iQOO 9T has Cleared BIS Certification and is Expected to Launch Next Month

The iQOO 9T is tipped to become the first smartphone that features the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 SoC in India, ahead of OnePlus 10T.


BBK Electronics’ youngest brand, iQOO, has offered a number of consistent launches in the recent past. Going forward, it is now expected to introduce a new flagship grade smartphone that could become the very first to use Snapdragon’s top tier chip in India. According to a report by 91mobiles, the iQOO 9T is now poised to launch in India soon – and the brand is gearing up to introduce the smartphone in India next month.

The iQOO 9T has also reportedly cleared certification by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), which is a certifying authority that clears various categories of products before brands could offer them to consumers.

iQOO 9T: What We Expect to See

The iQOO 9T is seemingly set to become the very first smartphone that features the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 SoC by Qualcomm, which is the mid-cycle upgrade and the topmost tier of flagship smartphone chips offered by the company. Reports claim that the OnePlus 10T, the company’s flagship smartphone, could also be launching at around the same time with the same chipset, but the exact launch dates of the two remain unclear as f now.

In terms of other specifications, as reported by 91mobiles, the iQOO 9T could feature a 6.78-inch AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate, but the display resolution is not specified. While a full HD screen resolution is the minimum certainty, it would be interesting to see if iQOO offers 2K (or quad HD) screen resolution on the upcoming smartphone. Elsewhere, the device is expected to feature up to 12GB RAM and 256GB storage. Given that its recently unveiled Neo 6 smartphone offers the same amount of RAM and storage, this is the least that could be expected from the flagship grade smartphone.

The iQOO 9T is also tipped to feature a triple rear camera setup, as well as 120W fast charging. While the device has cleared BIS certification, no specifications are mentioned in its certification. As a result, more details should surface in the coming weeks, when the device is likely to become official.
