iQOO is gearing up to launch its next flagship device, the iQOO 11 Pro, in China pretty soon. Along with it, the company is expected to announce the vanilla iQOO 11, which is set to debut in Malaysia around the same time. More about the iQOO 11 and its leaks and rumors here.
iQOO 11 Rumors Roundups:
iQOO’s official social media handle in Malaysia has confirmed the release of iQOO 11 in the country. The brand is also using hashtags like “Monster is Coming” and “Monster Inside” with BMW cars to confirm its continued partnership with BMW M Motorsport for another year.
That means the smartphone will also be available in a Legend edition with white back panels and red, black, and blue stripes to represent BMW Motorsport. Similarly, its leaked image suggests a rectangular camera module with three cutouts on the back.
Furthermore, iQOO has confirmed that the device will be powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile processor. With a new high-performance Cortex-X3 core, four Performance cores (2.8GHz), and three Efficiency cores (@2.0GHz), this new SoC boosts performance by up to 35%.
The phone is also expected to include Vivo’s new V2 ISP chip for improved camera and AI abilities. Other aspects of the device, such as the camera, battery, and display, remain unknown as of now.
Launch and Availability
The brand has not specified an exact date for the launch of iQOO 11 in Malaysia. However, its parent company, Vivo, is set to release the X90 Series with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and V2 chip today in China. Thus we expect iQOO is next in the line to launch 8 Gen 2-powered phones. Given this, we can expect the launch of the iQOO 11 Series in December.
