iQOO 9T Short Review: Performs like no other but spoilt by ONE issue
1/6 The iQOO 9T uses the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip and that results is fast performance that is sustained for longer periods. The phone runs cool for longer periods as well. You get LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage. (Amritanshu / HT Tech)

2/6 iQOO 9T offers a 6.7-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz and HDR10+ support. This is a good display by all means but it lacks the variable refresh rate and support for Dolby Vision.  (Amritanshu / HT Tech)
3/6 The iQOO 9T gets IP52 rating for water and dust resistance. You get a dual-tone glass back finish with curved edges. The display is flat. It is heavy but comfortable to hold nonetheless. (Amritanshu / HT Tech)

4/6 iQOO 9T gets a 50MP + 13MP + 12MP triple camera setup. This is a capable camera setup under all lighting conditions, giving bright and saturated photos. However, it overdoes the enhancements and many photographers won't like that. The selfie camera is an average performer too, it struggles to deal with light. (Amritanshu / HT Tech)

5/6 iQOO 9T gets a 4700mAh battery that makes the phone easily last an entire day and then have some. You get iQOO's 120W charging solution that takes just over 20 minutes to do a 0-100 percent charge. No wireless charging here. (Amritanshu / HT Tech)

6/6 iQOO 9T still uses Vivo's rough-around-the-edges FunTouch OS 12 based on Android 12. It's clunky, riddled with adware, and lacks the sophistication you expect from a flagship Android phone.  (Amritanshu / HT Tech)

With the iPhone 14 now out, Android fans are now eager to see what the performance oriented phone makers will do with their 2022 flagships. iQOO is usually the first one to launch its flagships and come 2023, we will likely see the iQOO 11 with some ravishing specs. Yes, thanks to a new leak, we now know what the iQOO 11 could be packing. Based on the last few launches, this could be the iQOO 11 Pro while the standard iQOO 11 could aim to keep the prices low.

Thanks to Digital Chat Station, who has an upper hand on Chinese phone leaks, it is said that iQOO 11 will have two crucial upgrades in key areas. One of them is obviously the chipset, which is said to be the yet-to-be-announced Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. This chip is expected to be based on the 4nm process and could offer more performance as well as superior power efficiency.

iQOO 11 to be a POWERHOUSE?

That's not all! The tipster goes on to say that the iQOO 11 will use Samsung's new E6 AMOLED display. The E6 material is said to offer the high brightness levels as the E5 material all while using much lesser power. This should help with preserving battery life, which is a key aspect in these Snapdragon 8 Gen series flagship phones.

Sadly, that's all we know about the iQOO 11. Over the last few years, we have seen the iQOO flagships share their camera hardware with the Vivo flagships, and the iQOO 11 could do the same. Then there's the fast charging solution, which iQOO could limit to 120W wired. iQOO's 120W charging on the iQOO 9 Pro and iQOO 9T fill up the battery from dead to 100 percent in just over 20 minutes.

While the iQOo 11 is still a few months away, iQOO has been bombing the Indian market lately with more affordable Android phones under the Z series. The iQOO Z6 series of phones end up being the fastest phones in their price category, despite being clones of Vivo phones. The iQOO 9T was a different one though, giving us the first taste of the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip.
