This is further clubbed with peak brightness of 1500 nits that allows clear view of the picture even under the strong outdoor light.
The 3,930mm² Full Coverage VC Liquid Cooling System enables better efficient heat conduction of the smartphone and brings a better temperature experience with optimized bezel temperature rise design and high-power graphite structure. iQOO 9T has further improved heat dissipation performance per unit volume and realizes the thinnest vapor chamber in the industry, while also reducing the device body by 0.15mm.
The V1+ Chip
The V1+ Imaging Chip inside the iQOO 9T improves image processing efficiency and power consumption in the smartphone leading to uninterrupted performance. The V1+ Chip can be coupled with different main chips to expand the computing capacity of ISP and GPU and relieve the workload of the main chip. It allows certain gaming advantages like the gaming latency is reduced after the frame interpolation feature is enabled, making the touch control more responsive to finger movements.
Targeting the gamers, iQOO 9T comes with Full-Sensory Gaming Control, which includes In-Display Dual Monster Touch, Dual X-Axis Linear Motor and Dual Stereo Speakers. The In-Display Dual Monster Touch enables faster and more ergonomic gaming, allowing two fingers to accomplish what four fingers previously could in games such as COD, etc. The Dual X-axis Linear Motors that is present on the left and right sides of the device to achieve dynamic 4D vibration. This vibration can simulate actions across many gaming or entertainment scenarios to make the experience even more realistic in complex scenarios.
The Dual Stereo Speakers provide surround sound with Hi-Res audio certification. It brings a stronger, more balanced stereo sound effect by which users can easily identify location in gaming scenarios. In addition to having fuller bass, high fidelity, loudness, and wide sound field, the speakers provide 3D sound effects for better experience.

The main camera features an ISOCELL GN5 sensor that embraces a resolution of 50MP and a size of 1/1.57 inch. The pixel size is 1.0μm and reaches 2.0μm after adopting the 4-in-1 process of pixels. This new-gen sensor with high light sensitivity and high focus speed allows the camera to capture a moving subject or a subject accurately and quickly in a dark environment and achieve higher color fidelity even for small-sized pixels, providing HD image quality in all lightning conditions. The newly added 12MP IMX663 professional portrait camera supports 2x optical zoom and leads in scene performance. Additional imaging features include Pure Night View, XDR Photo, Effects Master and Vlog Movie.
The V1+ Chip inside the iQOO 9T improves image processing efficiency and power consumption. With the help of the V1+ Chip, the main chip can perform noise reduction and frame interpolation for night scenes that demand high computing power. Real-time Extreme Night Vision can deliver photo preview effects comparable to human eyes at night. And Super Night Video is realized by the combination of the Super Night Video denoising algorithm powered by the V1+ Chip and V1+ Chip’s high-speed memory management system, which can run at a high speed with low power consumption.
