Right on schedule the new iQOO 11 arrives in India in partnership with Amazon. The phone made its debut in China a month ago and we already have a written review (also a video review) if you want to dive into the details.
One piece of information that we’re still missing is the price for India – the event starts at noon local time and will be livestreamed on Twitter and YouTube (we have embedded the latter below).
You can also visit Amazon’s landing page for the phone. Chances are that sales won’t start immediately so you may want to reserve a place in line. Amazon will hold a live Q&A session with Rajiv Makhni (Managing Editor, Technology, NDTV) on January 13 (Friday), in case you have any questions about the launch of the self-proclaimed “India’s fastest smartphone”.
This claim is made on the basis that the iQOO 11 is the first Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 to reach the Indian market. It’s not clear if the iQOO 11 Pro will join it. One of the major differences between them is the battery system – the Pro charges at 200W over a wire and 50W wirelessly, the vanilla iQOO 11 features 120W wired-only charging (and it has 300mAh more capacity in its battery). The other difference is the ultra wide camera, 50MP on the Pro, 8MP on the vanilla model.
