The iQOO 11 will be launched in Malaysia on December 2 as the country’s first Snapdragon 8 Gen 2-powered smartphone. Today, iQOO announced it will also be introduced in China on the same day.
The promo page set up on vivo’s official Chinese website reveals the iQOO 11 series launch event will begin in China at 2:30PM local time, and since the company uses the word “series,” it’s safe to say iQOO will unveil multiple smartphones next Friday (likely vanilla and Pro models).
The page also includes pictures of what’s said to be the iQOO 11 5G, corroborating a recent design leak. You can see the camera island houses three cameras and confirms the presence of the vivo V2 chip, which debuted a couple of days ago on the vivo X90 series.
The iQOO 11’s rear panel also sports red, black, and blue-colored stripes inspired by the BMW M Motorsport’s design. And upon closer inspection, you can see the iQOO 11 has a faux leather cover, which is nice since it should help with the grip. The smartphone has the volume rocker and power button on the right-side frame, while the antenna lines on the top and bottom frames suggest they are made of metal.
iQOO China says the iQOO 11 series will “create a new era of e-sports visual effects,” but doesn’t elaborate on that. We’ll hopefully know what exactly that means in the lead-up to the December 2 unveiling.
