Vivo has recently released the Vivo X90 series with impressive hardware and cameras. Now, the company’s sub-brand is preparing to steal the attention with the reveal of the iQOO 11 series. The new smartphones will go official on December 2. According to the company, the iQOO 11 5G will be the “king of gaming smartphones”. These certainly are bold worlds.
iQOO 11 5G specifications
The company revealed that the iQOO 11 series will coincide with the debut of the brand in Malaysia. The event will be dubbed “iQOO 11 5G Experience Day” and will reveal the phone in all its glory. The four-hour event will begin at 6 PM local time. The iQOO 11 arrives as the brand, and also as Malaysia’s first Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 phone. It can be the first anymore, after all, Vivo managed to outperform Xiaomi and Motorola with the Vivo X90 Pro+. Anyway, it will still be an interesting release as it will be the first Snapdragon 8 Gen 2-powered phone to go outside China. The Vivo X90 Pro+, Xiaomi 14, and Motorola X40 may take a time to escape China.
iQOO has not detailed the iQOO 11 5G specs sheet yet. However, the company’s media invite says it is “the king of gaming smartphones”. That’s promising, although, it depends on what you’re expecting from a gaming phone. The iQOO 11 5G will have powerful hardware, but it won’t come in the same category as the ROG Phone or Black Shark series. It looks like a regular premium smartphone but impresses with the hardware. We expect the In-Display Monster Touch technology to be present here.
The company also teases the “fastest refresh rate” and “powerful battery life”. In fact, the leaked specs point to a 6.78-inch Samsung E6 AMOLED with Quad HD+ resolution and 144 Hz refresh rate. The battery will be a huge 5,000 mAh cell with 120W fast charging. The phone is also rumored to impress in the camera department with the new Vivo V2 ISP.
