When it comes to the multi-core department, the device has achieved an impressive result of 3,787 points. The listing reveals that the iQOO 9 Pro will pack 12 GB of RAM. We expect this variant to come alongside 256 GB of Internal Storage. Since the focus of iQOO is to impress with its specs, then we assume the device will sport cutting-edge LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 standards.
The first week of January is going to be a whirlwind! We’ll have all the excitement for CES 2022, as well as a slew of new flagships from Chinese firms. Realme will unveil its new flagship series, the Realme GT 2 and GT 2 Pro, on January 4th. The iQOO 9 and iQOO 9 Pro, two new flagships from iQOO, will be unveiled on January 5. For quite some time, these two devices have been circulating in the rumour mill. We’re learning more about the iQOO 9 Pro today. The high-end model will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC and will come pre-installed with Android 12.
It’s interesting to see the device running Android 12 in this test. When iQOO launched the iQOO Neo 5 and the Neo 5 SE, we got surprised by the fact that devices came with an Android 11-based version of OriginOS Ocean. The Ocean is the latest iteration of OriginOS, but the new devices still came with the old Android version. Thankfully, that won’t be the case with the new iQOO 9 and 9 Pro. Both smartphones will carry the latest OriginOS Ocean and also the latest Android version. iQOO 9 and iQOO 9 Pro: announcement date and design revealed.
Geekbench listing further confirms the presence of the processor with codename taro and a 1 + 3 +4 core configuration. The listing confirms the Adreno 730G which is exclusive to the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. This chipset is based on the 4 nm architecture, and has 1 x ARM Cortex-X2 core clocked at up to 3 GHz, 3 x ARM Cortex-A710 clocked at up to 2.5 GHz, 4 x ARM Cortex-A510 cores at up to 1.8 GHz. The smartphone also passed through the Chinese 3C certification website. It shows that it will pack 120 W fast-charging support. Moreover, the device is set to come with a 4,700 mAh battery which should offer a good backup.
