Here comes the question, is the processor everything? No, there are many other features in the phone that the enthusiasts of gaming phones will love this phone very much.

As for the operating system, it comes with Snapdragon 888 5G. The RAM that has been enhanced inside it is LPDDR5 and UFS 3.1 storage. Coming to the battery, it packs a 4500mAh battery with 66W charging capability and a 6.62 FHD+ 120Hz display. But it is an 8bit panel, Well it’s a great phone for gamers.

It has a 300Hz touch response and 1000Hz instant touch feature. This phone has an in-display fingerprint scanner with optical and it has also an intelligent display chip.

The function of the intelligent display chip is to do frame interpolation so that the game can go from 60 FPS to 120 FPS while playing. And that’s, what makes iQOO phones special.

And this phone gets the linear motor stereo speakers of the Z-axis and if we look at the camera, then there is a 48MP imx598 image sensor with OIS in it. Yes, there is a camera with OIS, and a 13MP ultra-wide-angle lens with autofocus, through which you can shoot microphotography. And this phone has 2MP depth sensors.

If you are interested in 5G then iQOO 9 SE has 8, 5G bands which makes this phone quite good. If one wants a gaming device under Rs. 35000 then it can get the maximum OS up to Snapdragon 870 but in this phone, Snapdragon 888 makes it even more special. And getting Android version 12 with it is a big deal in my opinion. And Android 13 and Android 14 updates will be available, says iQOO.
