Announcement. Vivo iQOO 9 and Vivo iQOO 9 Pro - gaming top smartphones with solid cameras

The fifth and sixth flagship smartphonesQualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. Meet Vivo iQOO 9 and Vivo iQOO 9 Pro. Well, more precisely, the Chinese meet. Smartphones were announced exactly there, in the Celestial Empire. There are no questions about performance - we are waiting in the region of a million points in AnTuTu. The most powerful hardware, the fastest memory, plus an advanced cooling system. The most serious devices, which is already there.

There is a lot of memory. 8 or 12 GB of RAM, 256 or 512 GB of storage. Of course, there is no memory card support.

The screens have the same dimensions - 6.78 ″ and the same maximum refresh rate - 120 Hz. Both AMOLED E5s, but different AMOLEDs. The iQOO 9 has a flat screen, not LTPO and with a traditional FHD + resolution, i.e. 1080 × 2400 (388 ppi). The pro-smartphone has an LTPO screen (i.e. with dynamic adjustment of the refresh rate and better power consumption), is thoroughly rounded (why ?!) and has a completely indecent resolution of 1440 × 3200 (518 ppi).

The batteries have the same capacity of 4700 mAh.Fast charges are fast to the point of disgrace - 120 watts. They promise a full charge from zero to one hundred percent in just 19 minutes. The iQOO 9 Pro also has wireless charging. Also obscenely fast - 50 watts.

The front cameras appear to be the same. The resolution is 16 MP.

A set of rear cameras (three pieces) for Vivo iQOO 9 Promore interesting. The main module - 50 MP - is Samsung GN5 with optical stabilization. Plus a wide-angle camera (also 50 MP, can also shoot macro). The third camera is a 2.5X telephoto. What is very nice, the telephoto is also equipped with optical stabilization.

The Vivo iQOO 9 has the same main camera. But shirik and telephoto is simpler, 13 + 12 MP and without any optical stabilization there.

There is NFC and the sixth Wi-Fi, there are stereo speakers.Finger scanners are built into the screen. A lot of LTE bands are supported, including all that we need in Russia. What is missing is standard audio output.

Vivo iQOO 9 is available in three colors. Black, orange and white (with stripes "from BMW"). Vivo iQOO 9 Pro has one fewer colors, there is no black one.
