iQOO Z9 Turbo Overview

Design and Display

Starting with the design, the iQOO Z9 Turbo takes some cues from iQOO 12 and iQOO 12 Pro. As such, you get an identical camera module and a flat middle frame, likely plastic. Talking of the display, it boasts a 6.78-inch TCL C8 AMOLED panel with a 1.5K resolution and a 144Hzz refresh rate. This hole-punch screen also supports 3840Hz high-frequency PWM dimming and a local peak brightness of 4500nits.
