In terms of optics, the iQOO 3 will feature a 64-megapixel main camera joined by a 2-megapixel and two 13-megapixel sensors. The iQOO 3 also has an octa-core processor clocked at 2.84GHz which is most likely the Snapdragon 865 SoC. The iQOO 3 will come with the latest Android 10 out of the box. It could also feature 6GB, 8GB or 12GB RAM. The phone will likely have two storage options – 128GB and 256GB. Further, the phone will support 5G connectivity and also come with a 4,370mAh battery. The phone will most likely feature a USB-C port that will support fast charging.
The launch date of the Vivo iQOO 3 is not yet revealed. However, since the phone has already bagged its TENAA certification and the company has started teasing it, we expect the device to launch soon. However, interested consumers will still not be able to use 5G services in India. It is estimated that 5G technologies are still a year or two away from coming to mainstream use in the country.
