vivo sub-brand iQOO yesterday announced it will introduce the iQOO 9 series on January 5 while also revealing the smartphone’s design and a few specs. Today, the company took to Weibo to tell us more about the battery tech.
iQOO says the iQOO 9 series will pack a 4,700 mAh battery and feature 120W wired and 50W wireless charging. However, only the Pro version will support wireless charging, which isn’t a surprise since the iQOO 8 Pro also came with 50W wireless charging but the regular iQOO 8 didn’t.
iQOO also doesn’t explicitly mention which variant will ship with a 4,700 mAh battery, but it’s safe to say it will be the iQOO 9 Pro which will be fueled by this cell, while the vanilla iQOO 9 will have a smaller battery.
The poster shared by iQOO also confirms the presence of a USB-C port at the bottom, with the SIM card slot and microphone on the left side. The opposite side is less likely to have a 3.5mm headphone jack since the previous two generations also didn’t feature a headphone jack.
In a separate post, iQOO said that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC on the iQOO 9 series will be paired with an “enhanced version” of LPDDR5 and an “overclocking version” of UFS 3.1 storage. But it didn’t provide us any numbers for either.
Moreover, the company said that the iQOO 9 lineup will have a VC three-dimensional heat dissipation heat system onboard with an area of 3926 mm2.
Previously, iQOO confirmed that the iQOO 9 series will feature a 2K E5 AMOLED screen and sport a triple camera system headlined by a 50MP sensor with OIS.
You can expect iQOO to reveal a few more features of the iQOO 9 series in the days leading to its January 5 launch event.
