Both the iQOO 11 and the OnePlus 11 are equipped with the same Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 CPU and come pre-installed with Android 13.

But when it comes to gaming, iQoo 11 is the star. It sports a dual-axis linear motor and liquid cooling system for improved gaming and cooling performance. OnePlus, on the other hand, has a single X-axis linear motor with a VC chamber for cooling.
So the actual decision is whether to get the iQoo 11 or hold off until the OnePlus 11 is released in India. So choose the iQoo 11 if you want a premium smartphone with excellent gaming performance, a faster refresh rate display, and support for fast charging. Otherwise, you may wait until the OnePlus 11 comes to India.
