iQOO touts its new 9T as the "most powerful smartphone" for the money on the Indian market
iQOO has now launched the 9T via Amazon India. Despite its iteratively updated name, the device is a rebrand of the 10 for the Chinese market, in fact, which means it gets nearly every top-end spec from its new series...except for the Pro model's new 200W flash-charging tech, curved display and upgraded, newly gimbal-enabled, rear cameras.
Nevertheless, this still means the 9T ships with shooters backed up by the V1+ co-processor that will also help its 8+ Gen 1 processor drive an E5 AMOLED display. It will also ship in iQOO's latest Legendary or Track colorways, although the latter has been re-named "Alpha" for the Indian market for some reason.
The Vivo speed-focused smartphone brand has, as hinted earlier, started the 1.1 million AnTuTu-scoring 9T at INR 54,999 (~US$700); however, it seems a combination of early-bird discounts and ICICI incentives can reduce this cost by as much as INR 9,000 (~US$115). The new flagship remix of an Android 12 smartphone will become available at these prices from August 4, 2022.
