iQOO 11 Pro may Launch in India in Jan, Key Specs Leaked
As we get closer to a new year, there has been a rise in leaks of upcoming flagship smartphones from various brands. Now, the latest report hints at the launch timeline for the iQOO 11 Pro model and even reveals some of its key specifications. So let’s have a look.

The report hints at the launch timeframe for the iQOO 11 Pro as well as some of its notable specifications. Being the next-gen flagship, it arrives as no surprise that the 11 Pro is rumored to be equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, which was previously also spotted on a benchmarking platform. Apart from this, the device is also expected to feature Vivo’s V2 image processing chipset, which should help improve low-light photography and overall processing speed.

On the front, the iQOO 11 Pro will sport a tall 6.78-inch E6AMOLED display that will likely have a high refresh rate. It will retain a BMW M Motorsports-inspired design as well, as per the sources, and run on Android 13 OS out of the box. The sources stated that the Chinese smartphone maker’s upcoming flagship handset will launch sometime in January 2023. This means that it will also be one of the first devices in the market to feature the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC.

Unfortunately, this was all the information shared in the report. Although our previous reports have also revealed some of its other notable specifications. Reportedly, the device will have a 4700mAh battery pack that will support a whopping 200W fast charging. Its display will have a QHD+ resolution with a 120Hz refresh rate and up to 1440Hz PWM dimming for flicker avoidance.

Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 vs Apple A16 Bionic

In this comparison between the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and Apple A16 Bionic chipsets, we have analyzed the CPU and GPU in detail. Along with that, we have also discussed the Geekbench score, ISP, AI engine, 5G, wireless connectivity, and more.

Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 vs A16 Bionic: CPU

In our comparison between Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and Apple A16 Bionic, let’s first talk about the CPU. Both the mobile processors are built on TSMC’s 4nm process node so there is some similarity, at least initially. However, things veer off from here. While Qualcomm uses an Octa-core setup, Apple has gone with a Hexa-core CPU design.

Qualcomm has slightly changed the core configuration this time on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. To compete against and attempt to beat the likes of Apple, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 packs in a single powerful Cortex-X3 core clocked at 3.2GHz, 2x Cortex-A715 cores clocked at 2.8GHz, 2x Cortex-A710 cores clocked at 2.8GHz, and 3x Cortex-A510 cores clocked at 2.0GHz. So, Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 has embraced a new 1+4+3 architecture, which is more like a 1+(2+2)+3 CPU design.

On the other hand, the A16 Bionic from Apple packs 2x high-performance cores (Everest) clocked at 3.46GHz and 4x high-efficiency cores (Sawtooth) clocked at 2.02GHz. As you may notice, the A16 Bionic’s Everest cores can go higher than Snapdragon 8 Gen 2’s prime Cortex-X3 core and almost touches 3.5GHz. This is the reason Apple always tops the list when it comes to single-core tasks. And since it packs two Everest cores, as opposed to a single Cortex-X3 core on 8 Gen 2, it also remains ahead in multi-threaded tasks.

If we talk about the efficiency cores, Qualcomm has now come on par with Apple, both in terms of performance and efficiency. By replacing the aging A55 core with the Cortex-A510 core, which is 35% faster and 20% more power-efficient, Qualcomm is on the right track. So to put it simply, despite the 35% YoY performance jump seen on Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, it’s still behind A16 Bionic in the CPU department, squarely because Apple’s Everest cores operate exceptionally well even at a higher frequency while keeping thermals in check.
