iQOO was the first company in India to launch a flagship smartphone with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. The smartphone was launched in January 2023 and performed well in the market. iQOO offered significant discounts during the recent Amazon sales to make it affordable for customers in India. A month ago, a tipster claimed that iQOO is working on another smartphone in the iQOO 11 series, which will be launched as iQOO 11S. The tipster had shared the upcoming smartphone’s model number, launch timeline, and key specifications.

The tipster revealed the primary upgrade between the vanilla 11 and the forthcoming 11S would lie between fast charging and performance upgrades. iQOO is likely to ship the smartphone with a high core frequency version or overclocked version of Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, built on a 4nm process. The chipset would resemble the one we saw in the Galaxy S23 series.
