iQOO 9 Pro has an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner & LTPO 2.0 panel
The iQOO 9 series is set to launch on January 5th
The first couple of weeks of January are going to be pretty exciting for smartphone enthusiasts because a lot of much-awaited phones are launching in those two weeks. For example, the Realme GT 2 series, the iQOO 9 series, the OnePlus 10 series, etc. Speaking of the iQOO 9 series, we already know how the 9 & 9 Pro look like and also know that there is a Samsung GN5 sensor on the back. Now, iQOO has revealed even more details of the iQOO 9 Pro, the more expensive of the two phones under this series.
iQOO revealed that the 9 Pro has a Quad-HD+ (also called 2K) E5 AMOLED that is curved on sides, and this panel comes with the LTPO 2.0 tech as well. This same technology is there on the Xiaomi 12 Pro and the upcoming Realme GT 2 Pro. In fact, the OnePlus 10 series is also expected to have the same LTPO 2.0 tech. The refresh rate of the panel is 120Hz, and there is also a 1000Hz instantaneous touch-response rate. The peak brightness of the pane is 1,500 nits. Now, comparing the display specifications to that of the iQOO 8 Pro, there isn’t a huge difference apart from the fact that the iQOO 9 Pro has the 2nd generation LTPO panel. The resolution, peak brightness, and refresh rate are all the same.
Under the display, there is an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner, but again, that is something the iQOO 8 Pro also had.
iQOO 9 Pro supports 120W fast charging and has a 4,700mAh battery. So, while the charging speed remains the same, the battery is now 200mAh bigger than the iQOO 8 Pro. Also, there is a charging adapter with Gallium nitride or GaN material which results in a smaller size. Since the iQOO 8 Pro supported 50W fast wireless charging, we are expecting the same to be the case with the iQOO 9 pro.
And finally, as we know, the iQOO 9 series has the Samsung GN5 sensor on the rear, which outputs 50 Megapixel images. The iQOO 9 series is going to be the first to have this camera sensor.
So yeah, the iQOO 9 series, especially the 9 Pro, comes with high-end hardware, so it will be interesting to see at what price the phones are going to launch.
