iQOO has launched its 9T today (August 2, 2022). However, there are still a few days before it actually starts selling via its new dedicated Amazon.in page. The buyer will get a Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 SoC in an updated, racing-inspired chassis with a 6.78-inch 120Hz FHD+ E5 AMOLED display, up to 12GB of RAM, a 50MP ISOCELL GN1 main camera and 120W charging in this refreshed flagship package.

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.
