After much hype, iQOO has finally launched the new iQOO 11 5G in India. The new flagship succeeds the iQOO 9 and is the first Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 smartphone in India. Other than this, it comes with the BMW M Motorsport design we have seen on the previous iQOO phones, a 2K display, and more. To recall, it was launched in China back in December 2022. Here’s a look at the details below.
