Vivo has just released the iQoo Neo 5S and iQoo Neo 5 SE in China but a new iQOO phone series is coming. The Chinese OEM has confirmed the iQOO 9 will be available soon. We now have an official launch date: January 5. The image here shows us one thing: there will be a large camera module. It seems the idea of the Pixel 6 camera island has resonated with other brands. It’s really not just for aesthetic but for a more advanced camera system.
There will be three cameras. It will remind you a bit of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra but sans a small secondary display. There is a red-black-blue racing stripe across the back.
The iQOO 9 could be powered by a 4700mAh battery. The Pro will have something a little higher in capacity with up 120W charging. The display of the regular version will be 6.78-inches with FHD+ resolution. The Pro will have the same display size but with QHD+ resolution, curved AMOLED screen, and a 120 Hz refresh rate.
The Vivo iQOO 9 series appears to be more gaming-centric instead of being focused on the cameras system. The large camera island could be a hint but the camera specs we’ve been hearing aren’t that impressive compared to other premium flagship phones.
