Introduction of iQOO 9 and iQOO 9 Pro – Vivo flagships with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and BMW M version

News unit iQOO Subset of Vivo on Wednesday, January 5, 2021 (15 January 1400) from two flagship phones iQOO 9 and iQOO 9 Pro has unveiled both of the flagship chipset Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 cores and a new sensor ISOCELL GN5 Samsung Neg also plays the role of the main camera in them. These two phones have many similarities to each other, but naturally, the Pro version is in a higher position and things like LTPO display technology, automatic focus of the ultrawide camera, ultrasonic fingerprint sensor and wireless battery charging can only be seen in this model. Both iQOO 9 and iQOO 9 Pro models also benefit from a special edition called BMW M Motorsport, which distinguishes it with white color and three color stripes.

Considering the many similarities between iQOO 9 and iQOO 9 Pro, It is possible to point out the differences between these two models while introducing them at the same time.

Design and appearance

iQOO 9 and iQOO 9 Pro In the design, they have inherited similarities from their previous generation, but this similarity does not go beyond the coloring, the carbon fiber appearance of the back part, and the central punchy selfie camera, and at a glance, you can recognize the iQOO 9 family, especially from the large and wide area of ​​the camera lenses in the part He recognized the back which occupies almost the entire upper third of this part. Both of these phones are also available in BMW M Motorsport White, except for the gray and orange colors, and they are not different from each other in this respect. The back part of the phone is apparently made of glass and the surrounding frame seems to be metallic, as we expect from a flagship.

Due to the same screen size in these two models, we expect similar dimensions in them, but The curved screen in the Pro version and its flatness in the iQOO 9 makes the situation different, especially in terms of width. The length and width of iQOO 9 are 164.5 and 76.7 mm, respectively, but in iQOO 9 Pro, as we expected, despite the same height of 164.8 mm, the width of the phone has decreased to 75.2 mm.

The new generation of iQOO flagships, like their previous models, are still heavy phones and both weigh over 200 grams. The manufacturing company announced the weight of the normal version of this family in all its colors, 206.1 grams, but the iQOO 9 Pro weighs nearly 204 grams in the BMW color combination and around 210 grams in the other two colors.


Both phones iQOO 9 and iQOO 9 Pro They use a 6.78-inch AMOLED E5 screen made by Samsung, which has a contrast ratio of 8,000,000:1, and their maximum point brightness is 1500 nits. These are the only similarities between these two panels and almost all their other specifications are different. The first difference should be found in the flatness of the screen in the standard version and its curvedness in the Pro version, which was repeated in the same way in the previous generation of this family. Another point is related to the resolution of these two panels, which in the normal model is Full HD Plus or 1080×2400 pixels, and the Pro model is equipped with a higher resolution of 2K or 1440×3200 pixels. The maximum number of colors supported in these two screens is also different and while iQOO 9 is a normal panel with support for 16 million colors, in iQOO 9 Pro we have a 10-bit panel with support for displaying more than 1 billion colors. /p>

iQOO 9 Pro is also a completely superior example in terms of refresh rate and while both have 120 Hz update speed, but the Pro model equipped with LTPO technology can change from 1 to 120 Hz and can Battery consumption can save a lot. This feature has no place in normal iQOO 9. The maximum touch speed in the Pro version is 300 Hz, and the manufacturer has also mentioned what it calls Instant touch speed at a rate of 1,000 Hz for this panel.

Fingerprint sensor inside Screen

In both phones introduced this time, the fingerprint sensor inside the screen is used, but the type of these sensors is different and Vivo has given the upper hand to the Pro version here. iQOO 9’s fingerprint sensor is apparently of the normal optical type, which is used in all other mid-range phones and most flagships of the same category. In iQOO 9 Pro, however, a three-dimensional ultrasonic fingerprint sensor is used, which has a much higher speed of 0.2 seconds and does not have a problem working with a wet finger. The detection area of ​​this sensor is also much wider and larger than a normal optical sensor.

Main and Selfie Cameras

The selfie camera above the screen on both phones is a regular 16-megapixel f/ 2.45 and without autofocus, which is also used for face detection. On the back of the device, the same main camera is used for both phones, a 50-megapixel model with ISOCELL GN5 of Samsung with dimensions of 1/1.57 inches and 1 micron cells. After combining four pixels in one pixel, they achieve dimensions of 2 microns with a resolution of 12 megapixels. This camera has f/1.75 lens aperture and OIS or optical image stabilization. The maximum resolution of video recording in this camera is different, despite the fact that all its specifications are the same in both phones, and it is 4K in iQOO 9 and 8K in the Pro version.

From now on with We face different conditions in the two phones, which goes without saying that the bottom of the scale will be completely in favor of the Pro version. The second camera iQOO 9 is a 13-megapixel ultrawide model (apparently of Sony IMX 663) is non-autofocus and f/2.2, offering a 120° field of view (108° edge-corrected). The third camera of this collection is a 12-megapixel telephoto with f/1.98, which is called a portrait camera, and its 47 mm focal length provides an image equivalent to 2 times optical zoom. This camera also lacks autofocus or OIS.

in iQOO 9 Pro also has two other cameras i.e. an ultrawide camera and a telephoto portrait camera, but the conditions of these cameras are completely different and they show the flagship of this model well. The Pro version’s ultrawide camera is another 50-megapixel f/2.27, with a front fisheye lens that can capture a very wide field of view of 150 degrees (120 degrees with distortion correction). This very wide field of view puts the iQOO 9 Pro next to the Realme GT 2 Pro, which was introduced a few days ago with a similar feature. This camera is equipped with automatic focus and can be used to take photos from a very close distance (macro). Finally, the third and last camera in this collection is a 16-megapixel telephoto model with f/2.23, which is equipped with OIS and autofocus, and its 60 mm focal length lens provides an image equivalent to 2.5 times optical zoom.

Processor and memory

Both new flagship phones Vivo from the processor 4 nm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 cores from Qualcomm and are added to the list of few phones equipped with this platform. In the structure of this chipset from a 3 GHz core Cortex-X2, 2.5GHz tri-core Cortex-A710 and 1.8 GHz quad-core

Battery and charger

The battery capacity of both phones is 4,000 And it is 700 mAh, which consists of two separate 2,350mAh units. Although this capacity seems relatively low for a model with a huge 6.78-inch screen at first glance, the existence of a very low-power 4 nm processor and LTPO technology in the Pro version probably does not leave much room for concern about the durability of this battery. After all, both phones in this category come with a super fast 120W charger that only takes 19 minutes to charge the battery. This charger, which is provided in the box of the modern and advanced type of gallium nitride (called GaN) weighing only 135 grams. In addition to this charger, these two phones also support USB PD 3.0 and PPS fast charging protocols.

Although the iQOO 9 charging story ends here, the Pro version goes beyond this and in addition On top of wired fast charging, it also supports 50W wireless charging and 10W reverse wireless charging (to charge other devices by placing them on the back of the device). Note that the wireless charger of this model must be purchased separately.

Communication options

In addition to 5G, both of these phones support Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2 and NFC. And for routing, they also depend on the connection with GPS/GLONASS/Galileo/QZSS satellites. There is no news about the headset jack in this collection, but apparently both are equipped with stereo speakers. iQOO 9 and iQOO 9 Pro with operating system Android 12 and the OriginOS Ocean user interface have been presented to the Chinese market since January 12 (22 December 1400) and it is still unknown about the possibility of the presence and price of the device in other markets. , there is no news.
