iQOO 9T 5G price in India starts from Rs 49,999 for 6GB RAM + 128GB storage in India.


It comes with  50MP primary sensor with OIS Support, 13MP ultra-wide lens, and 12MP 2x telephoto lens while there is a 16MP selfie shooter on the front

If you want smooth videos then shoot videos at only 1080p, don’t use that 4k because the OIS doesn’t work the best with 4k. IQOO can work this out with software updates but will they, only time will tell.

When it comes to images, we have seen that IQOO usually boosts the colors a little bit because that’s what users like the most.

In short, if you’re that kind of person who loves natural colors then you will be disappointed with the IQOO 9T 5G.

Overall, for the price of Rs 49999, the cameras are not that great but they’re useable. I can even say that, for gaming smartphones, iQOO 9T 5G has the best cameras.


What I’m saying is, whether you want to play heavy games like COD Mobile, Apex Legend, or any other, the processor won’t heat up and give you any kind of problems.

Overall, this is the best smartphone you can buy for gaming under Rs 50000 in India.

The device has 9 5G Bands, Widevine L1 support, Camera2Api, NFC support, and even Carrier aggregation but there is not SD-card slot or even 3.5mm Audio jack present.


The IQOO 9T 5G runs on Fun Touch OS 12 based on Android 12. The IQOO has promised the 3 years of OS updates and 4 years of security updates.


The iQOO 9T 5G comes with dual speakers and they’re also good too. Again, you will be more than happy with its quality.


The iQOO 9T 5G comes with a 4,700 mAh battery with 120W wired fast charging support which will charge the device from 1% to 100% in 19 Minutes.


iQOO 9T 5G is a solid smartphone for gaming, the phone also has good cameras but it doesn’t justify the 50k price tag. Considering the gaming smartphone, iQOO 9T 5G has great cameras, it’s even better than the ROG Phone 5s.

So yes, if I wanted to buy a gaming smartphone for myself then I would buy the iQOO 9T 5G but the thing is, I will hesitate a bit to pay Rs 50000 for iQOO because of the Fun Touch OS.
