iQOO as we know has made great strides lately in the flagship smartphone category. It focuses mainly on the gaming aspect but at the same time doesn't compromise on other areas. By the looks of it, the Xiaomi 13 series and the iQOO 11 series look neck and neck in terms of features. Both will be powered by the same chipset and Samsung's E6 flat and curved AMOLED displays. It will boil down to who tunes the processor and displays better. Also, the pricing will play a major role. Expect the Xiaomi 13 series and iQOO 11 series to lock horns in the Indian market in January 2023.
