Vivo’s sub-brand iQOO will soon make its debut in India. The company has teased its first-ever smartphone launch for the country for about a week now. Now, it turns out that we finally have the launch date (and the moniker) of the first-ever iQOO smartphone in India. Recently, the company’s social media presence has revealed that the first device will indeed be dubbed the iQOO 3, and it will launch on February 25. Let’s have a look at what all we know about the device.
iQOO 3 5G Smartphone will Launch on February 25
iQOO has made its product page live on the Indian e-commerce website Flipkart. The product page for the device does not explicitly mention anything about the moniker; the company’s official Twitter account recently tweeted a new promotional video for the device, which was taken down moments after they posted it. That, however, could not stop the eagle-eyed ones out there, and we have fetched the screenshots of the tweet that suggested that the device will be the iQOO 3 itself. The iQOO 3 5G is also slated to launch in China on the same date, by the way.
Speaking of the specifications of the iQOO 3 5G, one has to start with the most noteworthy of them all – the iQOO 3 5G will be India’s first-ever smartphone to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset. It will also be the country’s first-ever 5G smartphone. No matter whether 5G is relevant in India as of now or not, the iQOO 3 5G will take the crown of being the first. Coupled with the processor will be up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of onboard storage (UFS 3.1).
Coming to the display, the iQOO 3 5G will sport a 6.44-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 1080 x 2400 pixels resolution. The device will measure 158.51 x 74.88 x 9.16mm, and it will weigh in at 214.5 grams. Speaking of the battery, the iQOO 3 5G will be fueled with a 4,370mAh battery that will come with up to 55W fast charging capacity. For the camera enthusiasts out there, the iQOO 3 5G will feature an array of four cameras at the back – a 64MP primary camera, a couple of 13MP sensors, and a 2MP camera. At the front, the device will sport a 16MP selfie shooter.
