We can also see Vivo’s ‘V1+” text on it, confirming it to have the company’s in-house imaging chip. For the unversed, the V1+ is the company’s NPU (Neural Processing Unit) for boosting camera performance. While the camera specs are unknown, the image reveals 20x zoom support.
Apart from the design and cameras, the Amazon microsite confirms some of the highlights of the phone, although no figures as such. The iQOO 9T is claimed to come with a powerful chipset, good cameras, and improved charging.
Previous leaks have revealed that iQOO 9T will be the company’s next powerful handset that may succeed the iQOO 9 Pro. It is rumored to come with a 6.78-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. We can also expect a high touch sampling rate.
Under the hood, it is expected to come powered by the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. It is an octa-core SoC based on TSMC’s 4nm node. It will likely be paired with two RAM and storage options — 8GB/128GB and 12GB/256GB.
On the camera front, it could feature a 50MP triple camera system with Optical Image Stabilization support. It will boot on Android 12 OS out of the box and have 120W fast charging technology.
