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.
