iQoo 3 launched with Snapdragon 865, Quad Rear Cameras and 5G support
iQOO , Vivo’s subsidiary dedicated to the gaming segment, just presented its latest smartphone, the iQOO 3 5G. After several weeks full of leaks and rumors, all secrets were finally revealed in an official way. The iQoo 3 offers all the features one would expect from an ultra high-end smartphone for half the price. Alas, for now, it will only be released in India.
At the moment, we do not know if the Vivo iQOO 3 will be launched in other global markets. The objective of the iQOO range remains, in fact, to offer smartphones at low prices, which are currently reserved for the Indian market.
The iQoo 3 comes in both 4G and 5G variants, with 5G support limited only to the top-end configuration of the phone.
The Vivo iQOO 3 indeed offers definitively high-end features, with a large bezel-less OLED screen of 6.44 inches (Full HD +, brightness up to 1200 nits) with a hole-punch selfie camera at the top left, and basically represents all the characteristic usually reserved for much more expensive smartphones.
It is indeed one of the first smartphones on the market to be equipped with a Snapdragon 865 chipset coupled with 8 or 12 GB of RAM in LPDDR5 format and 128 or 256 GB of storage in UFS 3.1. There is also a rather substantial battery, with a capacity of 4,400 mAh associated with a 55W charger allowing to recover more than half of the battery in just 15 minutes.
Regarding the screen, the Vivo iQOO 3 benefits from a 6.44-inch OLED panel with Full HD + definition. The screen has a hole-punch selfie camera at the top left to integrate a photo module, and also accommodates the fingerprint reader in the display unit. According to iQOO , the smartphone can also go up to a brightness of 1200 nits.
Finally, regarding it’s camera capabilities, there is a 16 megapixel selfie snapper with an f/2.45 aperture and support for 4K video capture, housed inside a hole-punch. On the rear, the device packs four cameras: a main sensor of 48 megapixel (f1 / 8), a 13 megapixel telephoto lens(f / 2.46), an ultra wide-angle of 13 megapixels (f / 2.2) and a camera of 2 megapixels for depth of field for images captured in portrait mode.
It comes equipped with a 4,440mAh battery with support for the proprietary 55W Super FlashCharge technology.
The dual SIM (Nano) iQoo 3 runs Android 10 with the iQoo UI 1.0 on top. It comes in Quantum Silver, Volcano Orange, and Tornado Black colour options, and will go on sale in India starting March 4 at 12pm (noon) via Flipkart and the company’s official iQoo.com website.
