One of the early phones to come with the yet-to-be-announced Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is the iQOO 11. Today, this series of flagship smartphones appeared on GeekBench with model number V2243A. The screenshots disclose some features that we have not been familiar with.
The screenshots show that the handset scores 1451 in the single-core performance test and 4681 in the multi-core performance test. The super core frequency is 3.19GHz. Plus, the handset runs the latest Android 13 operating system.
A Weibo tipster said that this is China’s first Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 phone to score such high points. For comparison, the 3.36GHz version of the Samsung model has a single-core benchmark score of over 1500 and a multi-core benchmark score of over 4800.
By the way, the same phone passed 3C certification at the beginning of the month. At that time, we learned that the handset would come with a 120W charger. So there is every reason to think that at least the vanilla variant will support 120W fast charging. But we have also heard that the Pro model in the series will support a much higher charging speed, 200W. We should also mention that the iQOO 11 Pro may continue to use the 10C ultra-thin pole-piece battery. The latter ensures fast charging efficiency and considers the thin and light body.
Before this, we heard that the forthcoming iQOO 11 series would sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip. Among them, the iQOO 11 standard version will use a 2K resolution Samsung E6 substrate flexible straight screen and supports 120Hz refresh rate and PWM dimming. The highest configuration variant will come with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of native storage.
However, there are still at least two-three weeks before the phone is officially announced. So we will still get more info on its selling points.
