The iQoo 9 series, which supposedly includes the vanilla smartphones iQoo 9 and iQoo 9 Pro, is powered by Qualcomm’s newest flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. The sub-brand Vivo also confirmed that the smartphones will feature a three-dimensional VC heat dissipation system that has a 3,926 square millimeter soaking plate. The news comes a few hours after iQoo announced that the iQoo 9-series will debut in China on January 5, and at least one phone in the lineup includes a 4,700mAh battery with a 120W fast charge capability.
In a post on Chinese microblogging site Weibo, iQoo shared two pictures that confirmed the phones – likely the iQoo 9 and iQoo 9 Pro – are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. The chipset is paired with an “extended version” of LPDDR5 RAM and an “overclocked version” of UFS 3.1 memory (translated). It is also said that the handsets also incorporate a three-dimensional VC heat dissipation system to keep their temperature under control.
In a teaser a few hours ago iQoo revealed the battery specifications of the series. Without naming a specific handset, the Chinese brand said the smartphone includes a 4,700 mAh battery with 120W fast charging technology and 50W support for wireless charging. If we approach the trend of specifications in the iQoo 8 series, the iQoo 8 Pro has a larger battery with 120 W fast charging as well as 50 W wireless fast charging. It could be that the battery specs belong to the rumored iQoo 9 Pro.
Meanwhile, it has also been confirmed that the iQoo 9 series will be launched in China on January 5th. The phones will feature Samsung’s second generation 2K E5 AMOLED screen and feature a triple rearview camera system.
