Is the iQoo 11 5G worth the hype or should you expect something better?
iQoo 11 5G is the first Android flagship of 2023 to be launched in India. The company had a remarkable premium lineup last year and the iQoo 11 5G is the first smartphone to be launched as part of iQoo’s new 11 series. Being a flagship, one can only expect the best in terms of performance. The iQoo 11 5G sports the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC for improved performance, and it also has improved hardware features over the iQoo 9T, its predecessor, such as a higher-resolution 2K AMOLED display, battery bigger and the promise of better photos and videos from the updated cameras. However, is that all iQoo claims to be?
On this week’s episode of Orbital, the Gadgets 360 podcast, guest host Roydon Cerejo — that’s me — talks to reviewer Pranav Hegde, who spent a few weeks reviewing the iQoo 11 5G. We also have lead reviewer Sheldon Pinto who reviewed most of the iQoo lineup last year, to get his take on the new iQoo 11 5G.
On paper, the iQoo 11 5G looks quite impressive. It has become more expensive compared to its counterpart from the previous year with prices now starting at Rs. 59,999. However, it also promises to deliver the goods and on paper it has a solid list of top-end specs. If you’ve ever read our review, then you know this is a knockout.
However, the big question is whether you should jump on it right away or wait a bit longer for more flagships to launch.

Qualcomm. We try to answer that burning question in this episode and dive deep into the good and bad points of the iQoo 11 5G.
