“The iQOO brand is focused on providing technology that enables users to ‘search again and again’. Our goal is to bring the joy of exploration to tech-savvy digital natives and the next generation of challengers who will cross borders to discover and capture the unknown,” said Allan FengGlobal SVP at iQOO, “With the next generation of iQOO 9T, we continue our pursuit of cutting-edge performance, innovation and industry-leading design.”
The new iQOO 9T enables powerful performance with breakthrough technology innovations including the Snapdragon® 8+ Gen 1 mobile platform and best specs, fast charging, advanced cooling technology and more.
- As one of the first phones for the India market with the Snapdragon® 8+ Gen 1 mobile platform, the iQOO 9T scores an astonishing 1115589 in the iQOO lab test. The Snapdragon® 8+ Gen 1 mobile platform’s Kryo processor adopts a tri-cluster architecture with an astonishingly large Cortex-X2 core running at a clock speed of up to 3.2 GHz, which extends the premium on-device experiences from gaming and streaming to photography and web browsing. The chip’s function stability has also been improved with the advanced 4nm process technology.
- With software tuning and algorithm optimization, the combination of Snapdragon® 8+ Gen 1 mobile platform, enhanced LPDDR5 and enhanced UFS3.1 can further reduce power consumption, especially in low load scenarios, and improve performance.
- iQOO 9T can be 100% charged in 20 minutes with its 120W FlashCharge technology, combining the first 6C battery cell of the iQOO 7 with a matrix electrode structure and two half-voltage charging chips.
- iQOO 9T features an industry-leading vapor chamber liquid cooling system with vapor chamber size reaching 3930mm2. The all-new cooling system provides more efficient heat conduction and smarter temperature control through an optimized bezel heat-up design and the use of high-power graphite.
- The expansive 6.78-inch E5 AMOLED display gives users a visual feast, delivering color accuracy with lifelike, natural transitions between light and dark while remaining efficient with a high 120Hz refresh rate.
POuchOutstanding gaming performance
iQOO 9T is designed from the ground up for the ultimate immersive gaming experience, ensuring an unparalleled high frame rate display, superior in-game control and enhanced sound.
- Supported by the V1+ chip, the main chip can perform noise reduction and frame interpolation while reducing GPU workload. Game frame interpolation pushes iQOO 9T beyond the traditional maximum frame rate, enabling smooth 90-frame display on games such as Genshin Impact, PUBG New State, and BGMI.
- The fully sensory game control system includes the Monster Touch dual touchscreen, dual X-axis linear motor and dual stereo speaker.
- The Dual Monster Touch In-Display responds to pressure on the left and right parts respectively, while Dual Mapping can respond to both adding and releasing finger pressure. This allows for faster and more convenient control options for gamers, as they can now play with four fingers.
- Two X-axis linear motors are present on the left and right sides of the device to achieve dynamic 4D vibrations. This vibration can simulate actions in many gaming or entertainment scenarios to make the experience even more realistic.
- The two vertically placed speakers bring a louder and more balanced stereo effect. The system helps players identify the location with stereo sound effects and provides the auditory effect of fuller bass, high fidelity, high volume and wide sound field. The system intelligently adapts to specific scenes to enable personalized adjustments for entertainment and gaming.
- The audio quality algorithm of iQOO 9T has been upgraded with technologies such as sound field expansion, optimizing the quality of external sound.
Discovery in photography
- The flagship update also includes an ultra-sensing photography system that includes a 50MP GN5 ultra-sensing main camera, an ultra-wide-angle camera, and an IMX663 professional portrait camera.
- The main camera features an ISOCELL GN5 sensor which includes a resolution of 50 MP and a size of 1/1.57 inch. The pixel size is 1.0μm and reaches 2.0μm after adopting the 4-in-1 pixel process. This next-generation sensor with high light sensitivity and high focusing speed enables the camera to accurately and quickly capture a moving subject or a subject in a dark environment and achieve better color fidelity even for small pixel sizes.
- The V1+ chip improves image processing efficiency and power consumption exponentially. With the help of the V1+ chip, the main chip can perform noise reduction and frame interpolation for night scenes that require high computing power. Extreme real-time night vision can provide photo preview effects comparable to human eyes at night. And Super Night Video is realized by the combination of Super Night Video denoising algorithm powered by V1+ chip and high-speed memory management system of V1+ chip, which can run at high speed with low power consumption. .
- The newly added IMX663 12MP professional portrait camera supports 2x optical zoom and leads to scene performance.
- Additional imaging features include Pure Night View, XDR Photo, Effects Master and Vlog Movie.
Designed with the aesthetics of speed and order in mind, iQOO 9T will be available in two color options: the Alpha Edition (black) and the Legend Edition (white with a tricolor stripe design).
Operating system and security
- iQOO 9T offers enhanced security and privacy options, including the newly added ability to hide images and videos to protect user privacy.
- iQOO 9T is equipped with an infrared remote control, which can serve as a remote control alternative for more than 1,600 brands of home appliances.
