iQOO 9 series launch is expected in February 2022 and we now know the iQOO 9 Pro specifications courtesy of Digital Chat Station.

Highlights
  • The iQOO 9 series is expected to come with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset.
  • iQOO 9 Pro is tipped to come with a 6.78-inch curved edge AMOLED display with a 2K resolution.
  • iQOO 9, on the other hand, may come with a flat FHD+ AMOLED display.

The iQOO 9 series is currently in development and recent leaks have revealed the battery capacity and charging capabilities of the forthcoming flagship smartphones. Due to a worldwide chip scarcity, iQOO cancelled its plans to introduce the iQOO 8 series in India. We also told you exclusively that the smartphone series will launch in February of next year. Yesterday, iQOO also launched the iQOO Neo5s and iQOO Neo5 SE smartphones in China. Now, Chinese tipster, Digital Chat Station has posted new information on Weibo,  which reveals more exclusive information about the upcoming smartphone series, especially its display.

The iQOO 9 series will also come with a Samsung E5 OLED display panel that supports QHD+ resolution up to 120Hz refresh rate. The tipster also added that the smartphone series will use high-quality two-dimensional screen resolution for enhanced image viewing.

Previous leaks have confirmed that the iQOO 9 series will get the same 4,700mAh battery, with support for 120W fast charging.
