iQOO mostly likely will introduce the iQOO 11 series smartphone in China by the end of 2023. The flagship lineup of the brand is expected to include two handset models, iQOO 11 and iQOO 11 Pro. The company is also believed to be rebranding the iQOO 11 model smartphone exclusively for the Indian market as iQOO 10. This will be the company’s entry level device with optimum specifications and competitive pricing. The model number of the Indian version of iQOO 11 has appeared on the database of IMEI, which has suddenly peaked market interest in the handsets.
The expected model numbers of both devices have already been around with various reports calling to know the model numbers. Various media reports based on the inputs from online tipsters, it was speculated earlier in October that the brand is planning on launching the iQOO 11 and iQOO 11 Pro under the model numbers V2243A and V2254A, respectively. As for the Indian version of the same smartphones, the leaked reports revealed model numbers I2209 and I2212 for both options. It is also being speculated that for its India version the vanilla iQOO mostly likely be getting a revamp to iQOO 10.
The speculation around the handsets has suddenly skyrocketed with multiple reports around its official launch in a foreign land. However, the appearance of I2209 model on IMEI database has now almost confirmed the launch. The smartphone now seems to be coming to India under a different marketing name.
According to rumours of another report surfacing in all the online buzz, is that the smartphone will be launched under the iQOO 10 moniker in India and not as iQOO 11. This basically means that the Chinese iQOO 11 will most likely be called the iQOO 10 in India.
iQOO earlier this year launched its iQOO 9 series smartphones in three variants, which were the iQOO 9 SE, iQOO 9, and iQOO 9 Pro. Under the same series, the brand later in August announced the launch of iQOO 9T in India. iQOO 9T is a premium device powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. And if readers of this segment are not aware, the iQOO 9T was basically a rebadged version of the iQOO 10 that was earlier launched in China.
If rumours mill is to be believed, the iQOO 10 is said to sport a 6.78-inch Samsung E6 AMOLED panel with a full high definition resolution along with a 144 Hz screen refresh rate. It is also expected to have decent camera functionality with a 16 MP front facing camera along with a triple rear camera setup. The triple rear camera setup will include a 50 MP primary sensor, a 13 MP ultra wide shooter, and a 12 MP telephoto lens. The smartphone will most likely be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 S oC processor and run on Android 13 with the OriginOS UI for optimum performance. The iQOO 10 is also anticipated to pack good storage with up to 12 GB of RAM and up to 512 GB of internal storage. It might come with a 5,000 mAh battery unit along with 120W fast charging support.
