The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset-powered iQOO 9 series recently went official in China. The company didn’t reveal its global or Indian availability at the Chinese launch event, which was confirmed yesterday at the BGMI gaming event. The iQOO 9 series poster is available also live on the iQOO’s India official website, giving a close look at the device, which surprised us and should surprise you as well.
The poster highlights Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip and a whopping 120W fast charging support. It highlights two phones – the one on the right side is the iQOO 9 Pro and the second one (on the left) is the iQOO 8 series phone. The rear design resembles the iQOO 8. So, most likely the phone on the left side is the iQOO 8.
To recall, iQOO 8 and 8 Pro were launched in China last year but didn’t make their way to India. So, the company is looking to bring a mixture from the iQOO 8 and iQOO 9 series in India. The company is unlikely to bring the vanilla iQOO 9 (Chinese version) in India.
