iQOO, today announced the launch of a new colour of iQOO 9 in Phoenix (Orange) variant. iQOO says that this new variant comes with colour changing technology. Apart from that, it is the same iQOO 9 that was launched in India back in February of this year. The device comes with Snapdragon 888+ under the hood along with 120W fast charging.
Priced at Rs 42,990 (8GB+128GB) and Rs 46,990 (12GB+256GB), iQOO 9’s new color variant will be available for purchase on Amazon.in and iQOO e-store starting today. The device is also available in Alpha and Legend colour variants.
The new vibrant color of iQOO 9 is produced by a geometric craft on Frosty AG Glass.
