After an initial postponement, Vivo’s anticipated iQOO 11 series officially announces its revised launch date.
New flagship phone models iQOO 11 and iQOO Neo 7 SE from the tech giant were initially scheduled to go on sale on December 2. According to Times Now, the corporation has chosen to postpone the event in light of the recent passing of Jian Zemin, the former general secretary of the Chinese Communist Party. The decision to postpone the occasion was taken out of respect and to offer the country some space for mourning.
Update: In an Instagram post, iQOO Indonesia states that the new launch day will be December 8. According to reports, Vivo will simultaneously unveil the new flagship models in Malaysia, Indonesia, and China.
The IQOO 11 Series from Vivo: What to Expect
The “king of gaming phones,” as the market has dubbed it, has Vivo fans and tech aficionados excited. To prevent any performance compromises, News18 reports that the iQOO 11 series will include both the vanilla and the Pro versions. The new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset will be used by both versions of the hardware.
It is widely known that the upcoming Xiaomi 13 and iQOO 11 phones will use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen2 SoC, which was just released and is rumoured to offer better performance.
However, the pro model’s stunning 2K display with a 144Hz refresh rate will give it an edge over the vanilla version’s display. In China, pre-orders for the iQOO 11 and iQOO Neo7 SE are currently being taken.
