    iQOO 9T is coming to India sooner than you assumed! The fourth addition to the iQOO 9 series will debut in India on August 2 and iQOO has already revealed how the phone will look. SPILER ALERT! This is going to be a major design overhaul for the iQOO 9 series. iQOO has also revealed some the of specialities you will get with this phone, and it has all to do about the chipsets.

    The iQOO 9T seems like a localised variant of the iQOO 10 that will launch soon in China. The phone will come in the iconic BMW M coloured variant having the racing stripes. There is also another black colour variant that seems to have a matte finish. At the moment, it is unknown whether this rear panel will be made of glass or plastic. However, the dual-tone finish is a new addition on a iQOO branded smartphone.

    iQOO 9T launching in India soon

    iQOO has already confirmed that the iQOO 9T will be coming with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip, which promises far better thermal performance and power efficiency than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. Hence, issues such as heating and battery drain should be addressed on this chip. There is a minor boost to the performance as well.

    iQOO will also use a dedicated imaging chip from Vivo, called the V1+. This chip is said to provide MEMC functionality to the phone as well as help with SDR to HDR conversion. Additionally, it will also help with night time photography, says iQOO.

    Rumoured specs suggest that the iQOO 9T will come with the fastest 120W wired charging solution that will fill up a 4700mAh battery. The phone will have a triple camera system that will consist of a 50MP main, a 13MP ultra-wide, and a 12MP third camera. The phone could also have a 6.7-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz and flat sides.

    What remains to be seen is how much will this iQOO 9T cost in India. Rumours hint at a price bracket of Rs. 50,000 but considering this is the more powerful Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip, we could see a higher price tag.
