Amazon released teasers (opens in new tab) for IQOO’s next phone, iQOO 9T. Amazon didn’t mention anything about the phone’s release date.
From the teasers, the phone is likely a rebranded iQOO 10 soon to be released in China.
The iQOO 10 series will be released on July 19 in China. Therefore, we can expect the iQOO 9T to launch in India after the launch in China.
The brand also posted the same teaser on Twitter, take a look:

Also, a Youtuber posted a video about the phone revealing most things about the phone yesterday. The video has now been deleted, but the footage has revealed many features of the phone. Let’s talk about everything we know now about the phone.
The iQOO 9T will come with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. It is the second phone to come with the chipset in India, with the Asus Rog Phone 6 being the first. But Asus has not yet announced the date of sale of the phone.
The iQOO 9T comes with a 120Hz AMOLED display. And it comes with a triple 50MP camera setup. The primary sensor is a Samsung ISOCELL GN5 sensor. We can also see a periscope camera on the back of the phone in the teasers.
It comes with the V1+ chipset, a dedicated image processing chipset. This is the same chip we saw with the Vivo X80 series. The V1+ chipset is also engraved on the back of the phone.
The phone is rumored to come with support for 120W fast charging, the same as we saw on the iQOO 10 Pro.
Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 phones are here
Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 phones are finally here in India. And the iQOO 9T will likely be the first to be sold here, although Asus announced its Rog Phone 6 last week.
The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 brings considerable improvements in heat management and efficiency compared to the previous Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. The reason for the improvement is Qualcomm’s shift from Samsung’s manufacturing process to TSMC.
Let’s hope more Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 phones come to the Indian market.
