Vivo has launched its newest member of the iQOO Z series in India with the moniker iQOO Z9 5G – the successor to last year’s Z8 (china exclusive). In this article, let’s take a look at the iQOO device and its offerings, including the design, performance specifications, availability details, and iQOO Z9 5G price in Nepal.

iQOO Z9 5G Overview


One of the major highlights of the iQOO Z9 5G is its MediaTek Dimensity 7200 chipset. The processor comes with eight cores with 4nm fabrication and a peak clock speed of 2.8 GHz. In the meantime, iQOO claims that this phone is the “Fastest Phone in the Segment” by flaunting an AnTuTu v10 score of 734,000.

As for the memory, the iQOO Z9 5G packs 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM with 128GB or 256GB of UFS 2.2 storage (expandable via SD card). Moreover, the smartphone ships with Android 14-based Funtouch OS 14.

Design and Display

The iQOO Z9 5G comes in a flat design language with a slight curve on the edges. The squircle camera island features two camera cutouts vertically lined up on top of each other. Meanwhile, you get an LED flash placed right beside the cameras. The iQOO phone ships in ‘Brushed Green’ and ‘Graphene Blue’ colour options with feather-ish patterns on the former.

Moving on to the display side of things, you are greeted with a sizable 6.67-inch Full HD+ AMOLED screen with a 90Hz refresh rate, HDR 10+ certification, and DT Star2 glass protection. Furthermore, the bezels look relatively thin, and the Z9 offers an in-display fingerprint scanner.


In terms of the camera, this phone comes with two shooters on the back. The primary of which will be the 50MP Sony IMX882 sensor. Once again, the iQOO phone is the first to have this sensor in its price segment. Moreover, this sensor offers optical image stabilisation. The auxiliary lens is a 2MP depth sensor.
