iQOO’s flagship phones have been out long ago. The iQOO 10 series debuted with 200W ultra-fast flash charging. The latter allows the battery to get fully charged in only 10 minutes. Also, inside, the phones carry Qualcomm’s first-generation Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip and self-developed V1+ imaging chip. The phone’s lowest version was priced at 3699 yuan ($534). The next-gen model was put in the works long ago. Today, a Weibo tipster disclosed the screen parameters of the iQOO 11 series.
According to the blogger, the iQOO 11 series will come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip (SM8550). Also, it will use a single-hole flexible screen with a 2K resolution and a refresh rate of 120Hz. The display will support PWM dimming and use Samsung’s E6 material. Of course, everything might change. But the handsets we are talking about will be launched this year. So it’s less likely that iQOO will make major changes. If so, there will likely be two variants – the iQOO 11 standard version and the iQOO 11 Pro. Both will come with the aforementioned specs.
Previously, we heard that this year, Android manufacturers would release three generations of flagship smartphones a year. The new Android phone equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip will be released as soon as late November this year.
By the way, the iQOO 10 standard version uses a 6.78-inch Samsung E5 flexible straight screen and supports a 120Hz refresh rate. The iQOO 10 Pro uses a 2K resolution Samsung E5 screen, supports LTPO, and has an ultrasonic 3D wide-area fingerprint recognition function. At the same time, the entire iQOO 10 series supports HDR10+ and DC dimming, with a local maximum brightness of 1500nits and a contrast ratio of 8 million:1. Thus, in comparison to the current generation, the upcoming series won’t differ much in terms of display.
