget brand as it...

I've always wondered that. IQOO had always targeted gamers but then Vivo seems to want to take it to complicatedly-designed flagship territory now. It would have been the only gaming phone with better-than-midranger cameras but...yeah.
