The new iQOO 11S has a design similar to that of the iQOO 11, including a big rectangular camera island on the back that has three sensors.
While iQOO was busy with the launch of the Neo 7 Pro in India, it has introduced a new phone in its home market, China, as well. The company has launched iQOO 11S as a minor upgrade over the iQOO 11, but it features Qualcomm’s most powerful chip, Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. That makes the iQOO 11S nearly as powerful as the Xiaomi 13 Ultra.
The new iQOO 11S has a design similar to that of the iQOO 11, including a big rectangular camera island on the back that has three sensors and an LED flashlight. On the front, the phone has a tall display and a centre-aligned punch-hole. It looks appealing enough for its price.
iQOO 11S price
The iQOO 11S costs a starting price of CNY 3,799 (roughly Rs 43,000). Its top-end variant is priced at CNY 4,799 (roughly Rs 54,000). The phone comes in different colour variants, the translated names of which are Listening to the Tide in Qianting, Legendary, and Track, which uses the BMW Motorsport theme. While the phone will go for sale in China from July 10, there is no information about whether or when the iQOO 11S will come to India.
