iQOO 11 Unveiled

Just like the Pro version, the vanilla model sports a 6.78-inch E6 AMOLED display, which supports a 144Hz refresh rate and has a 2K resolution. The key distinction is that the vanilla model’s display is flat, while the 11 Pro 5G’s screen is curved. The front camera has a hole-punch cutout in the upper center. The device also has 1440Hz PWM Dimming and HDR10+ certification.

The handset is powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC coupled with quad-channel LPDDR5x RAM and UFS 4.0 storage. It offers a virtual RAM expansion feature of up to 8GB. Additionally, the iQOO 11 includes the brand-new V2 customized Image Signal Processor (ISP) created by Vivo. The custom ISP is said to provide improved performance when taking portrait photos or filming videos in low light.

The phone includes a triple-camera configuration on the back, however, the sensors onboard are different.

The iQOO 11 5G features three cameras: a 50MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultrawide sensor, and a 13MP telephoto sensor with a 2x optical zoom. The phone’s main camera sensor is capable of optical image stabilization (OIS). There’s a 16MP front camera for selfie lovers.

The iQOO 11 comes with a 5000mAh battery and 120W fast charging capabilities. The latest Android 13 operating system is preinstalled on the device, with iQOO’s Origin OS Forest layered on top.
