OnePlus already released a top-tier flagship phone in the first half of this year: the OnePlus 10 Pro. That is why, for the second half of the year, it decided to opt for a flagship killer: the OnePlus 10T. Meanwhile, another device identified by the letter T went official, and it is a flagship killer just like the OnePlus one. We are talking about the iQOO 9T. Both of these devices are amazing phones for gamers and for all of those people who seek awesome performance with a pretty low budget if compared to the most expensive phones in the market. That is exactly the reason why we decided to publish this comparison between the specifications of the OnePlus 10T and the iQOO 9T. This will surely be a very interesting comparison for gamers and power users out there.

The design of the iQOO 9T is more original than the one of the OnePlus 10T, even though it is a bigger phone in terms of overall dimensions. Its rear side is made of two different textures and it is also bi-color. Further, it is made with premium materials: aluminum for the frame and glass for the rear side, with a front glass protected by Gorilla Glass 5. Last but not least, it has the IP52 certification protecting the body against dust and water. The OnePlus 10T comes with a glass back, a front glass protected by Gorilla Glass 5, and a plastic frame. It does not have any certification against dust and water, but it is a more compact phone thanks to the presence of a smaller display. Its design is reminiscent of the one of the OnePlus 10 Pro, with a big camera module and a 2×2 matrix of sensors.
The display of the iQOO 9T is slightly wider with a diagonal of 6.78 inches, but these two panels have the same specifications. They come with the AMOLED technology guaranteeing brilliant colors and deep blacks, as well as a Full HD+ resolution of 1080p. They have a 120 Hz max refresh rate and the HDR10+ certification, as well as a very high peak brightness and an in-display fingerprint reader. The iQOO 9T adds an important technology for gaming: the Monster Touch, allowing the touch screen to be pressure sensitive. This is important in the most competitive games as it allows for more commands in a single screen area, without the need for air triggers or physical triggers outside the display. Both these phones are equipped with stereo speakers providing a great audio experience, but they lack a 3.5 mm audio jack.
Specs & Software
The chipset powering the OnePlus 10T and the iQOO 9T is exactly the same: the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, currently the most powerful chipset released by Qualcomm to date. It is built with a 4 nm production process and it has an octa-core architecture composed of a Cortex X2 CPU running at a max frequency of 3.19 GHz, three Cortex A710 CPUs running at a max frequency of 2.75 GHz, four Cortex A510 CPUs running at a max frequency of 1.8 GHz, and an Adreno 730 GPU. What makes the difference is the memory configuration, better on the OnePlus 10T which provides up to 16 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256 GB of native UFS 3.1 storage, while the iQOO 9T stops at 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of native storage. Both the handsets come with a very advanced cooling system and Android 12 out of the box, as well as highly customized user interfaces on top.
If you are searching for the most advanced camera phone, you should opt for the iQOO 9T without thinking twice. It is equipped with a triple camera setup including a 50 MP Sony IMX766 main sensor supporting OIS, a 12 MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom, and a 13 MP ultrawide camera with a FOV of 120 degrees. The OnePlus 10T has exactly the same main camera (and even the same 16 MP selfie shooter), but the secondary sensors are inferior: an 8 MP ultrawide camera and a useless 2 MP macro lens.
The OnePlus 10T has a slightly bigger battery with a capacity of 4800 mAh and it should last a bit more on a single charge, due to similar hardware components. It also features a faster charging technology, with a power of 150W. The iQOO 9T has a smaller 4700 mAh battery with 120W fast charging.
The iQOO 9T carries a $630 or Rs. 49,999 starting price in the Indian market, and you need at least $630 or Rs. 49,999 even to purchase the OnePlus 10T in India (for the base configuration with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of native storage). The iQOO 9T looks a bit more interesting because of its premium design, Monster Touch, and better cameras, but the OnePlus 10T has more RAM, a bigger battery, and faster charging. Which one would you pick?
