Qualcomm has announced the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC and smartphone brands are already in the race to launch the first phone with the next-gen chip. One such brand is iQOO which had the details for its next flagship leaked online. In this article, we discuss all the rumors and specs surrounding the upcoming iQOO 11 Pro.
iQOO 11 Pro: Rumors Roundup
Next-gen Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip
Unsurprisingly, iQOO 11 Pro will be powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. The chip went official at Qualcomm’s annual Snapdragon Summit. It is based on TSMC’s 4nm architecture and features 2nd gen Armv9 CPU Cores.
The new chip has Cortex X3 leading the line. It is accompanied by four Performance cores (2.8GHz), and three Efficiency cores (@2.0GHz). As seen in the image above, the iQOO 11 Pro with this silicon scored an impressive 1451 points on single-core and 4681 points on multi-cores.
Vivo V2 ISP
In addition to Qualcomm’s flagship chip, iQOO 11 Pro will rock the latest V2 ISP engine from its parent company. Vivo just unveiled the ISP earlier this month, and it looks like iQOO 11 Pro will be among the first to receive it. Vivo V2 follows up the maiden V1 and the V1+ chip that came after it. It brings a dedicated SRAM which Vivo says reduces power consumption by 200% compared to traditional external DDR memory design.

However, it’s not clear what the camera setup will be. Most likely, iQOO will go with a similar setup as last year with a 50MP primary, 50MP ultrawide, and a telephoto lens. That said, we can still expect some improvements on the actual sensor.
Rest of the Specs
IQOO 11 Pro will likely sport a 6.78-inch E6 AMOLED screen from Samsung. The phone will boast a QHD resolution as well as a 120Hz refresh rate. It will also support 1440HZ PWM dimming to nullify flickers. As with previous years, iQOO will have a BMW-inspired colorway for offer at the launch. The phone will pack a 4,700mAh battery inside and will supposedly charge at 200W.
iQOO 11 Pro Launch Date (Expected)
According to the reports, iQOO 11 Pro will go official in the next few months. It is said to arrive in the Indian market by January.
