After teasing the phone for more than a month, the subsidiary of Vivo, iQOO, finally unveiled their first smartphone in Malaysia and also the first smartphone running on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 here.
The iQOO 11 5G is powered by the new Qualcomm’s most powerful mobile chipset, 16GB LPDDR5X RAM and 256GB UFS 4.0. It is also equipped with Extended RAM 3.0, capable of adding up to 8GB of extended virtual memory.
The phone boasts a 6.78-inch 2K Samsung E6 AMOLED display with 144Hz refresh rate, 1 billion colours, and HDR10+ support. Also, it is using a V2 chip that can boost the frame rate to 90/120fps through frame interpolation, even when the game does not support these frame rates.
On top of that, the iQOO 11 5G supports In-Display Dual Monster Touch. With this feature, the left and right sides of the screen can be operated separately, and users can play with four fingers instead of two for faster, more convenient in-game control. Besides that, the Dual X-Axis Linear Motor promises a better haptic experience when gaming.
In addition, it has a large 5,000mAh battery which can be recharged with a 120W FlashCharge, capable of charging the device from zero to 100% in 25 minutes. The phone is equipped with a Vapor Chamber cooling system with a 4,013mm2 stamped stainless steel chamber to keep the phone from becoming toasty.
On the rear of the phone, there’s a 50MP GN5 Ultra-Sensing Camera, a 13MP Telephoto & Portrait Camera, and an 8MP Ultra Wide-Angle Camera. For your selfie needs, there’s a 16MP camera.
The new iQOO 11 5G is available in Malaysia in a single colour scheme – the Legend edition and it was inspired by BMW M Motorsport.
The material composition of the iQOO 11 5G Legend edition combines fibreglass and vegan leather to form a strong and durable back panel that ensures a comfortable grip. Furthermore, the device has a stain-resistant coating applied on top of the silicone leather to give it a high-quality finish that is soft to the touch.
