The iQOO 9 Pro flagship from Vivo’s sub-brand is now available for $870

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, up to 12GB of RAM, and a 4,700mAh battery power the iQOO 9 Pro. The screen is a 6.78-inch 1440p 120Hz OLED display, and the camera system features a 50-megapixel ultrawide, a 16-megapixel portrait camera, and a 50-megapixel primary sensor that, like recent Vivo flagships, incorporates gimbal-style stabilisation. It can be charged via cable at 120W or wirelessly at up to 50W, which is unique for a Vivo-adjacent phone.

Differences in the non-Pro iQOO 9 include a Snapdragon 888 Plus processor, a 4,350mAh battery, and a 6.56-inch 1080p 120Hz OLED screen. The smaller camera bump houses a 48-megapixel main camera, a 13-megapixel ultrawide, and a 13-megapixel portrait camera. The phone still has 120W wired charging, but there’s no wireless option. Both the iQOO 9 and 9 Pro run Vivo’s Funtouch OS 12, based on Android 12.
