The new iQOO 11 5G is also the first smartphone in India to come with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 under the hood. Read on to know more about the device, its price, launch offers and more.

iQOO 11 5G: Specifications

The iQOO 11 5G comes with a 6.78-inch E6 AMOLED display with 144Hz refresh rate support and a resolution. There is a hole-punch cutout at the top centre for the front camera. The devices also come with an HDR10+ certification and 1440Hz PWM Dimming.

Under the hood, it is powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. It also features the new V2 custom Image Signal Processor (ISP) developed by Vivo. The 11 5G has a 50MP f/1.88 OIS-assisted main camera, an 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide camera and a 13MP f/2.46 telephoto camera sensor with 2x optical zoom. It sports a 16MP front camera.

iQOO 11 5G: Should you buy it?

iQOO 11 India launch comes at a time when there’s cut throat competition in the flagship space. The brand already won the race of launching the first Snapdragon 8 Gen 2-powered device and is now looking forward to winning the hearts of hardcore power users with its latest flagship.

Surely, the iQOO 11 5G packs what a power user dreams of, from having power to an ultimate high refresh rate display that can serve their needs. Looking at the specs at this point, it doesn’t seem like iQOO has done any type of cost-cutting or has moved a step backwards in comparison to its last flagship, the iQOO 9T.

However, what we do feel can be deal breaker for many is the starting price of the device. At Rs 59,999, there are plenty of other options available that may not have as much power as iQOO 11, but can surely provide users a similar experience if not identical.

Google Pixel 7 is also one of those options and while we agree it doesn’t have as much power, nor RAM, storage, charging speed or the display specs, what it does have is Google’s magic in terms of software as well as cameras. It focuses more on the experience rather than giving users raw power. It is also one of the smoothest devices available out there which we could tell after using the device.

One more option is Samsung Galaxy S22 which again may not have that much power and is a year old, but has one of the most feature-rich software – OneUI. With that said, if you are comfortable with the price of the iQOO 11 5G and want the latest specs in smartphone space, then iQOO’s latest flagship seems like a steal.
