Officially, iQOO 11 and iQOO 11 Pro are, and in most important ways, almost identical.
It starts with design. The iQOO 11 series brings a tri-color stripe design, which is a combination of iQOO and BMW M Motorsport brand colors. This end is called iQOO 11 Legend release It uses both fiberglass and vegan leather, which is then coated with a stain-resistant finish.
Both have a 6.78-inch Samsung E6 AMOLED display with a resolution of 1440 x 3200 pixels with a maximum refresh rate of 144Hz, 1B color, and HDR10 + support. iQOO Pair 11 uses the new V2 chip, which promotes high frame rate processing, and can enhance game performance.
They both also share the same computing platform, which is an impressive one — it’s all based on a 4nm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset paired with 8GB, 12GB, or 16GB of RAM. The pair also brings a new generation of storage – UFS 4.0, which promises to be faster than the current UFS 3.1.
Continuing the thread of performance, iQOO 11 series can boost RAM further with Extended RAM 3.0 by up to 8GB. Being an iQOO, it means gaming is high on the priority list, so vivo has equipped the phones with a Vapor Chamber cooling system with a 4013mm2 stainless steel chamber.
The cameras are slightly different between iQOO 11 and 11 Pro. The iQOO 11 has a 50MP 1/1.57-inch Samsung GN5 main camera, a 13MP 3x “portrait” camera, and an 8MP 16mm fixed-focus ultra-wide camera. iQOO 11 Pro brings a 1/1.49-inch Sony IMX866 sensor with 50MP resolution for the main camera, a 50MP 150-degree ultrawide camera, and the same 13MP 3x camera.
The cameras take advantage of Pure Night View and 4K Super Night Video to improve noise reduction in both photos and videos, as well as a mode that offers near-instant Zero-Shutter-Lag Motion Snapshot capture.
Another difference between iQOO 11 and 11 Pro is the front glass. The Pro has curved glass on top of its 6.78-inch display, while the iQOO 11’s display has the edges in the traditional 2.5D curve.
Batteries and charging specifications are also different. iQOO 11 packs a 5,000mAh battery that can recharge at 120W. iQOO 11 Pro drops the battery size to 4,700mAh but charging goes up to 200W. The Pro also has 50W wireless charging, which is missing from the vanilla model.
