Sagar, 31 December 2021

vivo sub-brand iQOO took to Weibo today to announce that the iQOO 9 series arriving on January 5 will feature a primary camera with Samsung's 50MP ISOCELL GN5 sensor, while the secondary camera will sit behind a 150° ultrawide-angle lens.

iQOO says the iQOO 9 series will be the world's first to feature the 50MP GN5 sensor, and the poster it shared reveals the presence of a 7P lens and Gimbal Stabilization. However, only the Pro model will sport a 150° ultrawide-angle camera.

Previously, iQOO announced that the iQOO 9 series would ship with a 4,700 mAh battery but didn't clarify whether both the vanilla and Pro models will pack cells of this size or only the iQOO 9 Pro will be fueled by the 4,700 mAh battery.

iQOO hasn't detailed the specs sheets of the iQOO 9 and iQOO 9 Pro yet. However, the company has already confirmed the lineup will come with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, 50W wireless charging, three-dimensional VC heat dissipation system, and 2K 120Hz E5 AMOLED display of LTPO 2.0 type having 517 ppi pixel density, 1,500 nits peaks brightness and 1,000Hz touch sampling rate.

With the launch event still five days away, we expect iQOO to reveal a few more features of the iQOO 9 series to build hype around it.

This phone has Gimbal stabilization and 7p lens. You can't simply compare GN5 to IMX766 straight up. We have to compare the overall finished quality of the photo side by side, with phones of the same price range.
