iQOO, just last month, introduced the iQOO 9 series as one of the first smartphones with the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. Now, the iQOO 9 lineup is soon expected to launch in India, and ahead of this, the company has now revealed its availability details.
iQOO 9 Series Coming to India Soon
The company has revealed that the iQOO 9 series, consisting of the iQOO 9, the iQOO 9 Pro, and the iQOO 9E, will be available to buy as an Amazon India exclusive, much like its other smartphones. The phone will also have a BMW Motorsport edition, much like the iQOO 7 Legend had.
Commenting on the partnership, iQOO CEO Nipun Marya said, “At iQOO, our continuous endeavor has been to introduce products that offer exceptional and unmatched performance to our users. The iQOO 9 series will be a powerful addition to our existing portfolio and the advanced flagship will be available very soon on consumer’s favorite platform, Amazon India.“
We still don’t know when the iQOO 9 phones will be launched in India. Although, it could be just around the corner and we might get more information on this soon.
As for the upcoming iQOO 9 series, it will succeed the iQOO 7 and the iQOO 7 Legend and will fall in the premium segment. The iQOO 9E, however, might be more of a mid-range phone. The lineup will be gaming-centric and come with features such as Dual X-Axis Linear Motor and Advanced Liquid Cooling System.
