At the Snapdragon Tech Summit on November 15, Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile platform. Soon after the announcement, many of the major Chinese smartphone makers, like iQOO, went on Weibo to say that they would be releasing SD8G2 phones soon. It looks like one of the first smartphones in China to have the new flagship chip will be the iQOO 11 series. It appears that the iQOO 11 series will also launch in markets outside of China soon. The reason behind it is that iQOO Malaysia has released an official teaser for the iQOO 11’s arrival.
Now that the official teaser for the iQOO 11 has been released, it appears that iQOO may launch it either by the end of this month or in December in Malaysia. It is also expected to launch in December or January in India. It is unclear whether the iQOO 11, which is launching in China first, will be the same device heading to countries outside the home market.
At the same time, 91mobiles has published a report to reveal some information about the upcoming iQOO 11 Legend. According to the publication, the iQOO 11 Legend will be launched alongside the standard iQOO 11. The report states that the iQOO 11 Legend will come with 16 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage. It does not say anything about the other specs of the device. However, some of the previous reports have leaked the key specifications of the iQOO 11.
