The design is where it all begins. The triple-colour stripe design, which combines the brand colours of iQOO and BMW M Motorsport, is new to the iQOO 11 series. The fibreglass and vegan leather used in this finish, known as the iQOO 11 Legend edition, have both been treated with a stain-resistant finish.
Specifications and features of the iQOO 11 and iQOO 11 Pro
The 6.78-inch E6 AMOLED display, which supports a 144Hz refresh rate and has a 2K resolution, is the same across both phones. The display on the basic model is flat, however, the screen on the 11 Pro 5G is curved. The upper centre of the front camera features a hole-punch cutout. The device is certified for HDR10+ and 1440Hz PWM Dimming.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, quad-channel LPDDR5x RAM, and UFS 4.0 storage are all included in both phones. A virtual RAM extension option of up to 8GB is available on both devices.
They also contain Vivo’s newly developed V2 customised Image Signal Processor (ISP). According to reports, the custom ISP offers better performance while capturing portrait photographs or recording movies in low light. Both phones have a triple-camera setup on the back, but the internal sensors are different.
The iQOO 11 Pro 5G is equipped with a 50MP Sony IMX866 primary camera sensor, a 50MP ultra-wide camera with a 150-degree fisheye lens, and a 13MP portrait-telephoto camera. A 50MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultrawide sensor, and a 13MP telephoto sensor with a 2x optical zoom are all included on the iQOO 11 5G’s three cameras, in contrast. The primary camera sensors on both smartphones include visual picture stabilisation capabilities (OIS). Both phones come with a 16MP front camera as standard.
A 5000mAh battery and 120W rapid charging are included with the iQOO 11. The 11 Pro 5G is powered by a lesser 4700mAh battery, but it offers 200W fast charging, 50W wireless charging, and 10W reverse wireless charging.
Both smartphones come preloaded with the most recent version of Android, version 13, with iQOO’s Origin OS Forest put on top.
