The iQOO 11 is powered by latest technologies on top of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC – including 16GB LPDDR5X and 256GB UFS 4.0 storage. Another 8GB of virtual RAM is available on top of the hardware RAM for better performance. Battery is 5000mAh, and supports 120W FlashCharge which can top up from 0% to full in 25 minutes.

Cooling is managed by a vapor chamber cooling system with stainless steel plus three graphite layers; the structure is held by “aviation-grade” aluminum middle frame which claims to drop up to 2°C on the top section of the device.

Display is powered by the latest 6.78″ QHD+ Samsung E6 AMOLED display, paired with V2 chip which predicts motion and compensate according to reduce smearing and lag. Similar to NVIDIA’s DLSS 3.0 – this chip can interpolate frames up to 90 or 120Hz for games that do not natively support high refresh rates.

It comes with a pair of many things – including “In-Display Dual Monster Touch”, which operates two halves of the display separately allowing more inputs; dual X-Axis linear motor for better haptics; dual symmetrically positioned speakers – which also utilizes special algorithm to boost the sound field up to 120° wide.

Cameras are powered by three sensors, with the primary sensor courtesy of Samsung ISOCELL GN5 at 50MP. 13MP telephoto/portrait camera1 and 8MP ultrawide camera works in tandem for different shooting scenarios.
