iQOO is bringing the first Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 smartphone iQOO 11 in India and we have to keep calm because that’s just the best of so many features coming along. The flagship will be officially unveiled on January 10, 2023 and the sales will start on January 13, 2023.
In the latest series of smartphones by iQOO, iQOO 11 is the highest spec model right now. Continuing its streak of launching phones in China first, iQOO 11 was launched in China on December 8th after getting delayed a little bit. iQOO 11 is China’s 2nd phone to get Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 after Vivo X90+ but it’s still first in India, that’s one of the reasons why it is the fastest growing smartphone brand in the country.
iQOO 11 Prominent Features:
The iQOO 11 and iQOO 11 Pro have slight differences such as the high-megapixel ultra-wide camera, curved display, and 200W power adapter. But the both smartphones are powered by Qualcomm’s fastest chipset – Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. Compared to Snapdragon 8 Gen, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 offers a jump of 35% and 25% in CPU and GPU performance respectively, and is 40% more power efficient. Compared to Snapdragon 8+ gen 1 the CPU and GPU performance has increased by 10% and 20% respectively. The iQOO 11 ships with UFS 4.0 storage and LPDDR5 RAM which also adds to the performance. the LPPDR5x RAM offers a significant jump of 1.5x in terms of Read and write speeds. So now there will be no app crashing and consumers will get a smooth running of the background app. At the same time 20% less power consumption. The UFS 4.0 also got a big upgrade of Read/write speeds by 3.5x. Now a file of 2GB will take a few seconds to transfer.
The iQOO 11 also features a Vivo V2 chip that shares the load of the GPU thus giving a boost to the 3D Mark score. The V2 Chip has been designed to help Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in terms of graphic performance and Night photography. With V2 Imaging processing chip offers AI Computing, and 45MB SRAM which chip benefits consumers in two ways:
The V2 chip enables Game Frame Interpolation which helps a consumer to experience 90fps, 120fps or 144fps in selected games where 60fps/90fps is the current max setting. This technology will add a virtual frame in real time for smoother frames in games like COD, Free fire and Genshin Impact.
The V2 chip also offers Real Time Extreme night vision that can be used to record brighter videos beyond what you can see in less than 10Lux Scenario (which Means almost no light situations).
Another iQOO 11 highlight will be its display. iQOO 11 will be offering a 2K E6 AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 144 Hz. It will be the first 2K E6 AMOLED phone in India. The display will have a touch sampling rate of 300 Hz making sure that every touch gets noticed. With a dynamic refresh rate, the refresh rate automatically switches on the same screen for better UI fluidity and power consumption. Other than that the 1800 nits peak brightness, 517 PPI pixel density, and XDR + Dolby Vision Display are what make the display amazing.
Other features like a 50 MP primary lens with a custom Sony VCS IMX866 sensor, along with a 50 MP ultra-wide and 13 MP selfie snapper are just extra fireworks. The device holds 4700 mA battery juice with support for 200W fast charging. There’s no speculated price range where iQOO could put it right now but let’s hope that we do get a chance to enjoy the power performer.
